Penalties for Manufacturing & Trafficking Drugs in Reno
If you are charged with manufacture or cultivation of drugs, you risk forfeiture of your house, along with prison time. In many cases, the police will charge you with trafficking because the penalties for the crime are higher and probation is not allowed.
Penalties for trafficking of Schedule I and Schedule II drugs range between one year to life in prison and fines of up to $250,000, depending on how much of the drug was found in your possession. The amounts required for a trafficking charge for these drugs are anywhere between 4 grams and 400 grams, depending on the drug in question.
- Schedule I and Schedule II drugs include:
Penalties for trafficking of marijuana are less severe, ranging from one year to 15 years in prison and fines of up to $50,000. The amounts for a trafficking charge range between one ounce and more than 10,000 pounds.
