Tough Laws Have Teeth

Michigan has one of the nation’s toughest laws on “minor in possession.” A ruling by the Michigan Supreme Court in 2002 established that evidence of being “in possession” of alcohol could include evidence of alcohol in the system, including blood alcohol content.

A 2004 updating of the “minor in possession” statute in Michigan includes provisions for judges to send offenders to jail when they have had a prior MIP conviction, have failed to complete treatment or community service mandated by the courts, or have failed to pay required fines.
