In Virginia, drugs are viewed as a very serious issue, with drug charges leading to the potential for harsh penalties. One such drug that is growing in popularity and prominence is methamphetamine, also known as "meth." This drug can be manufactured by using various items that can be purchased relatively easily, and a lab can be built and concealed. With methamphetamine, those who are confronted with an arrest and charged will need to be prepared for what they are going to face.

A 33-year-old man is facing numerous charges related to methamphetamine manufacturing and sale. Law enforcement commenced with an investigation that resulted in a seizure of the alleged meth lab and made the arrest. With a search warrant, Virginia State Police conducted a search and found what they claim was methamphetamine and cooking instruments that are commonly used to make the drug. The man was charged with drug possession, intent to distribute and other charges.

The penalties for drug charges can vary on numerous factors such as whether it was simply possessed or was for distribution, how much was found, where it was sold and how many times the person has been placed under arrest and convicted. There can be jail time, hefty fines and other punishments. For some, it might be possible to receive treatment in lieu of penalties. Knowing what consequences hinge on the situation and having legal protection are two of the most important factors as the case moves forward.

In this case, a man was investigated and eventually charged with methamphetamine possession, manufacturing and distribution. Given the nature of the drug and the penalties surrounding it, people in situations such as this may want seek to legal help.
