Fort Worth Drug Manufacturing Defense Lawyers
Protection from Criminal Convictions in Arlington & Tarrant County
Texas is particularly strict when it comes to laws and punishments regarding drug crimes. If you have been charged with or arrested for drug manufacturing, it should not be taken lightly. Even if you are only facing a misdemeanor charge, any drug manufacturing conviction can completely strip you of your basic rights, including the right to vote or even the right to own or possess a firearm. Because Texas is a big proponent of the War on Drugs, you could also be facing federal charges on top of the state charges.
You need an aggressive and dedicated Fort Worth drug manufacturing defense attorney on your side. At Goza & Carreras, Attorneys at Law, our team includes a former prosecutor who is board certified in criminal defense by the Texas Board of Legal Certification. This gives us insight into how the prosecution might approach the case against you and allows us to prepare a strong defense in order to protect your rights.
What Is Drug Manufacturing?
The Texas Controlled Substances Act § 481.002 defines drug manufacturing as any preparation, compounding, production, conversion, processing, or propagation of a controlled substance through any natural and/or chemical synthesis. This definition also includes any relabeling, packaging, or repackaging of a controlled substance. It’s important to note that this section does not include marijuana, which production covers.
Drug manufacturing is only legal if it is performed by a licensed practitioner who administers or dispenses the substance for research, teaching, or chemical analysis purposes with no intent to distribute.
Defending Yourself against the Charges
While addiction is not a feasible defense against drug manufacturing, there are many plausible defenses our attorneys can use.
Examples of these defenses include, but are not limited to:
- You are cultivating a drug for personal medical use after a medical doctor prescribed you it
- You are manufacturing medical marijuana
- There was an insufficient amount to charge you with drug manufacturing
- There was no intent to deliver the substance to others
- The substance was never intended for human consumption
