Understanding Texas Drug Laws

Texas frowns on illegal drug use and its Texas Controlled Substances Act is one of the harshest set of drug laws in the country. Even simple possession of regulated substances can result in a criminal conviction and assessment of a harsh penalty, such as a fine, a prison or jail sentence, or both, depending on the facts of the incident. However, if you are facing a possession charge, there must be evidence that you knew that you were in possession of the illicit drug.
