Drug Trafficking

San Antonio Drug Trafficking Defense Attorney

What Are the Penalties for Drug Trafficking in Texas?

Just like in drug possession charges, penalties for drug trafficking offenses greatly depend on a number of different factors. Even the most basic of manufacturing, sale, importation, or delivery circumstances can result in a significant drug trafficking sentence.

Factors that contribute to potential drug trafficking penalties:

  • The type (or group classification) of the substance
  • The quantity of substance found
  • Prior criminal charges of the accused
  • The use or possession of any weapons related to the charge
  • The presence of any minors (under 18 years old)
  • The origin and destination of the drugs, and/or crossing of state or national boarders

Colorado Routes & the Influence of Marijuana Trafficking

Since Colorado's legalization of marijuana in 2012, Texas has seen a spike in marijuana trafficking arrests, specifically with motorists headed to or departing from Colorado with marijuana and marijuana goods. It is important to know the distinction between these two items: while small amounts of transported marijuana is usually charged as a misdemeanor, the same, small amount blended into another product is a felony.

The Texas penal code does not discriminate between drug cartels participating in a narcotics economy and otherwise law-abiding citizens transporting items that are legal in other states like Colorado. Make sure your representation is ready to draw a hard line both in and out of the courtroom and ensure that the perception of your alleged offense is not preyed upon by the prosecution.

The Law Office of Guillermo Lara Jr. Trafficking Legal Counsel

While simple drug possession charges usually address found substances for personal, recreational use, drug trafficking offenses imply a much more severe infraction: engagement in a drug enterprise. Texas drug trafficking laws were designed to address large and dangerous drug cartels, but anyone accused of these offense is subject to the same, harsh penalties. In the case of moving a controlled substance over state lines, drug trafficking can also lead to serious federal charges.
