Drug Manufacturing

If you have been arrested for the ‘intent to manufacture narcotics’ then you could be facing a long term jail sentence and hefty fines. This is a very heavy conviction to deal with which is why it is so critical that you seek legal advice from an experienced Minneapolis drug crime attorney as soon as you are arrested or accused of any drug possession crime.

Drug abuse is considered a social problem and because of this, all drug crimes are tried is a separate Minnesota court and follow a different set of rules.

Manufacturing with Intent

Some of the cases we handle include:

  • Growing/cultivating marijuana
  • Use of a drug lab
  • Possession of certain chemical agents
  • Possession of manufacturing devices

There are a number of different defense tactics you can take to walk away from a drug crime conviction. For example, if the drug lab or chemical agents were discovered during an illegal search and seizure that violated your right to privacy, then the evidence collected cannot be used against you. Our firm will assess your case, gather evidence, consult with experts and determine the best defense tactics to take for your situation.


Your penalty will depend of a number of factors including how much drugs you had in your possession, what manufacturing devices you were caught with, what was the intent of having this drug and what drug(s) were you caught with. Your criminal record may also play a role in your punishment. If you have been convicted of any drug crime in the past, then you could be looking at more severe penalties this time around. Penalties for drug crimes include fines and fees, community service, drug rehabilitation in some instances and jail time.
