The Schedule I classification is reserved for drugs that are considered the most dangerous and aren’t identified as having any medicinal value.
They’re associated with severe risks of abuse, addiction, and pose serious threats of overdose or other health problems.
Ecstasy first became illegal in 1985 and is often associated with raves and electronic dance events.
A recent version of ecstasy is called “Molly,” and its popularity has skyrocketed in recent years.
However, Molly is often mixed with other drugs like methylone, making it particularly dangerous as users aren’t able to know precisely what they’re taking.
This increases the dangers associated with ecstasy and can lead to an overdose.

While ecstasy is designed to create a sense of euphoria, some dangerous side effects include:
The many risks associated with ecstasy has led to its classification as a Schedule I drug, and in Michigan, the courts deal very harshly with those they find guilty of use, possession, manufacture, and delivery of ecstasy.
Penalties can range from up to a year in jail and a misdemeanor charge to decades in prison and thousands of dollars in fines for a felony conviction.
Furthermore, in Michigan, there are enhanced penalties associated with specific circumstances, such as selling or delivering ecstasy to a minor or near a school.

Barton was amazing and I could not have had the positive outcome without his guidance. His team is prompt and great to work with. He even called while out of the country on vacation, which I feel shows he went above and beyond what someone might expect from their attorney. Experienced and cares! I would highly recommend Barton!
Very professional. I came and spoke to Barton Morris about my situation and my case. I asked him if he was willing to help me. He asked about the details and my background and history. He give me a positive confidence he can help me and my odds. His price is reasonable. He’s not one of those hole in the wall lawyers who treat you as a number. You are a human being with a personal life. You treats you as a valued client no matter how big or small the case.
I had Mike Norman as my lawyer for a case. I just wanted to come on here and thank him for doing his best for me. I am grateful during this stressful time. I’ve used Barton Morris as a lawyer about 11 years ago and he was awesome which is why we came back. I do recommend!
Extremely knowledgeable and very helpful when it comes to navigating the complicated nature of cannabis businesses in Michigan. I met with Barton where he answered all my questions about the pre-qualification application, and was prompt in answering subsequent questions through email after the meeting was completed. I certainly plan to continue utilize Barton’s knowledge in the future.
Just sitting here on my balcony. A bit chilly but sunny and beautiful. I am ever so grateful to have 100% freedom. Wasn’t sure I would ever meet this day. Hiring you(and your team) was the best decision I have ever made. You are a true master of your trade. As you sit with your beautiful family on Thanksgiving know that this year I am truly thankful of my freedom and the choice to hire Barton Morris. Thanks again. I will never forget what you have done for me.
