A dangerous drug is any drug not listed in schedules I through V or penalty groups 1 through 4 in the Texas Controlled Substances Act and is unsafe for self-medication. A dangerous drug is a drug that bears the label prescription only, or must be dispensed only by a veterinarian, but is not a scheduled drug. If law enforcement finds you with a prescription drug that is not a controlled substance, but it is not in the appropriate prescription bottle, or if you are trying to sell prescription pills, the State may charge you with possession of a dangerous drug.

If the State has accused you of possession of a dangerous drug, you must retain the assistance of a qualified attorney. Reliable legal counsel can help increase your chances of getting your charges reduced or ultimately dismissed. Jason Trumpler is a criminal defense attorney with 20-years of experience.

Potential Consequences

Legally, you may only possess a dangerous drug if you have a prescription, and a pharmacist obtained it. Pharmacists themselves have rules and stipulations for how they dispense medications. If the State has charged with possession of a dangerous drug, it is typically a Class A Misdemeanor. If convicted, you could face penalties, including:

  • 6 Month Driver's License Suspension.
  • Up to $4,000 Fine.
  • Up to One Year Jail.

Additionally, a conviction of possession of a dangerous drug can complicate future employment and housing opportunities. Sometimes the dangerous drug is found on your person due to an illegal search. An experienced attorney will look at all of the details of your case and craft a defense that is best for you.
