Have you been accused of drug cultivation? If you are facing criminal charges or an investigation by local, state or federal law enforcement, it is important to involve a Greenville drug crime attorney who can begin working to defend your rights immediately. You may be in danger of facing serious penalties.

What is Drug Cultivation?

Cultivation is a drug crime that involves planting, growing, nurturing or harvesting marijuana or cannabis seedlings or plants. Marijuana may be cultivated in various locations. In North Carolina, it is often grown outside in federal forest lands in the lower Appalachians as well as in the swamps along the Atlantic coast. However, indoor cultivation is also prevalent and these may be located throughout the state. An indoor grow house may be specially designed to cultivate marijuana, sometimes with high-tech hydroponic marijuana gardens. Hydroponic cultivation involves growing the plants without soil, instead growing them in a special nutrient solution.

Greenville Marijuana Cultivation Attorney

A defendant convicted of marijuana cultivation in Greenville may face serious penalties. This offense is a Class H felony. Penalties will vary depending on the amount of marijuana involved. If a significant amount of marijuana is found, the defendant may face drug trafficking charges. Cultivation of 10 to 49 pounds of marijuana, for example, may result in a defendant facing 25 to 30 months in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. These penalties increase dramatically with larger amounts of marijuana.

If you are to have the opportunity of avoiding maximum criminal penalties and other consequences of a marijuana cultivation conviction, you need skilled legal counsel. At Burch Law Office, we represent defendants throughout Eastern North Carolina from our offices in Greenville, including in Pitt, Greene, Beaufort, Martin and Lenoir Counties.
