Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

Is a Drug Conviction a Felony in Texas?

The state of Texas is considered to have some of the toughest drug laws on its books in the country. Simply put, Texas takes drug-related criminal activity seriously, and this is reflected in its mandatory minimums for some drug offenses and its relatively harsh stance on marijuana in particular as compared to other states. 

In Texas, however, not every drug crime is treated the same. Punishments vary, depending on the nature of the charge in question; possession, distribution, and manufacturing of drugs can all be viewed differently. The type of drug in question also matters. So, if you’re wondering whether a drug conviction is a felony in Texas, read on to discover how the details can change the answer to your question. 

Felony Drug Crimes in Texas

Texas has strict laws governing narcotics and controlled substances. If convicted of a drug crime, you could face punishments ranging from jail time to a fine or even drug addiction treatment. Not every charge is the same, however, and factors such as the type of drug in question, the amount, or having a prescription for the substance in question can change the severity of the charges you face. 

Some misdemeanor charges include simple possession or sale of minor drugs, such as marijuana. Be advised that these charges could still lead to incarceration, plus fines. Examples of felonies can include distribution, possession, or cultivation of any controlled substance in a significant amount.
