Cultivation of drugs in NebraskaCultivation of drugs is akin to manufacturing them. Drug cultivation laws are usually classified under or alongside drug manufacturing laws and involve growing, producing, or processing plants with naturally occurring substances used in the production of illegal drugs. Some examples of plants that are tagged as controlled substances include cannabis, opium, cocaine and other types of intoxicants or hallucinogenic plants.

This is because cultivation of drugs is frequently tied to an intent to distribute the drugs or substances, ignoring the paradox that possession of a drug does not always mean that the person is intending to distribute the substances.Cultivation PenaltiesWhere simple possession of drugs in the first offense of low drug weight can sometimes result in misdemeanor charges, culpable by fine and a prison sentence of lower than one year, possession or cultivation with the intent to distribute is charged as a felony. The terms of the sentence are set by the amount and kind of drug cultivated, but supposing that you are caught cultivating weed in Nebraska, you can expect to pay a fine of $10,000 and spend a maximum of 20 years in prison. Selling within 1,000 feet of a school, within 100 feet of a youth center, public pool, video arcade, or while possessing a firearm, can increase fines exponentially.

The prosecution have to prove that: 1) the suspect had the materials on his/her person during the time of arrest; 2) said person intended to cultivate illegal drugs without legal authorization. Thus, if the law enforcement search a person's home and find the necessary tools and utensils-- opium seeds, electric growing lights, plants in large quantities-- it may be strong enough evidence to charge with the cultivation drugs with the intent to distribute. This is a good point to challenge the actions on grounds of legal rights violations, where incorrect conclusions could have been reasoned indirect evidence implicating people who are innocent through indirect involvement.Learn more about: Federal Drug Crimes Cultivation Legal representative in NebraskaUpon accepting a client, the Stockmann Law team of dedicated individuals will vigorously prepare the case and explore every avenue to prevent you from imprisonment.
