The laws concerning cultivation and manufacturing of a controlled substance are defined to not only include illegal growing of plants such as marijuana, but the manufacturing of illicit substances such as methamphetamine (crystal meth). More specifically, cultivating can be defined as growing, producing and possessing plants – such as cannabis seeds and marijuana plants – used to make illegal controlled substances. Manufacturing can be defined as producing illegal controlled substances that require chemicals and laboratory equipment to produce, such as cocaine, methamphetamine, LSD, and ecstasy or MDMA. When a person is charged with violation of a controlled substance statute, it is likely that he or she will be charged with more than one violation. A charge of cultivation could be added after a charge of possession was already given. It is important to have an attorney fighting for your rights and protecting you against illegal search and seizures that all too often accompany drug-related charges.
Contact the attorneys at Gaskins Bennett Birrell Schupp LLP as soon as possible to ensure that your Fourth Amendment and other rights are protected. Drug cultivation or manufacturing charges can also be brought against an individual who has the means for growing illegally, i.e., seeds, high power lights, even if there are no plants on the premises. Similarly, having some of the “precursor chemicals” needed to make meth can bring a manufacturing charge, even if there is no completed meth on the premises.
