I would like to know if they can actually charge me with precursors and intent to manufacture. . . . Is this even possible. . . .
You said, "they gave me the same charges as her." If, in fact, they did this, then the answer to these questions seems rather obvious, doesn't it?
Arresting and charging you requires probable cause, not absolute certainty regarding guilt, and the police and prosecutor don't have to accept your claims of ignorance as true.
You need to speak with a local criminal defense attorney to discuss your defense strategy. If charges get dropped or you are acquitted, then you can discuss the possibility of a civil claim.

No one here can tell you whether to take the plea or go to trial. Your best advice on that comes from your lawyer, who knows the evidence against you and what juries in your area are likely to do with that evidence if you go to trial. If the folks in your county tend to be prejudiced against Hispanics, then that will make it that much harder to win the case if it goes to trial. The lawyer may believe that you are better off taking a sure deal on the table rather than rolling the dice on an uncertain outcome at trial. That doesn’t make your lawyer a bad lawyer, and I’d not recommend firing a lawyer solely because of that. You have the right to reject any plea deal and go to trial. So you have to decide whether you are comfortable letting a jury of folks in your “neck of the woods” decide this with the evidence the state has or take the deal the state offers instead.

My ? was not if i should get a lawyer but what are the chances of me beating a case like this.
Ok. If you think it is productive to quibble about what you asked previously, here's exactly what you asked previously: "Can somebody please tell me that they really can't do this unless i lay down and allow it[?]" And, while not phrased as a question, the following sentence is the functional equivalent: "I would like to know if they can actually charge me with precursors and intent to manufacture when i just met this girl and it so happened the day we hook up the police raid her property." I answered those questions.
As far as your new question about your "chances of . . . beating a case like this," I haven't the foggiest idea. First of all, I don't know what evidence exists or what sort of arguments the prosecutor might make. Second, you've basically said that the Constitution and rules of law -- which I would otherwise use to answer your question -- are meaningless where you live. If, in fact, you're correct, it sounds like you have no chance of beating the charge. Of course, I doubt you're correct, but I have no doubt you'll continue to believe what you want.
