Controlled Dangerous Drugs in Texas
Texas law makes it illegal to produce or sell controlled dangerous drugs or to possess CDS with the intention of making or selling them to others. The law breaks down controlled dangerous drugs into four penalty groups with varying punishments for a conviction. The penalties you will face will depend on the nature of the drug involved as well as the quantity found in your possession or under your control at the time of your arrest.
These penalty groups are categorized according to the danger of the substances, their degree of abuse or addiction, and whether they have any medical value. For example, Penalty Group 1 includes opiates of varying types and forms while Penalty Group 1-A includes LSD. Penalties for Group 1 can range from 180 days in jail to 15 to 99 years in prison with fines ranging from $10,000 to $250,000
