Find a Utah Drug Production Defense Lawyer
Do You Need a Utah Criminal Defense Attorney for Drug Production Charges?
Utah drug production laws include drug manufacturing and cultivation. Many people hear on the local news about the latest raid of a meth lab being run out of some house out in the middle of nowhere but Utah’s drug production laws extend to all illegal drugs no matter where they are produced, whether in an apartment, a warehouse, a backyard garden or a basement.
Even growing one marijuana plant in your own home is considered drug production and can result in a conviction of a third degree felony for the first offense (maximum $5,000 fine and 5 years in prison) and a second degree felony for the second offense (maximum $10,000 fine and 15 years in prison).
We have represented many individuals who have produced everything from marijuana to shrooms and meth. These cases generally commence through the issue of a search warrant by a magistrate. Law enforcement has to provide probable cause in the form of an affidavit to give the judge enough factual evidence to make a determination that there is probable cause to search the premises. Once a warrant is issued, law enforcement is able to enter the home or business and seize all illegal substances and contraband. A Utah drug production defense lawyer from Salcido Law Firm knows exactly what to look for in challenging such warrants.
