Drug Related Crimes: Distribution

Can I be Charged With a Distribution Charge if I did not Receive Money for the Transfer of the Drug? What Does Deliver Mean When it Comes to Delivering a Controlled Substance?

Delivery means the transferring or the attempt to transfer a controlled substance to another person with the knowledge that it was a controlled substance and the persons had the intention to transfer it to the other person.

One will be charged with distribution or delivering a controlled substance if the Defendant delivered a controlled substance, Defendant knew that they were delivering a controlled substance and the controlled substance that the Defendant delivered weighted over the specific amount as it relates to the controlled substance under Michigan law.

Punishment for distribution or delivery of a controlled substance varies depending on the classification of the controlled substance. For example: For an unlawful delivery of a controlled substance classified in schedules I or II that is a narcotic drug or a drug one could be facing a felony punishable by imprisonment for life or any term of years, a fine of not more than $1,000,00, or both.

An example of distribution would be: Someone goes to a party and receives a text message from a friend. The friend asks if they can bring drugs to them. The person at the party tells them that they can. We later find out that the party on the other end of the phone is a DEA agent. This is a classic case of distribution.
