In Oregon, you cannot manufacture drugs unless you have the proper licensure, and with controlled substances such as heroin, methamphetamine, or LSD, there is no circumstance in which they can be manufactured legally. However, if you are caught manufacturing or delivering controlled substances near a school, you could be sentenced to prison and be required to pay expensive fines.
Laws on Unlawful Manufacture or Delivery Near Schools
Under Oregon law, it is unlawful for anyone to manufacture or deliver a Schedule I, II, or III controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a public or private elementary, secondary, or career school that minors primarily attend.
Penalties for Unlawful Manufacture or Delivery Near Schools
If you are arrested for the unlawful manufacturing or delivery of controlled substances within 1,000 feet of a school, you could be charged with a Class A felony. The maximum sentence for a Class A felony is 20 years in prison and a fine up to $375,000. Plus, the felony will be on your record for life, which means that when employers and landlords perform background checks, they will see your conviction. This will make it difficult for you to get a good job or rent an apartment.
