Types of Drug Crimes in Texas

Drug crimes in Texas range from minor offenses to serious felonies. Regardless of the charge, it is important to remember that you have rights and that you are innocent until proven guilty. Our team can help you understand your legal options and work to build a strong defense on your behalf.

Drug Possession

In Texas, drug possession is a serious crime that can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. The type of charge will depend on the type of drug and the amount of the drug you are found to be in possession of. 

For example, if you are found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana, you may be charged with a misdemeanor. However, if you are found to be in possession of a large amount of a more dangerous drug, such as methamphetamine, you may be charged with a felony.

In Texas, the following drugs are classified as controlled substances:

  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • PCP
  • LSD
  • MDMA
  • Opioids
  • Prescription medications
  • Other dangerous drugs

Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation

It is illegal to cultivate or manufacture drugs in Texas. This includes growing marijuana plants, cooking methamphetamine, and creating other controlled substances. The penalties for drug manufacturing and cultivation will depend on the type of drug and the amount of the drug you are found to be making or growing.

Drug Distribution & Trafficking

It is illegal to distribute, sell, or traffic drugs in Texas. If you are found to be in possession of a large amount of drugs, you could be charged with drug trafficking. If you are found to be distributing drugs near a school, playground, or youth center, you could also face enhanced penalties. 

Prescription Fraud

It is illegal to obtain prescription drugs by fraudulent means in Texas. This includes forging prescriptions, altering the number of pills on a prescription, and calling in a fake prescription. If you are found guilty of prescription fraud, you could be facing serious consequences.

Drug Paraphernalia

Drug paraphernalia includes any equipment, product, or material that is used to plant, propagate, cultivate, grow, harvest, manufacture, compound, convert, produce, process, prepare, test, analyze, pack, repack, store, contain, conceal, inject, ingest, inhale, or otherwise introduce a controlled substance into the human body. 

It is illegal to possess or distribute drug paraphernalia in Texas. If you are found guilty of possessing drug paraphernalia, you could be facing a Class C misdemeanor, which is punishable by fines up to $500. Possessing drug paraphernalia with the intent to distribute is a Class A misdemeanor.

Defending Against Drug Charges

Being charged with a drug crime can be incredibly overwhelming. However, being charged with a drug crime does not mean that you will be convicted of a drug crime. Our team can help you build a strong defense and fight for a favorable outcome on your behalf.

When building a defense, we will carefully review the details of your case, including how the drugs were found, where the drugs were found, and the amount of drugs that were found. We will also look for any evidence of misconduct or illegal search and seizure. If your rights were violated in any way, we will work to get the charges against you reduced or even dismissed.

Some common defenses against drug charges include:

  • Illegal search and seizure
  • Entrapment
  • Unlawful arrest
  • Crime lab analysis errors
  • Missing evidence
  • Drug was not yours
  • Drug was planted
  • Drugs were found in a vehicle you did not own
  • You did not know the drugs were in your possession
  • You had a valid prescription for the drugs
