Manufacturing of a Controlled Substance

Drug Attorney in Houston, TX

The law governing manufacture of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance are found within the same statute. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has held that you cannot be charged with both manufacturing a controlled substance and then charged with possession with intent to deliver the same controlled substance. To allow the State of Texas to do so would punishing you twice for the same offense, and that would violate your constitutional rights against double jeopardy. If you have been charged with manufacturing a controlled substance, it is important to hire an experienced and knowledgeable Houston drug crime lawyer.
