You have a schedule that is contained within our health and safety code that provides – you know, there are sub categories but I’d say for the most part, there are about four different levels of drugs and drugs crimes in Texas. And they range from the ones that are obscure where you’re talking about chemicals that are illegal that you don’t see often from one end of the spectrum all the way to the ones that are more prevalent, unfortunately, such as methamphetamine, cocaine. Marijuana contains a separate category on its own that’s one aspect that I guess as society changes and across the United States the prosecution and the arrest and the treatment of marijuana cases is evolving quite rapidly as well.
