Tips on Drug Charges in Texas

Knowing important details about drug offenses in Texas could have a major impact on the final results of your case. You cannot be expected to navigate these laws, which are typically quite complex. However, we can provide a general overview of points worth considering:  

  • Possession: Texas has some very strict laws associated with drug possession. If you have been charged with drug possession or possession with the intent to deliver, you may have violated the Texas Controlled Substances Act.
  • Controlled Substance: Selling a controlled substance illegally may incur greater charges than illegal possession of a controlled substance.  
  • Cultivation: Manufacturing and cultivation of drugs could result in relatively minimal jail time or a lengthy prison sentence.
  • Telephone: When a telephone is used to make a drug sale, a defendant may face additional charges. This could mean more jail time. Additionally, laws regarding cell phone use are continually evolving and must be examined by a knowledgeable attorney.
  • Weapon: Using a weapon while drug trafficking could lead to much stiffer penalties. You would likely be held on separate charges, and you could face more jail or prison time as a result.
