Possession of a Controlled Substance is a criminal offense. If a person is arrested for possession with intent to deliver, they’ll face criminal charges for manufacture & delivery of a controlled substance. Although possession of a controlled substance is a serious crime, the stakes are raised when the defendant is charged with the manufacture & delivery of controlled substances.
Although some defendants may have economic justification for their actions, the state doesn’t care. If it’s a crime, prosecutors will pursue the defendant to the fullest extent of the law.

Manufacture & Delivery of a Controlled Substance
A Look at Texas Law & the Offense
Manufacture & Delivery of a controlled substance is a crime that’s outlined in the Texas Controlled Substances Act. This is the charge that’s applied to individuals who are believed to be engaged in an enterprise to profit from the sale or distribution of a controlled substance. However, the law doesn’t define the crime in the “enterprise” nature but rather that of the industrious one.
The law, which is defined by Title 6 of the Texas Health & Safety Code, provides a broad array of definitions for “manufacture” that can be applied to this offense. Still, essentially, it’s an enhanced possession of a controlled substance charge.
How It Works
A person that’s arrested for possession of a controlled substance will face a criminal charge related to the type of substance they possessed and the quantity of the substance.
However, if there’s evidence to suggest that the person was manufacturing or delivering the drug (controlled substance), the charge will be escalated to the next most severe charge.
To get a better idea of how the criminal charge may be assessed based on type and quantity, visit our Texas Drug Penalty Group page. Once you find the appropriate drug penalty group, find the drug penalty table for that group and pick any one of the charges. Now, if the person was accused of manufacturing or delivering the drug, select the next most severe charge or criminal classification.
That’s how the law works on enhanced P/CS cases or “manufacture & delivery” cases.
