A Texas drug possession charge should be taken very seriously. The severity of a charge will depend largely upon several factors, including:
- How the drug was concealed or stored?
- Drugs found with large amount of money
- Past convictions
While penalties can range from misdemeanor to felony offenses, any serious drug offense conviction can wreak havoc on a personal or professional life, career and educational opportunities.
If you have been charged with a drug offense, it is important to protect your rights by partnering with the strongest attorney possible.

It is important to realize that for certain drug offenses (under two ounces of marijuana), there is a cite and release statute where someone charged only receives a "ticket." This is actually a Class A or B misdemeanor, and you will need an attorney.
