Drug Cultivation & Manufacturing

Drug cultivation and manufacturing is defined two ways:

  • growing, producing and possessing plants and other naturally occurring elements – such as cannabis seeds and marijuana plants – used to make illegal controlled substances
  • producing illegal controlled substances that require chemicals and laboratory equipment to produce, such as cocaine, methamphetamine, LSD and ecstasy or MDMA

Federal and state drug cultivation laws depend on the type of drug and amount produced. If you are facing drug cultivation or manufacturing charges, speak with a criminal defense attorney in your area. Simply call us toll-free at 877-445-1059 or fill out the no-obligation form below.

Drug Cultivation & Manufacturing Charges

Charges for drug cultivation and manufacturing can be made even if no drugs were found during the execution of a lawful warrant. Simply having the means to make certain drugs, such as certain “precursor chemicals”, can result in drug manufacturing charges.

Likewise, simply having the peripheral elements needed to grow marijuana, such as cannabis seeds, high-power lamps or marijuana plant remnants, can lead to charges of drug cultivation.
