Drug manufacturing in Florida usually leads felony charges with much higher penalties. Get a criminal defense attorney who understands the severity of your charges and can plan a strong legal defense.
Penalties for drug manufacturing depend largely on the classification of the substance, the amount, and where the manufacturing occurred.
Florida law allows for increased penalties under certain situations, such as someone renting a building, room, or structure to manufacture controlled substances. Possession of listed chemicals often used in manufacturing may also lead to an elevated charge and penalty.
Your criminal defense attorney may raise several defenses to a drug manufacturing charge to reduce criminal penalties. A criminal defense attorney may argue to reduce the drug manufacturing charge to simple possession, may cite a medical necessity for manufacturing the drug, or claim a Fourth Amendment violation in the seizure of the substances.
