You are considered a drug manufacturer if you grow and create illegal drugs with the intention of distributing it. The prosecutors must be able to prove your intention to manufacture and distribute illegal drugs before you can be convicted.
If you’ve been charged with drug manufacturing, you will need to settle fines and custody. In this case, it is crucial to get yourself out of prison immediately so you can prepare for your court hearing with the help of a lawyer.
Examples of Illegally Manufactured Drugs:
- Marijuana (Pot)
- Prescription Drugs
What are Schedule I Drugs?

However, there are types of drugs like the schedule I drugs that are not used for medicinal purposes because of the potential danger it can bring. People who use such drugs can be addicted to it and abuse its use. The severity of the charge depends on the type of drug used. In some states like Ohio, creating meth is a felony crime, and the convicted should serve at least three years of prison time.
Can I be Arrested for Growing Marijuana in my Home?
In some states, the use of marijuana as a medical tool is welcomed. However, there are particular states such as Ohio where you will be charged if caught growing marijuana in your property. You can be charged with felony and time in prison.
How Much is Bail for Manufacturing Drugs?
There are certain factors to be considered for setting the bail amount for drug manufacturing. Bail amounts are not the same across all charges. Bail will depend on the type of drug manufactured, the cost and the number of offenses the person has committed. If you get caught with the possession of a weed plant weighing less than 100g, a bond may be unnecessary, but you will be fine for a misdemeanor that typically costs $150. However, if you are caught with 40 plants, you can expect for a much higher bail amount.
How do Bail Bonds Work?
A bail bond is offered by a bond company that is being taken care of by a bail bondsman. The judge is typically the one who sets the bail. If the arrested person cannot provide the amount, he then goes to a bail guarantor who can handle the bail. In most cases, the convicted should pay the bond company 10% of the total bail amount.
Why Are Bail Bonds Set?
Bail is an amount of money set by the court to ensure that the defendant will return to the court during his or her court hearing. Once the bond is posted, then the defendant can go home and prepare for his future court proceedings. If the defendant fails to return or show up in court, the bond company will be the one to pay the bail amount.
Bail can be paid in cash, however, most often than not, they are set at a high amount, that defendants cannot pay them on their own, so they go to a bail bond company.
