Drug Manufacturing and Cultivation
Drug Manufacturing Lawyer
In the state of Arizona, there are many different laws prohibiting the illegal use, distribution and possession of narcotics, dangerous drugs and prescription-only drugs. When someone is caught breaking these laws, they face charges that could lead to heavy punishment, including time in prison.
Charges of drug manufacturing usually apply when a defendant is found in possession of materials and chemicals that are commonly used for creating illegal drugs. Further charges may ensue when proof is found that these drugs are being made with the intent to sell. In some situations, a person can be arrested, charged and convicted of drug manufacturing just for having the equipment regardless if actual drugs are found.

Drug Manufacturing/Sales Crimes – Possible Punishment
The punishment for drug manufacturing/sales crimes in Arizona can range based on what was found at the time of the arrest, including the amount of manufactured drugs found and any equipment or chemicals that were used. Both charges and sentences for drug manufacturing/sales crimes become much more serious when actual dangerous drugs or narcotics are found. This constitutes a felony charge and sometimes results in mandatory prison time.
If a defendant is convicted of manufacturing prescription drugs, it is considered a class 1 misdemeanor and can be punishable by probation or up to 6 months in jail. Additional fines are also included in the sentence.
For more serious crimes, like when a person is found guilty of possessing the manufacturing equipment for a dangerous drug or narcotic, a felony charge will be assessed. This could potentially lead to a prison sentence as high as 8.75 years.
If the defendant has previous drug-related convictions on their record, the punishment is even more serious and can sometimes double the amount of time a person will spend in prison.
