The state of Texas has established some of the strictest possession laws in the nation. According to the state's health and safety code, possession charges will be prosecuted under one of four penalty groups, which are determined by the type of drug in question.
Drug Possession with Intent to Distribute
Possession with intent to distribute is an enhanced charge that generally occurs when a person is in possession of a large amount of a controlled substance and there is evidence that sales have or will take place. As a felony offense, this drug crime is punishable by fines, imprisonment, and probation.
Sales charges typically involve a transaction between two or more parties in which a controlled substance is exchanged. Regardless of the drug in question, sales charges are usually prosecuted as felony offenses and carry stiff penalties and terms of incarceration.
Texas imposes very serious penalties for offenders convicted of distribution. Similar to trafficking allegations, distribution charges result from the distribution or delivery of controlled substances. When determining terms of imprisonment, prosecutors will consider the type of drug and the amount of drug being distributed.
The manufacturing of a controlled substance is a serious crime in the state of Texas. Depending on the drug in question and the penalty group under which it falls, felony convictions can result in large fines and minimum terms of imprisonment.
Drug trafficking is a serious felony drug crime that involves the possession, delivery or transportation of a controlled substance. If the offense occurs over state lines, alleged offenders may also be prosecuted in a federal court. Depending on the situation and the drug in question, offenders may face serious criminal penalties, including lengthy prison sentences.
America has become a nation that produces and consumes a majority of the world's prescription medication. Inevitably, government agencies attempt to keep the medical community free from crime by enforcing prescription fraud and forgery laws and aggressively prosecuting alleged offenders.

Of the various schedules of controlled substances, some of the most common types of drugs in criminal offenses include:
