In Florida State, manufacturing drugs is usually a felony offense, depending on the amount and drug-associated. For example, an individual with previous drug crime convictions on their criminal record manufactured the drugs with the intent to sell and the type of drug manufacturing.

Therefore, the main concerns to consider will be where the alleged offense occurred. 

If a drug crime transpires within 1,000 feet of a church or school, the penalties will be higher, with the possibility of a minimum mandatory three-year prison sentence.

Therefore, if you face these charges, it is of the utmost importance to hire an experienced Miami drug manufacturing lawyer.

These are penalties for manufacturing specific controlled substances, such as:

  • Drug manufacturing of cocaine, codeine, morphine, heroin, opium, or methadone is a second-degree felony offense, and it is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and fines up to $10,000.
  • Drug manufacturing of methamphetamine or peyote is a third-degree felony, and it is punishable by up to five years in prison.
