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. You need to defend your freedoms with an aggressive Long Beach criminal defense attorney.
