Drug Possession Crimes & Penalties for Conviction

Texas law has four classes of drugs, and each has its own classification and penalties. In addition to the classes of drugs, there are different possession charges, depending on what type of drug or paraphernalia and the amount of the drug. Higher amounts or drugs in multiple containers may result in a possession with intent to sell charge.

Possible charges include:

  • Possession of marijuana
  • Possession of a dangerous drug
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

The penalties for drug conviction in Texas are among the toughest in the nation. Drug possession may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the situation.

The penalties for conviction vary depending on:

  • The type of drug
  • Quantity
  • How the drug is stored
  • Any past convictions

The penalties for conviction depend on whether the person is charged with a misdemeanor or felony, but may include time in jail and fines of up to $250,000.
