Manufactured Controlled Substance in Michigan

Manufacturing drugs or controlled substances is against the law, unless you have a permit from the state, and even then only for very specific chemical compounds. If you’re caught growing marijuana or making methamphetamine, for example, you may face criminal charges and the harsh penalties that often accompany them. You should reach out to an attorney early in the process to ensure you do not wrongfully incriminate yourself. Police may use harsh investigation tactics in an attempt to prove you are guilty, regardless of the truth. The team at Grabel & Associates has been working in federal criminal defense for over 15 years, and understands how to successfully defend against wrongful accusations. If you need help navigating your case, pick up the phone and call our toll-free hotline today.

Understanding Manufacturing Drug Charges in Michigan

Manufacturing controlled substance charges can be broken down into different categories, including distributing materials, cultivating, and even simply possessing the materials that could be used in the creation of illegal drugs. If you’re involved in a criminal drug case, it’s important to understand the difference between charges.

Manufacturing: If you play any part in the process of creating an illegal drug, you could be charged with drug manufacturing. Mixing chemicals and growing ingredients are just a few examples of illegal activities. Even offering to help with one aspect of creating an illegal drug could result in a manufacturing charge.

Distributing Materials: Not only is it illegal to manufacture drugs, it’s also illegal to supply manufacturers with the materials they need. If you have probable cause to suspect that a chemical or any other component may be used in the creation of illegal drugs, you could face criminal charges.

Cultivation: Growing plants that are used in the production of a controlled substance is illegal. For example, you cannot produce marijuana plants or psychedelic mushrooms.

Possession: Even if you do not make any illegal drugs, simply possessing the materials, equipment or any other devices involved in manufacturing could result in a criminal charge.

The Penalties for Drug Manufacturing in Michigan

If you’re found guilty of manufacturing controlled substances, you could face significant penalties. Lengthy jail time and large fines are common punishments, both of which have the potential to negatively impact your future. Contacting a skilled defense attorney is the first step in battling back. Reach out to the Grabel & Associates team today to learn more about your legal rights and how we can help you defend them.

Prison time for drug manufacturing ranges from one to ten years, depending on the kind and amount of drugs involved. Jail time may be also be accompanied by a fine of up to $50,000. If the judge finds you guilty, you could also face probation. Probation typically lasts at least one year and consists of complying with the specific conditions of a probation officer. During your probation period, you will be subject to random drug testing and made to pay all fines and fees. If manufacturing drugs cause any damage, you may also have to play restitution. This money will cover the cost of any government clean up and the drug lab law enforcement used in your case.
