Information About Methamphetamine Defense
Certain illicit drugs, such as methamphetamine, are restricted at both the federal and state level. This includes the manufacturing, cultivation, trafficking, distribution and possession of these substances. Conviction on drug charges often carries harsh sentences, including prison time. Sometimes, however, prosecutors will offer plea bargain deals to lower-level offenders in exchange for information on a larger case.

As an example of how different levels of drug dealing are treated, Texas law assigns penalties based on the weight of certain types of drugs. Different drugs are divided into “penalty groups” to determine the type of felony and punishment range that applies. For methamphetamine and other penalty group 1 drugs, the range of penalties include:
- Less than 1 gram: a state jail felony with possible punishment of up to 2 years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000
- 1-4 grams: a 2nd degree felony with possible punishment of 2-20 years and fine of up to $10,000
