Chicago Ecstasy Possession Lawyer
Facing ecstasy charges? We can help!
Ecstasy, also known as Adam, X, E, XTC and MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine), is a potent synthetic drug that possesses stimulant and mild hallucinogenic properties. A person accused of the possession, manufacturing, sale or trafficking of ecstasy may face very serious consequences, including fines and incarceration.
What makes ecstasy charges so devastating is that buyers and users are often teenagers and college students from middle and upper-class families introduced to the harmless-sounding drug at parties and dance clubs. Due to this, not only can users experience the negative physical consequences of ecstasy, which can include brain damage and even death, but young people convicted of possession or other drug crimes may face ruined futures, along with serious fines and imprisonment. If you or your child has been arrested or charged with any crime involving ecstasy, you must act quickly.

Defense Attorney for Ecstasy Charges in the Chicago Area
In Illinois, the penalties for ecstasy distribution are the same as penalties for the distribution of heroin and cocaine. This means that those charged with ecstasy distribution can receive varying degrees of penalties and sentences, including heavy fines and incarceration for up to 20 years. Ignorance of the law is no defense, and prosecutors don't care if those possessing the drugs actually intended to distribute ecstasy or not. If charged with distribution, suspects face serious felony drug charges in which even first-time offenders can be incarcerated for up to five years.
