Types of Florida Drug Manufacturing Charges

The manufacturing of drugs is closely tied with the cultivation of drugs, and can lead to similar charges. Sentencing for an offense will be determined by the type of drug manufactured and how many times you have been convicted of the crime. Even with a lesser offense, a number of related charges can increase the sentencing you may face.

Penalties for drug manufacturing and cultivation crimes in Florida depend on the substance a person is being accused of producing. For example, the charges a person can face for marijuana cultivation can vary, but they are usually a third-degree felony.

Penalties for cultivating or possessing marijuana in Florida include:

  • 25 to 1,999 pounds or 300+ plants: 3 years in prison and a $25,000 fine

  • 2,000 or 9,999 pounds or 2,000+ plants: 7 years in prison and a $50,000 fine

  • 10,000+ pounds or 10,000+ plants: 15 years in prison and a $200,000 fine

When combined, these charges can easily result in a first degree felony that leads to harsh sentencing. If you have been charged with a manufacturing offenses, an experienced attorney can provide the representation needed to protect your rights and seek a favorable outcome.

Drug Cultivation Defense in Tampa, Florida

When you are charged with cultivation of drugs, such as the cultivation of marijuana, you are at risk for a third-degree felony. Under this charge alone, you could face thousands of dollars in fines and up to five years in prison. Increased charges and penalties will follow an offense within 1,000 feet of a school or similar facilities.

Fortunately, certain opportunities may allow you to combat your charges.

For example, any unlawful search and seizure can constitute a violation of your rights:

  • Searching your property without a warrant
  • Obtaining evidence without reasonable cause
  • Searches performed without legitimate consent

If an officer has violated your rights, the evidence obtained through such a search will be rendered useless in court. As a result, it will be easier to fight your charges and seek a favorable result. With a seasoned drug crime defense lawyer in Tampa, you may be able to dismiss or reduce the toughest charges.
