Drug Manufacturing Lawyer in Long Beach
Understanding California Drug Laws
Not only are most drug crimes also federal offenses, but California is
the state with the most
drug crime cases. California law imposes serious penalties for drug-related offenses.
Drug manufacturing is always charged as a felony in California. According
to California code, a manufacturer of drugs is any person who prepares,
derives, compounds, or repackages any drug or device for producing drugs.
This can even entail merely offering or planning to manufacture drugs.
Being found with a tool or equipment used for drug production can be enough
for an arrest and charges.
Since drug manufacturing is a felony, potential conviction carries steep
penalties. It could lead to 3, 5, or 7 years in prison and up to $50,000
in fines. Certain circumstances can increase these penalties. Multiple
charges may come with an additional charge of drug possession, since a
prosecutor often will also have to prove possession of drugs before they
can reveal that the individual was also manufacturing them. Not only would
being a convicted felon hamper your future, but being convicted of a drug
crime in and of itself can make employment and housing difficult to obtain.
