MANUFACTURING OF DRUGS
In Florida, manufacturing controlled substances is typically a felony offense, depending on the type and amount of drug involved.
The penalties will vary based upon the classification of the controlled substance, the amount, and where the offense occurred.
If a drug crime occurs within 1,000 feet of a school or church, the penalties will be enhanced, with the possibility of a minimum 3-year prison term.
