Your Texas Defense Team, Serving the Community Since 1997

Texas has some of the toughest drug laws of all states. Even a small amount of marijuana in your possession can lead to a drug charge. While other states have legalized the use of this substance, Texas has not. It also takes very seriously drug crimes involving all other controlled substances.

At Cañas & Flores, you can work with a team of legal professionals who have been fighting for clients throughout the local area since 1997.

What are the Types of Drug Crimes?

The different types of drug crimes and drug charges include:

  • Simple Possession
  • Possession with Intent to Sell or Distribute
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
  • Drug Cultivation or Manufacture
  • Drug Trafficking.

Drugs can include not only dangerous street drugs such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, fentanyl, and more but also unauthorized prescription drugs such as OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax, and others. Texas categorizes these drugs into four classes, each with its own set of penalties. Marijuana has its own penalties outside of these groups.

Penalties for Drug Crimes

These penalties for drug crimes include:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Heavy fines
  • A permanent criminal record, which can make you ineligible for certain career choices, educational opportunities, and more
  • The loss of your driving privileges
  • Extended probation

Misdemeanor vs Felony Drug Charges

Charges for a drug crime are based on the type and quantity of drug, any previous criminal history, whether minors were involved, whether the crime resulted in serious injury or death to another, and the penalty group. For example possession of any amount of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, or amphetamine will always be charged as a felony but possession of marijuana under a certain amount is charged as a misdemeanor.
