Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation Crimes

Securing a Drug Crime Defense Attorney in Paulding County

If you are under investigation or have been charged with the cultivation or manufacture of illegal controlled substances, it is important to understand the law and the penalties you could receive if convicted, so that you know what you are up against in fighting the charges.

Make no mistake, manufacturing is a serious criminal offense, whether you were caught growing a small amount of marijuana for your own private medicinal use or if you were engaged in manufacturing large quantities of crystal meth for sales or trafficking.

Cultivation & Manufacturing Laws in Georgia

Drug cultivation and manufacturing carry similar consequences—the only real difference between the two is the type of drug that is involved. Drug cultivation relates to drugs which are grown, while drug manufacturing relates to drugs that are created by chemical processes and other means. Manufacturing Schedule I or II drugs like crystal meth are considered much more serious than manufacturing Schedule IV or V drugs. However, the difference in severity is relative; regardless of the type of drug involved, a manufacturing charge in Georgia comes with extremely devastating consequences if you are convicted.

Penalties for Manufacturing & Cultivation Convictions

Under Georgia Code § 16-13-30 (2012), manufacturing and cultivation are considered felony offenses. In most cases, a conviction could carry a prison sentence. For Schedule I and II charges, this could be as long as 35 years in prison. A Schedule V conviction could be 5 years, or even more.

Marijuana is an especially complex issue for many individuals. While simple marijuana possession charges could result in misdemeanor charges, marijuana cultivation is a felony offense. Many people are unaware of the difference in severity for these crimes.

No matter what drug is related to the manufacturing or cultivation charges, the mark of a felony on your criminal record can ruin future employment and financial opportunities and ruin your chances at a promising career. The first step to a fair resolution is securing the legal guidance of our skilled drug crime lawyers in Paulding County.

Your Dedicated Defense Against the Drug Charge

There is also increasing attention paid to crystal meth labs in the area. In fact, the 2010 Analysis lists methamphetamine production as being one of the two "principle drug threats to the region." Contact a Paulding County drug crime attorney at Henrickson & Sereebutra as early as possible in the case to learn more about the consequences you face and how an attorney from our firm can fight to clear your name.
