What is the Delivery of a Controlled Substance?

According to the Texas Health and Safety Code, “‘Deliver’ means to transfer, actually or constructively, to another a controlled substance, counterfeit substance, or drug paraphernalia, regardless of whether there is an agency relationship. The term includes offering to sell a controlled substance, counterfeit substance, or drug paraphernalia.” There are a variety of charges that can come with delivering a controlled substance to another person, depending on the type of drug, the amount of the drug, and the context in which you were delivering it. Read more below on the different ways this violation is handled.

Penalties for Delivering Controlled Substances

The following list is not a complete list of penalties associated with the delivery of controlled substances but provides an overview of the laws and punishments associated with certain types of common violations.
