Drug crimes are a growing concern across the United States, and Arizona is no exception. There are numerous types of drug charges that a person could be faced with, including possession and drug trafficking. Another such offense is drug manufacturing which, depending on the controlled substance being manufactured, could land a person in prison for many years. Penalties for the manufacture of illegal substances are as follows:

  • Prescription drugs (A.R.S. §13-3406) - Class 1 misdemeanor, six months in prison
  • Dangerous drugs (A.R.S. §13-3407) - Class 2 felony, 4 to 10 years in prison, and a $1,000 fine or three times the value of the drugs, whichever is higher
  • Narcotic drugs (A.R.S. §13-3408) - Class 2 felony, 4 to 10 years in prison, and a $2,000 fine or three times the value of the drugs, whichever is higher


Fighting charges of drug manufacturing is most successful when the accused individual hires a Phoenix drug crime lawyer with extensive experience in the area of drug crime defense.
