Portage Michigan Meth Lab Arrest Lawyer
In Michigan, the difference between a drug possession charge and a more serious drug manufacturing charge can be the form the drug was in when police arrest you as well as other indicia of manufacturing. If you are arrested with a small amount of meth in your possession, you may face probation and a possible treatment program. If you are arrested with lab equipment and precursor chemicals such as ephedrine or pseudoephedrine, you may be facing more serious consequences such as a 20-year prison sentence.
At the law firm of Peter A. D' Angelo, PLC, we defend people charged with drug manufacturing in Portage, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and other communities throughout Western Michigan. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
What Is Drug Manufacturing?
In Michigan, it is a crime to possess certain chemicals and laboratory equipment for manufacturing illegal drugs such as meth and ecstasy (MDMA). It is also illegal in most circumstances to grow or possess marijuana plants. Even if the meth or marijuana you posses is for your personal use, you could be charged with drug manufacturing, a serious felony.
Is There a Defense to Drug Manufacturing Charges?
Sometimes the state and police overreach when charging people with drug manufacturing. Just because you possess over-the-counter drugs containing ephedrine or have just purchased lithium batteries does not necessarily mean that you are involved in the manufacturing of meth.
In certain circumstances there are steps our lawyers can take to improve your situation. Contact us as soon as you are able to discuss your case.
