Collin County LSD (Acid) Crimes Attorney
If you have been charged with an LSD or acid (the street name for LSD) crime, you need legal representation. Texas has very strict drug laws: an LSD crime is a felony.
The medical community has tried, to no avail, to get LSD reclassified because of some of the therapeutic benefits the drug may offer. Texas still currently lists LSD as a Schedule I drug, which means it has no legally approved medical use.
You may have made a one-time mistake involving LSD or you may be struggling with drug addiction. Either way, if you have been charged with an LSD crime, you need to contact an LSD crimes attorney right away.
At Rosenthal Barbieri, we have many years of experience fighting for the rights of the citizens in our community. Our firm was voted as the best law firm in McKinney because we get results.

What are the Consequences of Being Convicted of LSD Possession?
As a Schedule 1A drug in Texas, LSD is considered to be unique among illegal drugs. Where most Schedule 1 drugs are sold by weight, acid is sold by the dose in what are known as “abuse units.”
LSD doses are often delivered on paper tabs, but can also be distributed in a variety of other ways. The amount of LSD in your possession when you were arrested will determine the penalty you are facing:
- Fewer than 20 doses: state jail felony, punishable by 180 days to two years in jail.
- 20 to 80 doses: 2nd-degree felony, punishable by two to 20 years in prison.
- 80 to 4,000 doses: 1st-degree felony, punishable by five years up to a life sentence.
- 4,000 or more doses: 1st-degree felony punishable by no less than 15 years in prison and up to a life sentence.
Along with facing jail time, you may deal with additional consequences if you’re convicted of a felony LSD crime. These penalties can have a lasting impact. Working with an attorney is the best way to ensure the repercussions of your drug charge are not lifelong. Other penalties associated with felony LSD convictions may include:
- Large fines
- Employment restrictions
- Loss of the right to own a firearm
- Loss of the right to vote
- Loss of the right to child custody
- The requirement to pay court costs
If you are arrested for possession of LSD near a school, playground, or other sensitive areas, you may face escalated charges. Prosecutors often seek to upgrade charges to the next felony degree for those arrested in restricted zones. Your attorney may be able to prevent an escalation of your charges or may even have them reduced.
Criminal Charges Associated with LSD Use
As it can often be tough for prosecutors to convict someone on non-violent drug charges, they routinely try to add charges that are easier to get a conviction for. At Rosenthal Barbieri, our experienced LSD crime lawyers have handled many trials and can assist you with any charges that are related to your acid arrest. Additional charges our firm can assist with include:
- LSD paraphernalia
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Manufacture or delivery of LSD leading to death or serious bodily injury
- Drug-free zone arrests
- Federal LSD charges
All charges related to LSD here in Texas are serious and cases must be dealt with by experienced legal teams. Hire an attorney with a successful track record in order to have peace of mind knowing your case is being handled properly.
How Can a Lawyer Defend Me?
After decades of taking on countless felony drug cases, our firm has been able to establish tested and trusted defense tactics that can see great success. We are keenly aware of every standard law enforcement is held to during the evidence gathering process, which means that we can spot misconduct swiftly.
At Rosenthal Barbieri we have achieved favorable outcomes for a number of clients using a variety of strategies, options for your defense may be to:
- File a motion to suppress evidence: If your rights were violated in any way while evidence was seized, our team can seek to have any evidence supplied illegally removed from the trial.
- Seek a dismissal of charges: If a motion to suppress evidence is successful, all charges may be dismissed.
- Produce evidence to support reasonable doubt at trial: Our team may be able to prove that you came into the possession of LSD unintentionally or unknowingly. If you share a property with other individuals, for example, it may be proven that the LSD in your possession does not actually belong to you, which could lead to a winning defense strategy.
- Pursue enrollment in a Texas drug court program: Many counties across the state are required to offer drug treatment as an alternative to jail for first-time drug offenders.
