Miami Manufacturing Methamphetamine Lawyer
Also Protecting Clients throughout Fort Lauderdale
Methamphetamine is classified as a Schedule II controlled substance under both the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and the Florida Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act. In recent years, Florida has seen an increase in attempts to manufacture methamphetamine using common over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and chemicals in homes or transportable settings that are commonly referred to as “meth labs.” If you were arrested or are under investigation for manufacturing methamphetamine, avoid making any kind of statement to authorities without first calling The Hoffman Firm.
