Drug Cultivation and Manufacturing

Contact Our Skilled Noblesville Drug Crimes Attorneys

The manufacture or cultivation of controlled dangerous substances (CDS) in Indiana is heavily regulated and illegitimately performing these processes is prosecuted under state law. The legal codes surrounding drug manufacturing or cultivation are very broadly-encompassing and can even allow charges to be pressed if you are found to be in possession of substances used to create illicit drugs.

Drug cultivation and manufacturing crimes are often sentenced based on the amount of CDS produced and the type of substance, which is classified in a list called a schedule; you can find more information about schedules by clicking here. Drug manufacturing is a “wobbler” charge in Indiana, as the severity of your penalties as well as the classification of the crime depends on the schedule of the substance produced. For example, the manufacture of heroin, a Schedule I substance, is considered a felony and carries stricter penalties than the manufacture of codeine, a Schedule V substance.

Marijuana Cultivation in Indiana

Among these marijuana, along with hash oil, hashish, salvia, and synthetic cannabinoids, are prosecuted slightly differently from most other drugs, and they are not placed into the traditional drug schedule. However, the cultivation of marijuana is also a “wobbler” charge as well, and can vary between a Class A misdemeanor charge and a Class D felony, depending on the amount manufactured.

The amount of marijuana found directly impacts the penalties you are facing, including:

  • Anything up to 30 grams of a marijuana based substance is classified as a class A misdemeanor - punishable by up to 1 year & up to $5k in fines (multiple convictions can result in a level 6 felony - punishable by up to 2.5 years & up to $10k in fines)
  • Anything between to 30 grams & 10 pounds of a marijuana based substance is classified as a level 6 felony - punishable by up to 2.5 years & up to $10k in fines (multiple convictions can result in a level 5 felony - punishable by up to 6 years & up to $10k in fines)
  • Anything more than 10 pounds of a marijuana based substance is classified as a level 5 felony - punishable by up to 6 years & up to $10k in fines
