Illegal drug manufacturing includes any act of manufacturing, producing, or cultivating a controlled substance or narcotic such as marijuana, cocaine, or methamphetamine. If law enforcement seizes your meth lab, marijuana grow house, or any other location where drugs are produced or manufactured, you are very likely facing several years of prison time and expensive fines, if convicted. It is absolutely critical when facing drug manufacturing charges to contact an experienced, skilled and aggressive drug crime defense attorney immediately to help you fight the drug manufacturing or distribution charges against you.
Consequences of Drug Manufacturing
Under Maryland drug laws, drug manufacturing may involve the actual lab production or cultivation of illegal drugs such as heroin, crack cocaine, cannabis, methamphetamine, or other drugs. However, you may also face drug manufacturing charges if you have been found in possession of the chemicals/ingredients used for the manufacture of these drugs. Such ingredients may include ephedrine or pseudo ephedrine or such other chemicals.
The experienced drug crime defense attorneys at Alpert Schreyer Poe handle all types of drug manufacturing charges including:
- Operating a meth lab
- Cultivating heroin, cocaine, or other drugs
- Operating a marijuana grow house
- Possession or transportation of chemicals used for drug manufacturing
- Any other involvement in the production or manufacture of illegal drugs
The evidence collected by police officials in a search and seizure of a drug manufacturing operation is often the most significant piece of evidence that prosecution has in drug manufacturing and distribution cases. Prosecutors may also use the weight of the drugs including weight of any roots, seeds, capsules, or chemicals used to make the drugs, to establish a basis for serious drug charges. The greater the quantity of drugs confiscated, the more serious the drug charges. The level of the offense and the potential consequences will hinge on the type and quantity of drugs seized.
