We proudly offer personalized service to provide you with the legal knowledge, skills, and resources that have earned us outstanding ratings from our peers.
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.
