Drug Crimes in Texas
Drug crimes are usually sentenced based on several factors, including the intent of the possession, the type of drug possessed, the amount of it, and the location where the crime occurred. Each case different, making the counsel of an experienced Hidalgo County criminal defense attorney crucial to your case.
Texas divides CDS into five groups:
- Penalty Group 1: Includes cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamines
- Penalty Group 1-A: Includes LSD
- Penalty Group 2: Includes ecstasy, PCP, and Marinol
- Penalty Group 3: Includes Valium, Xanex, Ritalin, and small amounts of hydrocodone
- Penalty Group 4: Includes morphine, some opioids, and Pyrovalerone
The penalty groups are arranged according to perceived danger, with Group 1 possessing those drugs with no accepted medical use and a high possibility of addiction, and group 4 being the opposite. All drugs are classified into these groups, which will then dictate whether your charge will be a misdemeanor or felony. Marijuana is charged differently from these groups, though under similar rules.
