As the popular TV show Breaking Bad showed its viewers, there can be many reasons why an average person would seek to begin producing illegal drugs. Maybe you needed the money, felt pressured to do it, or were threatened into complying. Whatever the reason, the production of illegal substances is considered a felony with severe impacts for your future.
Every day many North Carolinians are accused of drug crimes. Such crimes could range from mere possession of a small quantity of drugs to federal offenses including drug trafficking, drug distribution, drug conspiracies and drug manufacturing. Drug charges can involve various types of illegal substances, including marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy and illegally obtained prescription medications.
One serious type of drug allegation that is sometimes leveled against individuals here in North Carolina is an accusation of manufacturing illegal drugs. Drugs or drug manufacturing materials that police found and seized often play a major role in drug manufacturing cases. It can be important for drug manufacturing defendants to have an experienced criminal defense attorney carefully look over every part of the chain of events that led to police discovering such physical evidence, as police misconduct in any part of this chain can lead to the evidence potentially being inadmissible.
