Potential Defenses

In order to convict you for operating a drug factory, the state must prove:

  • You knowingly possessed drug paraphernalia
  • The possession of that paraphernalia took place in a drug factory
  • The purpose of the endeavor was to prepare a specific controlled substance

The state must prove each of these factors in order to successfully convict any individual for operating a drug factory. According to state laws, a drug “factory” is defined as any place used for the manufacturing, mixing, refining, processing, packaging, distributing, or holding of illegal substances. If you were arrested in a drug factory or you are under suspicion of drug charges, contact our attorneys immediately to begin building your case.
