Phoenix Manufacturing Drugs Attorney

In Arizona, state and federal laws prohibit the illegal manufacturing of drugs. The Federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA) of 1970 regulates the manufacture, importation, possession, use and distribution of drugs and controlled substances in the U.S. Briefly, there are five levels or classes of drugs that range from extremely dangerous and potent, to least dangerous and potent. If a defendant is charged with manufacturing heroin – which falls within the most dangerous category – there will be a more severe criminal charge and punishment than a “less dangerous” drug. At the state level, drugs are regulated by Title 13, Criminal Code, Arizona Revised Statutes (ARS). There are numerous statutes within Title 13 that prohibits the manufacturing of drugs. If you were arrested for illegally manufacturing drugs, you are facing extreme consequences, including years in prison. Attorney Jeremy Geigle represents clients who have been arrested for illegally manufacturing drugs.

Arizona’s Laws Against Manufacturing Drugs:

Arizona has numerous statutes prohibiting drug manufacturing, including:

  • Possession, use, administration, acquisition, sale, manufacture or transportation of prescription-only drugs, ARS 13-3406
  • Possession, use, administration, acquisition, sale, manufacture or transportation of dangerous drugs, ARS 13-3407
  • Possession, use, administration, acquisition, sale, manufacture or transportation of narcotic drugs, ARS 13-3408

Arizona has some of the country’s more lenient laws for smaller amounts of drugs for personal use; however, penalties are severe for manufacturing drugs for sale. In addition to laws that prohibit the manufacturing of drugs, it is illegal to possess certain chemicals that are used to create the drugs; possession of chemicals and equipment carry specific sentences. The prosecution will attempt to prove that the presence of these “precursor” chemicals indicates that drugs were to be manufactured. Task forces commonly keep tabs on stores that sell methamphetamine-related products in their attempt to find and bust meth labs.

Arizona Drug Manufacturing Penalties:

Offenders convicted for manufacturing drugs will commonly face severe penalties:

  • First time offender:
  • Prison: 10 year sentence is not uncommon; may range from 5 to 15 years
  • Second time offender:
  • Prison: 20 years is not uncommon
  • Parole is not available
