Types of Florida Drug Manufacturing Charges
The manufacturing of drugs is closely tied with drug cultivation and can lead to similar charges. Sentencing will be determined by the type of drug and how often you have been convicted. For example, charges 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. If you have been charged with a manufacturing offense, an experienced attorney can provide the representation needed to protect your rights and seek a favorable outcome. Our firm offers the aggressive legal help you need.
Other drug manufacturing charges include:
- Trafficking charges
- Possessing or renting a drug property

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, specific 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 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.
