Drug Manufacturing Charges
An Aggressive Defense in San Diego
Making drugs and/or controlled substances including cocaine, methamphetamine, and LSD is always considered a felony offense under California laws. Being accused of manufacturing drugs can turn your life upside down in the blink of an eye. Many of the manufacturing cases in California involve methamphetamine labs, which are highly dangerous, but any type of drug manufacturing related activity may be enough to warrant an accusation. Those suspected of involvement will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Everybody has a right to a fair trial, and we will make sure your case is carefully and fairly evaluated.
What is Drug Manufacturing?
You do not have to actually be in a lab or producing illegal substances to be charged with drug manufacturing. In fact, you could be charged with manufacturing for possessing certain ingredients or the finished product. If there is enough evidence that you have access to the tools and materials needed to manufacture controlled substances or if the activity happened on your property, you could face a felony drug charge. Growing marijuana illegally could also be considered a drug manufacturing activity.
Depending on the type of drug, criminal history, and other circumstances surrounding a case, you could be facing several years in prison and steep fines if convicted of drug manufacturing. Extenuating factors like proximity to minors and producing illicit substances in certain locations can increase the maximum penalties. After a conviction, individuals often have trouble finding work and safe housing arrangements. For many involved in illegal substance activities, the cycle is vicious, and being convicted may not be a reason for individuals to give up the lifestyle.
