According to Tennessee drug laws, it is illegal to manufacture, sell, distribute or possess illegal substances. Fines and punishments vary depending on the type of drug offense that you have been accused of and increase dramatically if the offense was committed in a school zone. Under Tennessee drug laws, quantity plays a large role in determining sentencing, fines and other punishments for drug offenders. For this reason, it is a good idea to consult a reputable attorney to discuss the consequences of the charges you face as they will vary depending on the unique aspects of your situation.

Tennessee drug laws are especially harsh on meth offenders. Meth is short for methamphetamine, an addictive stimulant that is harmful to the central nervous system. Since the ingredients needed to manufacture meth are common to many over-the-counter allergy and cold medications, Tennessee meth laws have restricted the availability of the ingredients and equipment needed to process meth; in fact, possession of more than 20 grams of pseudoephedrine (a key ingredient in over-the-counter cold and allergy remedies used to make meth) is considered evidence of an intent to manufacture meth. This strict regulation can cause complex legal issues for those unaware of the law when they innocently break the law.
Severe penalties are in place for Tennessee meth offenders. While the severity of the penalty depends on the quantity of meth involved in the offense, Tennessee meth offenders face 3-30 years of incarceration and fines that may be as high as $100,000.
