Have you been charged with drug manufacturing in Los Angeles? Are you currently being investigated for drug manufacturing? If you can answer yes to either of these questions you need to speak with an experienced drug defense lawyer right away. Drug manufacturing is a very serious crime, one that can easily land you behind bars and strip you of your rights. Although the outcome of a case can never be guaranteed, working with a knowledgeable and well-practiced Los Angeles drug manufacturing attorney will greatly increase your chances of resolving your case successfully.
Drug manufacturing refers to creating illegal drugs, narcotics, or controlled substances by mixing certain chemicals together. Methamphetamine, or meth, is arguably the most commonly manufactured drug, but heroin, cocaine, LSD, and MDMA (Ecstasy) are also manufactured on a regular basis as well. Both prosecutors and law enforcement officers take drug manufacturing very seriously, not only because it’s illegal to create such drugs, but also because the use of chemicals during the manufacturing process increases the risk of fire or explosion. If fact, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency estimates that more than 200 meth lab fires or explosions occur in California each year.
If you’re ultimately convicted of manufacturing, you will be sentenced to incarceration in state or federal prison, hefty fines, probation, mandatory drug rehab or treatment, community service, deportation (if you’re not a U.S. citizen), and a mark on your criminal record. The best way to avoid such legal penalties, as well as the impact a drug manufacturing conviction will take your personal life and reputation, is by speaking with an experienced Los Angeles drug manufacturing defense lawyer you can trust.
