Madison WI Manufacturing a Controlled Substance Lawyer Attorney
The manufacture of a controlled substance is a crime in Wisconsin. Under Wisconsin drug laws, manufacture does not require proof of an elaborate machine, it just means to produce, or prepare or to make the controlled substance. A charge of manufacturing a controlled substance also requires proof that the substance in question is a controlled substance under the drug schedules. Finally, the drug charge of manufacturing a controlled substance requires proof that the defendant knew or believed that the substance was a controlled substance. This does not mean that the defendant needs to know the technical name of the substance or the precise chemical compounds in the substance. If the defendant only knows the street name for the drug and the drug in question is a controlled substance, that is enough.
