A drug charge in Texas is a serious problem, whether it is a Class B misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana under 2 ounces, or a its a 1st Degree felony Possession of Marijuana over 2,000 pounds. There are other numerous and serious charges that could include Manufacture and Delivery of a Controlled Substance.
The consequences of drug charges vary widely, and you will need an experienced defense attorney to defend you. Only a competent defense attorney can properly evaluate the strength of the State's case, and any potential constitutional violations such as an illegal search and seizure.
Moreover, there are many defenses and/or mitigating/aggravating factors that need to be addressed as they will no doubt have an impact on how your case is ultimately resolved.
The difference between a dismissal and probation, or probation and prison may very well depend on the defense attorney you hire.
