This determination is made by looking at the person’s care, custody, control, and/or management of the substance.

Possession with Intent to Deliver
In Texas, possession with the intent to deliver is the legal way of referring to the actual or intended transfer or sale of drugs to another individual. Delivery charges typically apply when a person is found to be in possession of a higher amount of drugs than would be typical for personal use.
Many times, police find other evidence of intent to deliver, such as scales, baggies, cutting agents, and large sums of cash. If the police find evidence of production or preparation of a controlled substance other than marijuana, individuals can even be faced with a manufacturing a controlled substance charge. To deal with these serious allegations, you need a strong advocate on your side. Contact us today to learn more about your rights and next steps.
