Penalties for Selling Drugs in Dallas

Many states have specific laws prohibiting the sale of illegal drugs. Texas does not have a law specifically prohibiting the sale of drugs, but it does have laws against distributing or delivering drugs, which includes exchanging a controlled substance for money or any other form of compensation. These laws are found in Texas Health & Safety Code § 481.112 through § 481.114 and are punishable as felonies. The lowest sentence for selling drugs in Texas is a jail felony, which is punishable by 180 days to 2 years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000.

The penalties steadily increase depending on the type of drug that was sold and the amount that was exchanged. The most severe penalty is for 400 or more grams of a substance under Penalty Group 1, such as cocaine or heroin, and involves a prison sentence of 15-99 years (or life) and a fine of up to $250,000.
