Xanax is a prescription drug that is often used illegally. Texas law lists Xanax as a Penalty Group 3 drug, meaning any possession of it outside of a prescription can be tried as a criminal offense. If you have been charged with possession of Xanax, do not hesitate to seek a qualified drug attorney to provide the defense you need.
Our Texas drug lawyers at Hamilton Grant PC are known for providing aggressive and zealous defense. They have fought and defeated difficult criminal charges and can handle your case.
Consequences of Possessing Xanax
If you are found to have Xanax in your possession without a legal prescription, you will face criminal charges. The nature and consequences of your charges depend on the amount of the drug you are charged for: anything less than 28 grams is a misdemeanor and anything more is a felony.
If convicted, you could face the following punishments:
- Suspension of your driver’s license
- Fines of up to $10,000
- Jail time of up to one year
- Prison time up to a life sentence
- Loss of property
- Other penalties
While the penalties for possession of Xanax are harsh, there are even steeper consequences for trafficking. This is because drug trafficking (distributing, selling, etc.) is always considered a felony. Contact a lawyer from our firm today for legal assistance fighting your criminal drug charges.
