Houston Criminal Defense Attorney

Drug Manufacturing Lawyer in Houston

Serious Charges Require a Serious Defense

If you have been charged with drug cultivation or manufacturing in Texas, it is imperative that you talk to a defense lawyer at The Law Offices of Jed Silverman immediately. Police and prosecutors are under intense pressure from communities to shut down marijuana grow houses, crystal meth lab operations, and other illegal drug manufacturing operations; in their haste to make arrests, innocent people are often falsely accused or caught up in illegal searches and seizures and other civil rights violations.

We help individuals charged with all types of drug manufacturing offenses, such as:

In general, an individual can be charged with drug manufacturing or cultivation if they participated in any stage of the process. These stages can include building, selling or setting up specialized equipment, possessing or selling precursor chemicals used to make the drug, or actually manufacturing the drug.

Jed Silverman is a proven trial attorney with successful outcomes in drug cultivation and manufacturing cases. We will work tenaciously to defend your rights. Call now!

Defenses to Drug Manufacturing Charges

The manufacture and cultivation of illegal drugs is aggressively prosecuted in Texas. These offenses are generally charged as felonies, and the consequences can include prison time and fines. However, there are a number of defenses that can be asserted in these cases, depending on the circumstances.

Many of the precursor chemicals that are used to manufacture illicit drugs also have legitimate, legal purposes. For example, pseudoephedrine is used to manufacture meth, but it is also a popular cold remedy. Other precursor chemicals can be owned legally, as long as you have the proper permit.

Similarly, the equipment used in manufacturing or cultivation can also have legitimate uses. Possession of grow lamps, for example, is not illegal. They are often used by gardeners to cultivate plants indoors. Possession of grow lamps plus marijuana seeds, however, could lead to a cultivation charge.

Challenging the constitutionality of the search that led to the discovery of evidence can lead to exclusion of that evidence and ultimately a dismissal of the charges. Incorrect identification of the suspect can also be a defense. This is why you shouldn't wait to discuss your case with a lawyer.
