Did you know that you could be charged with drug manufacturing even if you only allegedly sold some chemicals or equipment? Wisconsin prosecutors are starting to look past the simple drug possession charges that are so commonly associated with drugs of abuse such as marijuana, cocaine and heroin. The War on Drugs continues in Wisconsin with a growing number of defendants who are facing drug trafficking and manufacturing charges, even if they are only tangentially involved in the process. You do not have to be victimized by this type of overzealous prosecution. With the right team of attorneys, you can vastly improve the likelihood of a favorable outcome in your own drug manufacturing case.
To be convicted of a drug manufacturing charge, defendants generally need to be accused of both drug possession and intent to manufacture. For example, a defendant may be accused of possession of marijuana, and authorities may have found what they believe to be marijuana seeds and growing equipment. The possession of seeds alone — or of the equipment alone — may not be indicative of an intent to distribute, but both together would be seen as a more serious violation.
Our team of qualified attorneys provides legal support for individuals who are accused of drug possession, drug trafficking and drug manufacturing. We do not only represent those accused of marijuana-related crimes; our clients have experienced charges related to heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamine and a variety of other substances. We understand the drug laws in Wisconsin, and we are ready to fight on your behalf.
Unlike other states, which have relaxed their laws related to possession of marijuana, Wisconsin is still aggressively prosecuting drug crimes. Know your rights and legal responsibilities after a drug charge by consulting an attorney. You deserve protection from these overzealous prosecutors who simply want another “win” against a victim accused of a non-violent drug crime.
