Drug Crimes in Texas

Texas and federal law enforcement agencies classify drugs based on Schedules, which rate each narcotic according to their abuse risk and medical acceptance. Schedule I has the highest potential for abuse and no accepted medical use whatsoever, while Schedule V has the lowest potential for abuse and is widely used in the medical field.

Here are the most common narcotics involved in drug crimes according to their Schedules:

  • Schedule I - Heroin, crack cocaine, LSD, PCP, mushroom, ecstasy, and cannabis.

  • Schedule II - Cocaine, oxycodone, morphine, opium, methamphetamine, and codeine

  • Schedule III - Ketamine, Vicodin, and anabolic steroids

  • Schedule IV - Valium, Xanax, and Darvocet

  • Schedule V - Cough medicine with codeine

Possession of a Schedule I or II drug can lead to a state jail felony, which carries a maximum state jail sentence of two years and a fine of up to $10,000. Possession of Schedule III or IV can lead to misdemeanor charges. Possession with intent, trafficking, and manufacturing can lead to serious felonies.

However, Texas has separate marijuana laws. Although many states throughout the country have legalized medicinal and recreational marijuana, all forms are illegal in Texas. Possession of less than two ounces of cannabis is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by a jail term of up to 180 days and a fine of no more than $2,000.
