Explore our guide to learn more about the laws regarding possession of these drugs and how our experienced defense attorney can help.
Possession Laws For Club Drugs
As stated above, MDMA and other club drugs are considered part of Penalty Group 2 in the state of Texas. This means the charges for possessing them typically aren’t as harsh as those for drugs like heroin and cocaine — however, being arrested with one of these substances can still result in hefty fines and significant jail time, putting your future in jeopardy.
The severity of your sentencing will vary depending on several factors including how much of the drug is in your possession and whether you have a criminal record. If you’re arrested with less than a gram of MDMA, PCP, or a similar substance, you may spend up to two years in jail.
The maximum penalties for possession of club drugs, applying to people who are arrested with 400 grams or more, are fines of $50,00 and up to life in prison.
That’s why it’s essential to enlist a knowledgeable defense attorney who will fight tirelessly to obtain the best outcome for your future.
