Criminal Possession of Methamphetamine Manufacturing Material in the First Degree: A Serious Offense

Criminal possession of methamphetamine manufacturing material in the first degree is a serious offense that can have lifelong consequences. If you are found to be in possession of materials required to manufacture methamphetamine with the intent to use them, you could face charges under New York Penal Law § 220.71. This offense is considered a Class E felony and carries a maximum prison sentence of up to four years, as well as a fine and five-year probation term.

Methamphetamine, also known as meth, speed, uppers, crystal meth, and ice is an extremely dangerous synthetic stimulant categorized as a Schedule II(d) controlled substance under New York law. The process of manufacturing this drug involves combining volatile ingredients precisely; mishandling or poorly assembling these ingredients can lead to an explosion.

An Example

Consider a homeowner whose residence was searched by police based on information received indicating its use as a methamphetamine laboratory. Although no Meth was found during this raid but ephedrine & pseudoephedrine were discovered – both known precursors for making Meth – if this is his/her first offense then he/she could face prosecution under first-degree criminal possession of methamphetamine manufacturing material, or possibly second-degree criminal possession of methamphetamine manufacturing material if this is their second time committing the crime. The prosecution will need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the homeowner intended to use these materials found in his/her possession for making Meth.
