Missouri Drug Manufacturing
In Missouri a person commits the offense of manufacturing a controlled substance if he/she (1) knowingly manufactures, produced or grows a controlled substance; (2) attempts to manufacture, produce or grow a controlled substance; or (3) knowingly possesses a controlled substance with the intent to manufacture, produce or grow any amount of controlled substance.
A charge of drug manufacturing will be charged as a Felony, and the circumstance surrounding your case will determine the class of felony that will be charged.
Generally it will be charged as a Class C Felony for substances other than marijuana. Manufacturing marijuana or synthetic cannabinoid of 35 grams or less will be charged as a Class E Felony. If you are within 2,000 feet of a school, it’s a Class B Felony.
Pleading guilty may seem like the easiest option but it may NOT be your best option. Hiring an experience criminal defense attorney can help evaluate your case and decide what options you may have. In some cases, you may be able to get the charges thrown out all together or have your charges reduced.
