Georgetown, TX Drug Possession Laws

If you are found in possession of an illegal drug, you face various consequences, such as:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Heavy fines
  • Probation that involves various restrictions and requirements
  • Loss of your driver’s license
  • Evaluation and treatment in a drug addiction program

The punishment you face will depend on the type of drug found in your possession, its quantity, whether you have previous convictions, and other circumstances.

In Texas, drug crimes fall into four Penalty Groups, with marijuana having its own separate category. Different drugs fall into different categories; these drugs include narcotics, stimulants, hallucinogens, depressants, painkillers, and others. Each Penalty Group carries various charges that can range from a Class A or B misdemeanor up to a first-degree felony.

For example, if you are found in possession of a drug from Penalty Group One, which includes the most dangerous drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and opiates, you could be facing various charges. At low quantities, the penalties could range from 1 to 2 years in jail, along with fines. However, if found with larger quantities, which indicate an intent to sell or distribute, you could be facing felony charges punishable by 2 years to life in prison with fines of up to $250,000.

Various factors will determine the level of charge and penalties, including:

  • The amount found in your possession,
  • How the drug was stored or hidden,
  • Whether drug paraphernalia or large amounts of cash were found
  • If you have previous convictions

Marijuana Laws in Georgetown, TX

Both marijuana and synthetic versions of marijuana fall into this category. Possession of marijuana for one’s own personal use would constitute the lowest level charge. A conviction may result in probation and treatment in a drug abuse program.

A more serious charge may result in up to 180 days in jail and/or fines of up to $2,000, along with a six-month driver’s license suspension. Possession of 2,000 pounds of marijuana could result in a prison term of up to life and fines of up to $50,000.
