Prescription Drug Crimes

State and federal law enforcement officials have made it their mission to crack down on prescription drug crimes. In Texas, you can be charged with a felony for possessing even a small amount of medication if you do not have a prescription.

The stakes are even higher if you are charged with distribution, possession with intent to distribute, or trafficking. If you are facing state or federal prescription drug charges, it is crucial that you waste no time in building a strong defense.

Understand What Is At Stake

Abuse of prescription drugs is on the rise in Texas and across the country. While courts have gradually begun to view prescription drug abuse as a public health issue, the reality is that a conviction can still result in years of incarceration, thousands of dollars in fines, and a criminal record.
