Trafficking Ecstasy and Distribution Attorneys in Michigan


Trafficking ecstasy and distribution conspiracies are aggressively investigated and prosecuted in federal court. Ecstasy is a very popular drug among young adults, especially during music dance parties. The active ingredient is MDMA but other drugs are often sold under the same name including BZP, MDA, and MDEA. If you’re facing any ecstasy-related charges, speak with a drug crimes attorney immediately.

BZP is a substance that’s often used in ecstasy as a substitute for MDMA. BZP is legal in Canada, therefore, it’s more frequently found in the Eastern District of Michigan. The substance is unlawful under federal law but isn’t as heavily penalized. The penalty for 500 pills of BZP is the equivalent of 100 pills of MDMA (21 months – base offense level 16).

It’s sold in Canada legally under names like Frenzy or Nemesis. Since Michigan shares an international border with Canada, BZP and trafficking ecstasy are much more frequently investigated and prosecuted in this state.

It’s a cheaper alternative and the high from BZP is more like amphetamine than MDMA, but it’s still sold as ecstasy by dealers looking to make more money. Its effectiveness is 10 to 20 percent less potent. Federal sentencing guidelines penalize BZP less harshly than MDMA.

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.
