Drug Manufacturing

People often assume that drug manufacturing charges are specific to drugs which can be made from combining chemicals, like LSD or crystal meth, but these charges can also result from the cultivation of marijuana. Actually, charges can be made against any person involved in any step of the illicit drug production process. This means if you purchase ingredients, like pseudoephedrine used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine, you can be charged. North Carolina has established an undesirable reputation for methamphetamine manufacturing.

If you or someone you care for has been arrest, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. The accused should not speak to the authorities with an attorney present.

Crystal Meth Manufacturing in North Carolina

The federal government passed the Methamphetamine Epidemic Act in 2005 establishing more severe punishments for those convicted of related charges. At that point, those in buying, selling or possessing precursors also faced those punishments. A precursor is an ingredient used to manufacture drugs.

Methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth, is an extremely addictive stimulant drug that can be made with ingredients which are fairly easy to get. A simple Internet search can provide detailed directions--even videos if that is your media of preference.

According to N.C. Gen Stat. § 90-90, methamphetamine is classified as a Schedule II control substance because it has a high potential for abuse, has accepted medical uses with severe restrictions, and abuse can lead to psychic or physical dependence. This is the second most dangerous classification for illegal drugs. In addition to methamphetamine, it includes opium, oxycodone, and cocaine.
