Oakland County Cocaine Lawyer
Facing charges for cocaine?
Cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant which has the ability to produce
a euphoric feeling that lasts from 15 minutes to 1 hour. When a person
consumes cocaine in one of its forms, either snorting, injecting, or smoking
(crack cocaine) they temporarily gain a feeling of strength or confidence.
Cocaine is considered to be very dangerous, and listed in schedule 2 of
the federal Controlled Substances Act. Even the smallest amount of cocaine
found in your possession could lead to a jail sentence with a large monetary
fine. If you have been charged with any type of cocaine offense, you need

Cocaine Penalties: Possession, Possession with Intent, Trafficking
Cocaine is believed to be the second most popular illegal recreational
drug in our country. It is second only to
marijuana. Cocaine possession is a felony, and the penalties imposed upon an offender
will be based upon the quantity of the substance alleged to have been
in your possession or under your control, as well as whether it is believed
that you were involved in distribution of the drug into the community.
If you are caught with 50 grams you can be put in prison for 4 years and
pay a $25,000 fine. If you were in possession of 50 to 440 grams of cocaine
you can go to prison for up to 20 years and pay a fine of $250,000. If there are
weapons charges associated with your arrest, the situation is far more serious, and there
will be enhanced penalties imposed upon you if you are convicted as well
as mandatory prison time.
