Drug Possession Defense Attorneys in Dallas

Defending Clients in Dallas County, Collin County & Tarrant County

A growing number of critics question whether jail time makes sense for people who are struggling with addiction, or even for recreational users. But, addiction or not, that won't matter if the police arrest you for drug possession. Generally speaking, whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug crime depends on the amount and type of drug involved.

Marijuana: Possession of a very small amount of marijuana is a misdemeanor, while anything above the misdemeanor limit (above four ounces at the time of writing) is a felony.

Other drugs: Possession of some types of drugs can mean felony drug charges, even for legal drugs like prescription painkillers. With cocaine and meth, possessing just a small amount can be a felony.

And if you're charged with drug possession involving large amounts, you could face possession with intent to sell, distribution, or even drug trafficking.

The Dangers of Drug Convictions for Young People

Drug possession charges are common for younger people, especially students in college who have easy access to street drugs for the first time and are tempted by peer pressure. Unfortunately, even a seemingly minor drug charge could have lifelong consequences, jeopardizing college financial aid, banning the student from campus housing, and preventing future career and housing opportunities.

There are ways to fight drug charges against young people, particularly if they have never been in trouble with the law before. We work hard to keep students out of jail and fight to keep a conviction off their record.
