Legal Answers
1 Questions Answered

Q. Can you be jailed if found overdosing on drugs such as heroin or cocaine in Texas?
A: Unfortunately yes. Any possession of drug paraphernalia or controlled substances can result in an arrest. Even if a crime scene is free of both, you could be arrested for a mental heath warrant as a danger to yourself or others. If you struggle with addiction, please seek help at a local facility for your health and wellness and to avoid any future legal issues.
