Defending Against Drug Manufacturing Charges in Texas

Drug crimes such as possession or sale are harshly punished in the state of Texas. Another serious offense involves manufacturing a controlled substance, which includes the production, preparation, compounding, conversion, or processing of a controlled substance. The penalties resulting from the manufacture of an illegal drug vary depending on the type of illegal substance in question, as well as the amount that the person has manufactured.

What Are The Penalties For Drug Manufacturing in Texas?

Manufacture of a drug found under Penalty Group 3 or 4 can range from a jail felony to a life sentence, with a fine of up to $100,000. On the other hand, manufacturing a drug under Penalty Group 1-which includes meth labs-can incur up to life in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

One of the reasons why drug manufacturing is so severely punished is because it is a very dangerous act. Even one small mistake can result in a fire or explosion, and prolonged inhalation of the fumes and gases created through manufacturing a controlled substance can damage the health of those involved.

Texas Health & Safety Code § 481.1122 provides aggravated penalties for the manufacture of a substance in penalty group 1 in the presence of a child, particularly for methamphetamine labs. The minimum term of imprisonment is increased to as many as 15-20 years. Retain experienced drug crime defense right away if you've been arrested for manufacturing a controlled substance.
