Penalties for Drug Sales in Texas
As with all other drug crimes, Texas divides all substances into one of five different penalty groups. This penalty group, along with the amount you are found in possession with, your intent, and any aggravating factors, such as the location of the sale or your intended buyer.
- If you are convicted of selling CDS or possessing them with the intent to sell, you could be facing:
- Prison sentences
- Large fines
- Community service
The most dangerous drugs with no accepted medical use generally are considered in penalty group 1 while those with a low addiction possibility and some medical use are considered in penalty group 4. The same is true for the compounds used to manufacture CDS; possession with the intent to manufacture or sell them is also punishable under these laws. Marijuana sales are prosecuted differently, but do still carry similar penalties.
