Drug Cultivation

What is Drug Cultivation?

The Drug Cultivation is defined as the manufacturing of illegal drugs and controlled substances; while a variety of Cultivation activity is not only authorized with regard to its respective legality, but also necessary in order to provide medical and physiological treatment for a variety of maladies suffered upon the human condition.

Cultivation vs. Possession

Although the cultivation of drugs may not involve the individual suspect possessing drugs in its final form, merely the possession or sale of the ingredients and key components used in order to manufacture Drugs may be sufficient for apprehension of the guilty party. For example, an individual in possession of Marijuana Seeds – although not in the form of the adult Cannabis plant – will typically be charged with the intent to undertake the illegal cultivation of Marijuana.

Organic vs. Synthetic Cultivation

The vast expanse of drugs available within society will typically conform to 1 of 2 classifications – organic drugs or synthetic drugs; while organic drugs such as Marijuana, Heroin, Cocaine, and Hallucinogenic Mushrooms are considered to be naturally-occurring relating to their purest form, synthetic drugs require cultivation through the transfer of chemicals – drugs requiring synthetic cultivation include methamphetamine, the bulk of prescription drugs, and Crack-Cocaine.
