Drug and Controlled Substance Possession

law banner

Most Drug Offenses are enumerated in the Texas Heath & Safety Code, which outlines the controlled substances and crimes. Among the most illicit drugs in the Code are Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Heroin, and even Marijuana. Each drug has different punishments and consequences attached, depending on the amounts and circumstances under which the arrest occurred.

Often, drug possession cases involve a search of you, your car, a bag or backpack, or a search of your home. Each search by an officer requires a certain amount of suspicion amounting to reasonable suspicion or probable cause. This means there must be articulable or descriptive facts as to why you were searched. Normally, law enforcement searches you upon observing suspicious activity, or, if your car was searched, then during a traffic stop. Other types of searches, such as those in your home, require a search warrant. Many drug possession cases contain violation issues of the search and your fourth amendment right, leading to a motion to suppress.
