When individuals in Texas and elsewhere think of drug crimes, they likely think of street drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines. Nonetheless, an individual could face drug charges for simply having a drug in his or her possession that they shouldn’t. Prescription drugs, although legally possessed by those prescribed them, could result in drug charges if a person is in possession of prescription medications without a prescription.

Being accused of a prescription drug crime is a serious situation and should be treated like any other criminal allegation. The accused has the right to assert a defense. However, it is imperative that they fully understand the accusations that they face and the potential penalties that could result.
