California Manufacturing a Controlled Substance Charges and Penalties
What is Manufacturing a Controlled Substance?
Any person who manufactures, compounds, converts, produces, derives, processes, or prepares, either directly or indirectly, by chemical extraction or independently by means of chemical synthesis, is guilty of manufacturing a controlled substance.
WHAT IS A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE?
A controlled substance is a drug whose purpose, or manufacturing, is regulated by the United States. There are different levels of drugs, which range from Schedule one to five.
Examples of Schedule one drugs include opiates, opium, hallucinogenic substances such as salts, cannabis, psilocybin, heroine, valium, or cocaine.
Examples of Schedule five drugs typically include the number of drugs that are in possession. 200 milligrams of codeine per 100 milliliters or per 100 grams.
Methamphetamine is considered one of the more severe controlled substances and, therefore, can have more severe penalties.
What is the Punishment?
The punishment for manufacturing a controlled substance can vary depending on the specifics of where the manufacturing was taking place.
When manufacturing a controlled substance is occurring in a structure where a person under the age of 16 resides, it is considered an aggravating factor when the court is considering sentencing.
When manufacturing the controlled substance of methamphetamine within 300 feet of an occupied residence or any other structure where another person was present at the time, it is considered an aggravating factor when the court is considering sentencing.
All other aspects of manufacturing a controlled substance can be punishable by imprisonment for 3 to 7 years, a fine of not more than $50,000.00, or both.
As the sentence can vary so widely depending on the factors of the crime, it is important to have knowledgeable counsel who can advocate for you for the lowest sentence.
