The United States is engaged in a War on Drugs or more accurately defined as a war on people that do drugs and Texas is leading the charge. If you have already been charged with possession of drugs or manufacture of a controlled substance, or intention to supply, there are a number of things Harris County Drug Attorney Andy Nolen thinks you should know:

1. A drug conviction in Texas will result in the loss of your drivers license. That will then add surcharges and reinstatement fees which can run over $1000. You will also have to take the Drug Offender Education Program (D. O. E. P. ).

This course is for individuals whom have already been charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug offense. This class will satisfy the requirement for education mainly because of a suspended driver's license. The standardized program is 15 hours in length taught in three-hour segments.

2. A conviction for drugs could result in your losing eligibility for certain types of federal school funding for school. Some schools may expel a person if the drug offense was committed on school property. So not only could you lose your drivers license, but you may also lose your diploma.

3. If you have been charged with a drug crime, it is nearly a certainty that you will be tested for drugs at some point. This may be while your on bond and possibly the first time you go to court. Weed can stay in a person's system for up to 6 weeks. Products designed to beat the system usually do not work, so don't rely on them. Don't do drugs of any type while on bond or you risk getting your bond terminated and going to jail. Also, you don't need to appear to be an active drug user to the court, making your case more problematic.

4. Drug residue such as incredibly small quantities in a pipe or bag is a felony if it is a controlled substance. Cannabis must be a useful quantity to be a crime.

5. The most common ways drug cases are beaten are either that there was an unlawful Search and Seizure or that there is lack of Affirmative Links between a defendant and the drugs. If the search was bad, the evidence can be suppressed. Affirmative Links disputes are generally circumstances like when there are 4 individuals in a car and the state are not able to confirm the drugs belonged to any certain person. Also noted as, it was the other guy not me.
Harris County Drug Attorney Andy Nolen has made use of both of these techniques to have felony and misdemeanor drug cases dismissed.
6. The State need to also verify that the drugs were in fact drugs. Insisting that the "drugs" in question were in fact drugs can sometimes get a case dismissed.

Harris County Drug Attorney Andy Nolen recently had a felony possession of a controlled substances charge dismissed after requesting the state to examine the "x pill". Turned out, the item wasn't ecstasy at all and the case was dismissed. The happy client had a very unhappy brother that was also charged with the same thing but had a court appointed lawyer who plead him guilty and he is currently on 4 years felony probation for absolutely nothing! If he violates his probation, they will not reconsider the evidence, they will revoke him and incarcerate him.
