Texas Drug Possession Laws
Texas has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to drug use and possession.

You could receive a Class A, B or C misdemeanor for smaller amounts of
drugs, but this may be escalated to a felony if larger amounts are found.
Examples of misdemeanor charges and punishments:
Class A: $4,000 fine and 1 year in jail
Class B: $2,000 fine and 180 days in jail
Class C: $500 fine
Texas Drug "Groups" & Penalties
Texas law classifies illegal substances into different groups. These groups
are primarily used to determine the illegality of a substance. For instance,
Group 1 substances are considered the most dangerous and carry the most
severe penalties. Group 4 substances, however, commonly carry lesser penalties.
Some common examples of substances in each drug group include:
Group 1: Heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine
Group 1A: LSD
Group 2: PCP, mescaline, ecstasy
Group 3: Xanax, Valium, Ritalin, and other prescription drugs
Group 4: Dionine and Buprenorphine compounds
Penalties for these crimes can vary greatly. Not only is the substance
involved in the charge key to determining possible penalties, the quantity
is also a critical concern. Texas does include a mandatory six month driver's
license suspense with any drug possession charge. To determine what specific
charges you could be facing for your drug charge, contact
Attorney Lara today.
Have you been arrested for marijuana possession in Texas?
While other states all over the country are reforming their marijuana laws,
Texas marijuana statutes remain strident. In fact, far more people are
arrested for simple marijuana possession than violent crimes in Texas.
Possession of four ounces or less is a misdemeanor that can result in
fines and jail time.
Any volume of marijuana over four ounces is a felony and can result in
a sentence to state prison!
However, these are the maximum penalties. With an advocate in your corner,
reduction of these charges or even a complete dismissal is possible. Put
these possibilities within reach. Contact Attorney Lara today to learn
more about your potential defense strategies.
