Manufacturing Drugs in NJ
One of the most serious drug offenses in New Jersey is drug manufacturing. Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:35, it is unlawful for any person who, knowingly or not, maintains, operates, aids, or participates, in any way, in the manufacture of any dangerous, controlled, or counterfeit substance, or who is in control of such substance with the intent to manufacture.
Penalties for the manufacturing of illegal substances are the same as those for possession with intent to sell drugs. They are determined by the type and quantity of the illegal substance involved. Penalties for the manufacturing of an illegal substance may include, but are not limited to, a prison term of 10-20 years, probation, and fines up to $750,000. N.J.S.A. 2C:35 requires a minimum period of time to be served on a prison term, which is fixed at between one-third and one-half of the prison sentence. This means that a person is not eligible for parole until the minimum time has been served.
