How Does Texas Prosecute Drug Possession?

Like most states, Texas has a scale regarding illegal drugs, classifying them according to their potential danger for addiction and side effects. What type of drug, the amount found, and any previous offenses on your record will all play a part in how you are prosecuted.

For example, if you are arrested for a first offense for possessing less than two ounces of marijuana, you may be able to secure alternative sentencing rather than full penalties. However, if you have two previous offenses and have several grams of cocaine, you could be facing much harsher repercussions.

Group 1 drugs carry the following penalties:

  • Up to 2 years in jail for less than 1 gram
  • Up to 10 years in prison for 4 grams

Group 2 drugs will bring the following penalties:

  • Up to 2 years in jail for less than 1 gram
  • Between 2 and 10 years in prison for 4 grams
  • Up to 1 year in jail for 28 grams of illegal prescription medication

In addition to jail time, many convictions will bring up to thousands of dollars in fines, depending on the amount in possession and the location the crime took place. Penalties can increase if the crime was committed on school property.
