A Closer Look at Charges Related to Possession of Controlled Substances
In the state of Texas, drug possession is a serious criminal offense that often results in severe punishments. Hard drugs, like cocaine and methamphetamine, carry a sentence of at least 180 days in jail for under a gram and 10 to 99 years in a state prison for 400 grams or more. Those convicted of possessing controlled substances may also be fined up to $100,000 for large amounts. Prescription drugs, like Valium, Xanax, and Ritalin, are in a different penalty group, but the maximum sentence is still 99 years in prison for large amounts. In addition to these penalties, the state of Texas can revoke the driver’s licenses of convicted individuals for up to six months.
