Asked in Federal Crimes and Juvenile Law for Texas

Q: Is it illegal for a drug dealer to sell their client laced drugs without telling them that they are laced?

I’m a 15y.o. girl. Some of my friends are involved in drug use and have told me that their drugs seemed to have been laced with other dangerous drugs. I’m not too familiar with drugs considering I do not use them (and do not want to.) From these stories I have become concerned about their health. There is countless articles about grown adults dying from laced drugs, and it scares me more how much easier it would be to kill someone my age. Put simply, I was wondering if there was any laws regarding selling laced drugs without telling clients that they are laced. I find this somewhat equivalent to stealthing, and maybe even worse considering it can result in death. I want to help my friends because I don’t want some subhuman scum to decieve my friends and end up killing them. On top of that, I wouldn’t know how to get people like that punished without compromising my friends.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.
