EFFECTS OF DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE

Excessive alcohol consumption and the abuse of drugs are just plain dangerous. Alcohol and drug abuse can affect your health and your ability function and think, and women are negatively affected even more than men. Heavy drinkers and drug abusers are not only a danger to themselves, but to others -- on the highways, at home and in the workplace.

Health Effects of Alcohol

Almost every system in the body can be negatively affected by excessive or chronic alcohol consumption. Alcohol can cause cancer, liver disease, heart attacks and brain damage, to name a few. Because many alcoholics also smoke, the health risks are further compounded.

Health Effects of Drugs

Abusing illegal, prescription and over-the-counter drugs can negatively affect your health in many different ways. Even if it's considered "medicine," drugs can have dangerous side-effects if they are not taken as prescribed. Drug abuse can lead to gum disease, tooth loss, organ damage or failure, heart attack, stroke, over-dose, or even death.

Penalties for Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance

State:

State of Texas Penalties for Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance

How Texas Classifies CDS

Texas divides CDS into four “penalty groups” (and two sub-groups). Penalty Group 1 lists the most dangerous drugs, which have a high probability of abuse and addiction, and no recognized medical value. Groups 1-A, 2, 2-A, 3, and 4 decrease in dangerousness and probability of abuse, and increase in recognized medical uses.

If you've been arrested for illegal CDS possession, you'll need to consult the Texas Code that lists precisely which drugs fit into each group. Go to the statute (Tx. Health & Safety Code Ann. § 481-102, 481.1021, 481.103, 481.1031, 481.104, & 481.105) and find the substance you're charged with possessing -- it will be listed under one of the six groups. (To find these statutes using the above link, choose the Health and Safety Code, then Chapter 481, then Art./Sec. 481.102.)

Group 2-A encompasses marijuana and its derivatives, and is not covered in this article.

Federal:

Federal Penalties for Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance

See 21 USC 844(a).

The statute applies to marihuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, ecstasy, psychedelic mushrooms, LSD, and peyote, just as it does to prescribed medications such as oxycodone (OxyContin) and hydrocodone (Vicodin). The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is responsible for regulating controlled substances. Read the DEA list of abused chemicals.

The penalty for possession of a controlled substance is up to one year imprisonment and a fine of at least $1,000 but no more than $100,000. It is a misdemeanor offense.

However, if the defendant has prior convictions for drug offenses under either state or federal law, then the offense is a felony with enhanced penalties.

With one prior conviction, the defendant must be sentenced to a minimum 15 days in prison, or a maximum of 2 years. The court must also impose a fine of at least $2,500 but not more than $250,000.

Talk to an Attorney

CDS possession convictions can incur harsh penalties, fines and/or long periods of incarceration. Speak with a local lawyer who practices CDS defense. They will be able to review the facts of your case, explain your options, and advise you of possible consequences.

If you have lost federal student aid eligibility due to a drug conviction, you can regain eligibility if you pass two unannounced drug tests conducted by a drug rehabilitation program that complies with criteria established by the U.S. Department of Education.
