Salt Lake City Drug Manufacturing Lawyer

Utah Drug Cultivation Attorney

“Drug manufacturing” refers to creating drugs in ways other than growing it, such as producing controlled substances like ecstasy, LSD, cocaine and methamphetamine or “meth”. Drug cultivation and drug manufacturing are often used interchangeably and because the objective is usually distribution, it is normally a felony crime that carries extremely severe penalties based on the type of drug and the amount produced. In reality, however, the act of planting, cultivating, harvesting or processing any drug is called drug cultivation. The charge of drug cultivation usually relates to marijuana.

The attorneys at Greg Smith and Associates are experienced criminal defense lawyers who have been protecting the rights of individuals charged with criminal offenses for more than 32 cumulative years. If you are charged with drug manufacturing, we can help.

Serious Criminal Charges

The U.S. government does not recognize the legal growth or possession of marijuana for medical purposes and considers it a crime. The state-by-state allowance of marijuana used for medicinal or therapeutic purposes is still against federal law.

The federal government is aggressive in prosecuting people they charge with possession, distribution and manufacturing of drugs. Sentencing guidelines are also very serious. Simply possessing a small amount of a controlled substance can result in a lengthy prison sentence; being convicted of manufacturing and distributing drugs almost guarantees an extended prison term.

You Need an Experienced, Aggressive Lawyer

Drug arrests and convictions are relatively easy to achieve and get federal officials a lot of publicity, particularly the ones that result in prison time for offenders. That is why if you are facing drug charges, you need an attorney who is highly effective, knowledgeable and aggressive in protecting your rights and defending your freedom.
