Penalties for Drug Manufacturing in Pennsylvania
Drug manufacturing in Pennsylvania is against the law. Lately, the State has amped up efforts to combat the crime of drug manufacturing. Charges for this crime are governed by the State’s Controlled Substances, Drugs, Device and Cosmetic Act. This Act divides drugs into five different schedules, with distinct penalties for each.
For example, if you are charged with drug manufacturing meth, then you could face to up to 10 years in prison with up to a $100,000 fine. With respect to marijuana, if you grow up to nine plants it is a misdemeanor. The cultivation of 10 to 21 plants is a felony punishable by a mandatory minimum sentence of one year in prison and a $5,000 fine, while growing 22 or more plants can result in a mandatory three-year sentence and $15,000 fine. With the range and severity fines and jail time, you do not want to take any chances. Hiring a skilled and bold drug crimes lawyer is your best bet to mitigate charges.
