Drug manufacturing is a serious crime

There are many types of drug crimes, all of which should be taken extremely serious. If you are charged with any of these, either on the state or federal level, it could have a big impact on your life.

In order for a person to be convicted of manufacturing an illicit drug, prosecutors have the responsibility of proving both possession and the intent to manufacture. With this in mind, the right defense strategy is extremely important.

Take for example a scenario in which a person is found with marijuana seeds. While this may mean the person has the intent to cultivate in the future, without other evidence, such as grow lamps, it will be difficult to prove.

Generally speaking, federal and state drug manufacturing laws are pretty much the same. That being said, some drugs, such as marijuana, are the exception to the rule.

With federal level, cultivation of 50 or fewer plants carries a punishment of up to five years in prison. Furthermore, the cultivation of 1,000 or more plants could land a person in prison for life.

Due to the fact that drug manufacturing is a serious problem that continues to grow, it's imperative for you to understand the ins and outs of this crime as well as your legal rights.

Police are cracking down on drug manufacturing, meaning they often overstep when arresting somebody for this crime. If you find yourself in this position, you don't have any time to waste. Instead, you should understand what happened and then create a defense strategy that can help you avoid the most serious punishment.
