In recent years, Louisiana has greatly increased its efforts to prosecute anyone connected to the manufacturing, sale, distribution or possession of methamphetamines (meth). Specifically, the state's efforts target alleged meth labs (clandestine labs) and individuals purchasing products that are a part of the recipe for making meth.
Accusations of a meth-related criminal offense are serious, and you face a lengthy prison sentence, fines and a criminal record that will haunt you for many years. As such, it is vital to turn to an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as you have been arrested or believe that you are the target of a police investigation.

Methamphetamine In Louisiana
Louisiana state laws control the sale of pseudoephedrine (PSE), a common ingredient in cough syrup, allergy medication and other medicine, because PSE is used in the manufacturing of meth. As such, sales and purchases of PSE are closely scrutinized by law enforcement officials. Police typically view someone buying three, four or even more units of medicine containing PSE as suspicious activity that is indicative of the presence of a clandestine meth lab.
Common substances that contain PSE and are involved in meth lab charges include:
- Mucinex D
Whether these drugs came from Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, retail stores with pharmacies such as Wal-Mart, or any other pharmacy, I can help you fight charges that link these drugs to use in a meth lab.
