Drug Charges in the State of Texas
As a border state, Texas is particularly hard on drugs. The severity of the charge depends on the type of drug, the quantity, and the intent. Types of drug charges include:
- Intent to Deliver
- Intent to Distribute
Not all drugs are created equal under the eyes of the law. Possession of controlled substances such as cocaine, heroine, methamphetamine, or ecstasy will most likely result in a felony charge where as small quantities of marijuana may result in misdemeanor charges.
The amount you are caught with is usually used by the state to determine your intent. Large quantities of controlled substances may indicate an intent to sell, or distribute, whereas small quantities are suspected to be for personal use.
