Drug Manufacture or Cultivation

State and federal agencies have conducted numerous stings in Upstate New York to bust up alleged meth labs and marijuana grow houses. These stings are commonly based on law enforcement surveillance or tips from citizens.

I carefully examine what triggered the investigation and how police or federal agents conducted the raid or arrest. Was there probable cause for a search warrant? Were you read your rights? Did police find drugs or are they relying on scales, baggies, precursor chemicals and equipment as evidence of drug manufacturing?

Under the Combat Methamphetamine Act (CMEA) of 2005, possessing pseudoephedrine (the active ingredient in cold and allergy medicines) can be grounds for charges of making meth. Investigators can also seize cash, firearms, equipment, vehicles or a home if those assets are connected to drug activity.
