What type of penalties am I facing?
Texas classifies ecstasy (MDMA) as a Penalty Group 2 drug. This means that you will be facing severe penalties and consequences for the sale, trafficking, or manufacturing of this drug. You will also have to deal with stiff consequences if convicted of possession with the intent to distribute.
For simple possession, you will face the following:
- Less than a gram: State jail felony on your record, up to 2 years in jail, and $10,000 in fines
- Between 1 and 4 grams: Third degree felony on your record, up to 10 years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines
- Between 4 and 200 grams: Second degree felony on your record, up to 20 years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines
- Between 200 and 400 grams: First degree felony on your record, up to 99 years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines
When you are in possession of more than a certain amount of grams, the prosecution will often push to demonstrate that you were in possession with the intent to distribute or sell, which can result in even tougher penalties.
