Methamphetamine is a dangerous, homemade drug that represents a growing health & safety concern of the State of Texas, and a criminal concern for the Texas criminal justice system.
Due to the criminal element associated with the drug, the crimes committed by addicts who are hoping to raise funds to supply their drug habit, and the dangerous health effects posed by consistent use of the drug, possession of any amount of meth is a felony in Texas, and is harshly prosecuted.
If you or a loved one was arrested in connection with meth it may be possible to avoid jail by taking advantage of a drug treatment program. If you were arrested for selling or manufacturing meth, you’ll need an experienced lawyer on your side that knows how to win in court.
