Illegal Drug Manufacturing Penalties Can Be Severe

If you or someone close to you has been charged with actively cultivating marijuana, manufacturing methamphetamine or another narcotic, the criminal penalties will be extremely severe.

These kinds of crimes can be charged on the state or federal level and can be taken to trial with months of investigation by law enforcement. A person accused of one of these crimes may be prosecuted based on information from alleged informants, which may or may not be credible, and evidence that may have been obtained illegally.

Because of the many, complex constitutional issues involved in these cases, it is critical to be represented by an attorney who can expertly investigate all details and either work toward a dismissal or a successful plea to mitigate consequences.
