What Amount of Drugs is Considered Trafficking?

Under the Texas Controlled Substances Act, an offense under statute §481.112 has very specific guidelines for the amount of drugs that is considered trafficking in Texas.

  • State Jail Felony - if the amount of the substance is (by aggregate weight) including dilutants or adulterants less than one gram.
  • First Degree Felony - if the amount of the substance is (by aggregate weight) including dilutants or adulterants four grams or more but less than 200 grams.
  • Second Degree Felony - if the amount of the substance is (by aggregate weight) including dilutants or adulterants one gram or more but less than four grams.

If you have been charged with drug trafficking in Texas, contact our drug trafficking lawyers at The Law Office of Scott Mackenzie, P.C. for experienced and aggressive representation.

Drug Trafficking Consequences in Texas

Under statute §481.112 the Texas Controlled Substances Act states that drug trafficking is defined when an individual "knowingly manufactures, delivers, or possesses with intent to deliver a controlled substance." A drug crime accusation could lead to serious consequences that have a long-term impact on you and your loved ones.

Common penalties for drug-related crimes include:

  • Fines
  • Jail time
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Inability to maintain your current employment
  • Inability to obtain jobs in the future
  • Inability to receive financial aid for school

For the sake of your future, it is important to obtain experienced legal representation that can help you reduce or avoid these types of penalties.

Drug Searches & Your Rights

The U.S. Constitution offers many protections to individuals, including those who have been accused of a drug crime. Often, drug crime cases involve an investigation into whether the evidence was properly obtained by law enforcement.

When evidence has been obtained in a way that violates the accused’s constitutional rights, it is inadmissible to the court. For more information regarding the protection of your Fourth Amendment rights, contact our qualified criminal defense lawyers.
