Drug Distribution

Drug distribution is a violation of the Texas Controlled Substances Act. A person may be found guilty of drug distribution if they are proven to have knowingly delivered marijuana or any other illicit or controlled substance within any of the four groups of drugs defined and listed in the Texas Controlled Substances Act. (Marijuana is classified separately under this law.)

Texas drug trafficking or distribution laws charge the crime as a felony with penalties ranging anywhere from a state jail felony, which carries the lightest sentence, to a first degree felony, which carries the harshest. The factors influencing which sentence will be imposed are:

  • the amount of the drug being distributed or delivered
  • the type of drug and which of the four groups of drugs it is classified under

Prosecutors may often present plea deals to defendants where they may offer a charge with a lesser penalty in exchange for information that would help attain evidence for a higher priority investigation.
