When Facing Drug Manufacturing Or Delivery Charges, You Need The Best Defense Possible

Making and selling controlled substances is against the law, and penalties can be severe. Whether you're a student who sells drugs to a couple of friends or a full-time professional vendor, your case can go much better for you if you are represented by an experienced attorney. Kalamazoo lawyer Gary Gabry has more than 30 years of experience working with drug charges and other criminal cases.

Manufacturing Vs. Delivery

Drug manufacturing and delivery are two separate crimes that are both related to the act of "dealing" drugs.

  • Manufacturing a drug, as the word implies, is defined by Michigan state law as "producing or processing a controlled substance." Cultivating marijuana plants is a form of manufacture, as is performing the chemistry required to produce methamphetamine. In fact, meth production is the most common reason a defendant is charged with manufacturing an illegal drug.
  • Delivery occurs, according to Michigan state law, when the defendant has "transferred or attempted to transfer (a controlled substance) to another person, knowing that it was (a controlled substance) and intending to transfer it to that person."

What To Do If You've Been Charged

If you or a loved one has been arrested with an illegal drug on your person, it can be difficult to contest the charges. But G. M. Gabry Law will help you prepare a strong defense, based on Gary's years of insight as an elected prosecutor before he went into criminal defense. For example, a defendant might get reduced charges if he can successfully argue that he manufactures drugs only for personal use.
