Have You Been Arrested on a Rhode Island Criminal Narcotics Manufacturing Charge?

Life imprisonment is a strong possibility. However, it’s also possible to reduce or dismiss charges with the help of a skilled lawyer, such as John R. Grasso – one of the best legal minds in the State of Rhode Island.

If you’ve been arrested for Narcotics Manufacturing, contact the Island law offices as soon as possible.

Definition of Narcotics Manufacturing:

As the name suggests, Rhode Island Code Chapter 21-28 defines Narcotics Manufacturing as producing a narcotics, whether chemically, or through cultivation of certain plants such as cocoa leaves.

Narcotics are differentiated from other forms of illegal substances, due to their chemical composition, and their effects on the body’s natural functions. A narcotic, under the Uniform Controlled Substances Act, could include opium, opiates, poppy straw, cocoa leaves, Ecgonine, cocaine, or a combination of two or more.

Law enforcement will sometimes partner with Federal agencies to uncover such crimes. However, if an illegal search and seizure took place, this can be used as a defense in court. Other legal defenses include that the individual in question simply possessed a narcotic for personal use, rather than cultivating or manufacturing the substance for sale and redistribution.

John R. Grasso offers first time consultations at no cost . As a former police investigator, he will examine the details of the case to come up with the best possible defense.

  • Up to $100,000 in fines and/or
  • Up to 30 years in prison

Narcotics Manufacturing (1-5 kilograms) is punishable by:
