College and graduate school can be one of the most stressful times in a person's life. From sacrificing sleep to study, and from the emotions involved in deciding what you want to do with your future, it can be overwhelming and draining. Additionally, stress can be aggravated if you are struggling with depression and anxiety disorders, bipolar illnesses, and attention deficit disorders. Some students turn to drugs or alcohol to ease the stress.
Some students also turn to selling drugs to gain extra income while they are in college. Even high-achieving students who are serious about their studies can be caught into the temptation to get involved with drugs. Whether you have been charged with possession or sale of drugs, Michigan law allows young people who have not been previously convicted of a drug offense to redeem themselves and possibly avoid the charge going on their public record, to preserve their ability to seek the employment they desire in the future.
