Legal Question in Criminal Law in Michigan

In Michigan If I'm arrested on a drug charge but released before I am charged but later receive a letter by mail telling me to turn myself in so that charges can be filed if I do not turn myself in does the statute of limitations apply?

The statute of limitations refers to the amount of time that they have to bring charges against you. It starts from the date of the offense and ends when charges are filed. As long as charges are filed within that time period, that will end or toll the statute of limitations.
