Drug Manufacturing Attorney in Miami

Providing Skilled & Experienced Legal Defense to Our Clients

Creating illegal controlled substances is known as drug manufacturing, which is an extremely serious drug crime. If an individual is found with chemicals commonly used to manufacture drugs or if they were found creating or producing illegal narcotics, they may be charged with drug manufacturing. Drugs which are frequently manufactured in the United States include LSD, ecstasy, and methamphetamines.

In Florida State, manufacturing drugs is usually a felony offense, depending on the amount and type of drug associated. The main concerns to take into account will be where the alleged offense took place, if the individual has previous drug crime convictions on their criminal record, if the drugs were manufactured with the intent to sell, the amount of drug being manufactured, and the type of drug being manufactured. 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. If you are facing these charges, it is of the utmost importance that you hire an experienced drug manufacturing lawyer in Miami.

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.

Law enforcement agencies have improved their ability to identify marijuana grow houses by looking at utility bills and other sources of information. They also are using thermal imaging. Marijuana grow houses are becoming more and more common, which has led to more aggressive prosecution from state and federal authorities.
