One of The Possible Drug / Narcotic Offenses a Person Can Be Charged With in Poughkeepsie, NY and Surrounding Areas.
Drug manufacturing is also a very serious crime if it is committed illegally. Cultivating or manufacturing illegal drugs, for instance, including marijuana and ethamphetamine, is illegal under both state and federal laws. In the case of marijuana manufacturing, there are limited exceptions in certain states. Under criminal law, drug manufacturing occurs when the defendant is involved in any step of the drug production process. Illicit production or manufacturing of drugs is charged as a felony; penalties range from steep fines and probation to prison time. Keep in mind that you may also be charged with this crime if you sell certain chemicals, specialized equipment and/or simply offer to help produce illegal drugs.
At the same time, the mere possession of drug manufacturing materials is not enough to bring charges of drug manufacturing. Let us say that a box of cold medicine is found in the back seat of your car. Other materials used to cook “meth” must also be present for an officer to bring charges against you.
