Experienced Defense Lawyers for Drug Manufacturing Charges

Drug manufacturing is regulated in the state of North Carolina by general statute 90–95(a)(1). According to the law, anyone can be found guilty of drug manufacturing if the district attorney can prove beyond a reasonable doubt the person knowingly manufactured a controlled substance. It can include any method, whether direct or indirect, of producing, preparing, packaging, labeling, or processing a controlled substance. Unlike many other drug charges, this offense doesn’t rely on an amount of a controlled substance to determine penalties. The law punishes any processes done to controlled substances of any kind and any weight.

Drug manufacturing is a felony drug offense. If you are found guilty of manufacturing a Schedule I or II drugs, you will be convicted of a Class H felony. Punishments for a Class H felony include 39 months in jail. However, manufacturing methamphetamine (Schedule II) is a Class C felony and can lead to 231 months in jail. Schedule III, IV, V, or VI drugs will result in a Class I felony, which can result in 24 months in jail. However, if it can be proven these drugs were being manipulated for personal use, rather than distribution or sale, the penalty will be significantly smaller.
