    Bill Summary

    This bill specifies where venue for the prosecution of the offense of promotion of methamphetamine manufacture would be proper.

    Under present law, it is a Class D felony for a person to promote methamphetamine manufacture. A person promotes methamphetamine manufacture who:
    (1) Sells, purchases, acquires, or delivers any chemical, drug, ingredient, or apparatus that can be used to produce methamphetamine, knowing that it will be used to produce methamphetamine, or with reckless disregard of its intended use;
    (2) Purchases or possesses more than nine grams of an immediate methamphetamine precursor with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine or deliver the precursor to another person whom they know intends to manufacture methamphetamine, or with reckless disregard of the person's intent; or
    (3) Permits a person to use any structure or real property that the defendant owns or has control of, knowing that the person intends to use the structure to manufacture methamphetamine, or with reckless disregard of the person's intent.

    This bill specifies that if the chemical, drug, ingredient, or apparatus to produce methamphetamine is purchased in violation of (1) in more than one county, then venue for purposes of prosecution of this offense would be proper in any county in which such an item was purchased. Similarly, if immediate methamphetamine precursors are purchased in violation of (2) in more than one county, venue would be proper in any county in which a precursor was purchased.
