Hi, I am Jay Cohen from Blass Law and we are here to talk about cocaine possession in Texas.
Cocaine is bad don’t possess it, don’t do it! I am here to tell you about the penalties. In Texas cocaine is a penalty group 1 substances. What that mean is any amount of cocaine is a felony. Less than a gram of cocaine is a state jail felony.
Possession of 1 to 4 grams of cocaine is a 3rd degree felony. Possession of a quarter (4 to 400 grams) of cocaine is a 2nd degree felony and possession of greater than 400 grams of cocaine is a first degree felony.
People are at bars, people are watching a baseball game, maybe working late, whatever the reason people get caught for possession of cocaine. So what you need to be aware of is that even if you have an item like pills or razor blades or a straw with residue of cocaine on it you could be still charged with possession of cocaine.
So, if you find yourself in a situation, call a drug possession lawyer from Blass Law and we can help!
