In carrying out its war on drugs, the government is particularly interested in cutting off the supply of drugs by targeting the sources of these substances — namely, the drug labs and the people who operate them. Investigators use a number of methods to track down a manufacturer and gather evidence, including using informants, wiretaps, surveillance, and other tactics.
Anyone who has been charged with producing drugs needs the most resourceful drug crime lawyer available.
