If an individual is arrested and charged with an offense related to the manufacturing, delivery and distribution of drugs or a controlled substance in any way, they’ll be charged with an offense referred to as Manufacture/Delivery of CS (PG1 – PG4).
The severity of the charge and subsequent sentence if adjudged guilty, largely depends on the kind of drug (as indicated the PG or Penalty Group) that the defendant was charged in connection with, and the amount or quantity of said drug involved.

The Texas Controlled Substances Act
Understanding “Delivery” Accusations
Delivery, according the to the Texas Controlled Substances Act, is defined by simply giving a controlled substance or simulated controlled substance to another person. This can be a direct hand-off, or an indirect delivery.
A great example of indirect delivery could be giving someone the keys to a lock-box or trunk where the drugs are located.
In the State of Texas, a delivery charge should be considered the charge for “selling” drugs, regardless of whether money was involved in the transaction or not.
If the Houston Police Department, Harris County Sheriff’s Office, or other law enforcement agency employed the use of an undercover operative to take delivery of the drug from you, they’ll likely appear in court ready to testify against you. Slight tactics such as the deployment of snitches or electronic surveillance are also among the tools in use by Texas law enforcement officers.
Regardless of the tricks employed by the government, you have rights. If your rights were violated, and we can prove it, the government has no case against you. This is why it’s important to have an experienced drug-lawyer on your side for tough cases like this.
