Manufacturing nearly any type of drug leads to significant penalties
Tennessee law dictates that it is a criminal offense to knowingly manufacture, deliver, sell or possess a controlled substance. The penalties are vastly different for a person arrested for simply possessing an ounce of marijuana and a person charged with manufacturing marijuana. Penalties for manufacturing marijuana depend on the amount or numbers of plants involved and include fines of:
- $5,000 for not less than ½ ounce and less than 10 pounds
- $50,000 in fines for more 10 pounds but less than 70 pounds or 10-19 marijuana plants
- $100,000 in fines for 20-99 marijuana plants, regardless of weight
- $200,000 in fines for more than 70 pounds but less than 200 pounds or 100-499 marijuana plants
- $500,000 in fines for more than 300 pounds or 500 or more plants
