According to the Texas Controlled Substances Act, all the drugs/substances that are illegal are divided into four penalty groups (PG-1 through PG-4). PG-1 drugs tend to be most serious and carry the most penalties. These include heroin, OxyContin, cocaine, morphine, methadone, the Date Rape Drug, GHB, etc. Drugs in this group are those for which Texas State Prosecutors will seek the strongest punishment. While any drug related charges pose a serious risk to your life and liberty, drugs from this group are of most concern.

Colorado To Texas Pot Transportation: What You Need To Know

As laws about drugs and what is legal and illegal continue to change around the country, Paine & Nolter, P.C. remains committed to providing the most comprehensive drug crime defense services available anywhere in Denton or the surrounding area.

As such, we also represent individuals with charges stemming from marijuana possession. This includes those who obtained it legally and then brought it into the state of Texas. Amid the recent legalization for recreational purposes in other states, many people in the state of Texas find themselves facing pot charges after legally purchasing pot in Colorado or any of the various other states where it is now legal and bringing it back to Texas.

It is important to understand that pot may be legal in other states, it is not in Texas and authorities will not hesitate to charge you for illegal marijuana possession. Even pot possession of less than 2 ounces can mean jail time, and a permanent conviction on your record.
