About Texas Controlled Substance Laws
Texas controlled substance laws are strict, complicated and are enforced heavily. Being caught in the possession of such substances can bring a multitude of charges and will most likely include prison time.
Five separate classifications for these substances exist-they are known as Schedules. These schedules have specific details that categorize each drug on the basis of such characteristics as potential for abuse, addictiveness and dangerousness. Any person who uses or sells these substances for anything other than a legitimate medicinal use may be committing either a class 6 felony or a class A misdemeanor (although possession of two ounces or less of marijuana is considered a class B misdemeanor).
Any offense involving a Texas controlled substance will require a drug defense attorney, either to demonstrate legitimate medical use or to help you navigate the legal process as it relates to your case.
