Anyone who is accused of manufacturing drugs in New Hampshire could face some very hefty penalties.
This is because officials in New Hampshire are taking drug offenses extremely seriously. This is especially true now that the opioid epidemic is sweeping across the state and the nation.

According to state law _ which is outlined in the Controlled Drug Act, a manufacturer is defined as a “person who, by compounding, mixing, cultivating, growing or other process, produces or prepares controlled drugs, but shall not mean a pharmacist who compounds controlled drugs to be sold or dispensed on prescription.”
And, by state law, anyone who is charged with manufacturing typically carries the same punishment as those charged with drug distribution, sale or possession with the intent to sell. Typically, you’ll find a manufacturing charge associated with a marijuana grow house, for example, or a methamphetamine lab.
This can carry substantial prison sentences and/or fines and fees. So you will need to have a criminal defense attorney who understands the ins and outs of the state’s drug laws working for you.
You will need to build a strong defense case in order to have a chance to win your case in court. If your lawyer believes you have a strong case, he or she will probably recommend going before a judge and jury and presenting evidence that you were not guilty of this crime.
But if he or she feels they have a very rock solid case against you, the recommendation could be for you to plead guilty to a lesser charge and get a less harsh penalty.
You will need to work with your lawyer on this matter. Michael Anzalone will examine all the evidence and try to determine whether law enforcement officers violated any of your rights when they arrested you.
This could be a long and difficult process. And, along the way, your reputation may take a huge hit and you may suffer financial losses if you lose your job because of your arrest. And your family may be adversely affected.
This is not something that you should take lightly because you can rest assured that the prosecutors will work hard to build a solid case against you.
You can count on us to fight for your rights and work diligently to get the very best possible outcome for you.
