About Newport Beach Drug Manufacturing Charges

Individuals charged with drug manufacturing could be facing misdemeanor or felony punishment. The severity of the penalties depends on the type of drug and amounts allegedly involved. Examples of drug manufacturing crimes include marijuana or cannabis cultivation, running a meth lab, producing crack, cocaine or heroin, drug labs for Ecstasy production and others. Some drugs, such as crack cocaine, carry penalties of automatic imprisonment and thousands of dollars in fines even for small amounts.

Another important aspect of drug manufacturing charges is the intent behind the alleged manufacturing. If it is believed that there was intent to sell, deal or otherwise distribute the drug produced, the charges can be significantly elevated as well as the accompanying penalties if a conviction is carried through. Speak with a drug manufacturing lawyer to find out where you stand in your particular case.
