Texas Law Regarding Drug Possession

The Texas Controlled Substances Act designates four categories of drugs, each with its own set of penalties. Marijuana has its own classification and penalties outside of the other four main categories.

The categories include:

  • Narcotics, such as opium, hydrocodone, oxycodone, and fentanyl
  • Depressants, such as heroin, opiates, and Xanax
  • Stimulants, such as cocaine and methamphetamine
  • Hallucinogens, such as LSD and PCP

How you are charged in any drug possession arrest will depend on the type of drug, how much was found in your possession, how it was stored or concealed, whether drug paraphernalia was found, and your prior convictions, if any.

Penalties can range from a Class B misdemeanor for marijuana possession of 2 ounces or less up to the highest penalty for drug possession of 99 years or life in prison and/or a fine of up to $250,000. Aggravating factors such as whether minors were involved in the offense will add to your penalties.
