Ecstasy Possession

“Ecstasy” is the street name given to a chemical called MDMA, which stands for 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine. MDMA usually comes in a powder and is considered to be the drug’s purest form, while the tablets that people call ecstasy are typically impure because they often have other active agents in them. Due to a United Nations agreement, ecstasy has become one of the most widely criminalized substances in the world.

If you have been accused of ecstasy possession, you could be facing thousands of dollars in fines as well as many years of jail time if convicted. However, a Dallas criminal lawyer at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter can help defend you from the harsh penalties you are facing. Contact our offices at 214-845-7007 for a free case evaluation.

Consequences of Ecstasy Possession

Ecstasy is part of drug Penalty Group 2 in Texas, which means that even possession of less than one gram can result in imprisonment. Carrying between one and four grams is a third-degree felony that may lead to $10,000 in fines and up to ten years in prison.

Possession of larger amounts of ecstasy result in more severe consequences, and people who are found with over 400 grams of MDMA in their possession can be sentenced to life in prison if convicted.
