Drug Manufacturing in Columbus, Georgia

pills that are a part of drug manufacturing

Some controlled substances are grown; others are made through chemical processes. But all drugs have one thing in common: they all must be cultivated or manufactured before they can be used. A drug manufacturing conviction can carry a heavy sentence, so make sure you hire a competent defense attorney.

In Georgia and throughout the country, it is a felony to cultivate or produce drugs. This includes growing the plants necessary for marijuana, heroin or cocaine, or synthetically producing methamphetamine.
