WHAT IS DRUG MANUFACTURING?

Drug manufacturing can mean running a drug laboratory, conspiring with others to manufacture drugs, growing marijuana, or running a meth lab.

Depending on the type of drug you are charged with manufacturing or cultivating and the amount of the drug that was seized, will determine the amount of fines you will have to pay and the amount of prison time you have to endure, if convicted.

It is important to remember that a drug charge is not a conviction. You have to be proven guilty to be convicted and face the penalties.

At Shrager Defense Attorneys, we understand that good people make mistakes and that many times innocent people are accused under false pretenses and misunderstandings, as well as illegal search and seizures.

We are compassionate Pittsburgh Criminal Lawyers who will fight relentlessly for your rights and your freedom and your property. We understand that you and your families are under a lot of anxiety and stress and we are here to help alleviate that stress and help you gain back control over your future.

SENTENCING & PENALTIES FOR MANUFACTURING DRUGS IN PA

Both Pennsylvania and the U.S. Federal Government have minimum sentencing requirements for a drug manufacturing conviction. You may also face Federal Charges for manufacturing drugs, in addition to being tried by Pennsylvania.

Talking with an experienced drug crime attorney like David J. Shrager is the best way to know what types of penalties you face, given your circumstances. However, below are some general guidelines for sentencing.

MARIJUANA:

Cultivation/Growing Marijuana – Minimum Sentencing*

  • First offense, 10-21 plants: Felony, one year minimum in prison and a maximum $5,000 fine.
  • First offense, 22-51 plants: Felony, three years minimum in prison and a maximum $15,000 fine.

  • Over 50 grams: Felony, minimum five years in prison for a first offense.

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION:

Prescription Medication Manufacturing – Minimum Sentencing*

The penalties for illegally manufacturing prescription medication can be just as harsh or more so than manufacturing illegal drugs.

Each type of drug falls under a “Schedule” under Pennsylvania’s Controlled Substances, Drugs, Device, and Cosmetic Act.

These are the minimum penalties for the different types of prescription meds by schedule:

  • Schedule V drugs: Misdemeanor, up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.
  • Schedule IV drugs: Up to three years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
  • Schedule I, II, or III drugs: Up to five years in prison and a $15,000 fine

*Penalties can be greater if this is your second or subsequent offense, or if you are found with drugs in a school zone, selling drugs to a minor or carrying an illegal weapon. For manufacturing heroin, fines can run up to $250,000 and up to 15 years in prison. For manufacturing drugs like PCP or cocaine, fines can be as high as $100,000 and up to 10 years in prison.

FORFEITURE OF PROPERTY

If your home or car is searched for controlled substances the government will often try to seize and resell your property where the alleged drug crime occurred.
