McKinney Drug Lawyer
If you are accused of a drugs/marijuana charge in Texas then at the very least you will be facing a misdemeanor charge under Texas law. However, very quickly you may be facing a felony charge if the amounts involved are larger, certain drugs are found, or you face additional charges such as intent to sell.

No matter how trivial you may think your situation is, Texas enforces its drugs laws to the fullest extent possible. Even as a first-time offender you can find yourself serving time in jail, on probation, and with the requirement to enroll in a mandatory rehabilitation program. Life as a convicted felon is something that can be very difficult, your ability to gain employment, rent property, get finance, hold a license to own a gun, and hold certain licenses can be adversely affected.
In Texas the health and safety code dictates drug possession laws and splits controlled substances into five penalty groupings with an additional marijuana group. Even some drugs that are legal with a prescription will still be illegal if you have them without the required permission from a physician. This same code dictates punitive measures regarding illegal possession, of legal prescription drugs.
Whilst marijuana has enjoyed a certain level of legality and tolerance in certain states, in Texas if you are caught with any drugs/marijuana you will face some pretty severe consequences.
