Texas Has Strict Penalties for Drug Charges

There has been little movement toward drug decriminalization in the Lone Star State, which means that serious punishment, jail time and fines are very real possibilities. Here is a brief overview of some of the drug charges we handle:

  • Possession of marijuana: It is not classified as a controlled substance, but it can lead to illegal drug possession charges. Less than two ounces is a class B misdemeanor with up to 180 days in jail and $2,000 fine, and it goes up from there.

  • Possession of THC: Possession of Delta-9 THC is a felony and classified as Penalty Group 2. Even a trace amount is punishable by up to 2 years in the state jail division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and up to a $10,000 fine. Larger quantities can bring even stiffer punishment.

  • Possession of Methamphetamine: Possession of methamphetamine is Penalty Group 1 and is also always a felony charge. Similarly, even a trace amount is punishable by up to 2 years in the state jail division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and up to a $10,000 fine. Larger quantities can be punished by as much as life in prison. Because it is Penalty Group 1, much is at stake with any charge relating to methamphetamine.
