Up to 7 Grams
Selling up to seven grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor offense that can be punished with up to a year in prison and a maximum fine of $4,000.

Selling this amount of marijuana is a felony that's punishable with 180 days to two years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.
5 Pounds to 50 Pounds

Intent to Sell Charges
If you possess or transport a large quantity of an illicit substance but have not distributed it, you may still be charged with possession with intent to sell. In this case, the court can consider circumstantial evidence, including the presence of paraphernalia, the quantity of on-hand cash, and the frequency of visitors. If the evidence presented is substantially incriminating, the court does not have to prove that you knew of the presence of the illicit substance.
Drug trafficking charges are very serious and should be handled with care by a qualified criminal defense attorney to avoid long-term repercussions. Contact our Austin attorney today.
Possible Defense Strategies
Law Enforcement Mistakes
Our attorney knows that some narcotics officers cut corners and make false statements to file cases. They may also use informants who could provide incorrect information.
Illegal Search and Seizure
Based on your unique circumstances, we may be able to move to suppress evidence if there is proof of an illegal search by law enforcement or other civil rights violations.
In some cases, innocent victims will transport illegal substances for employers, friends, or loved ones, unaware that they are committing a crime. Prosecutors must be able to prove that you knew you were drug trafficking. Our attorney can help present your story accurately.
