Manufacture / delivery penalty group 1 controlled substance under 1 gram. Then, manufacture / delivery penalty groups 3 & 4 controlled substance in an amount over 28 gram and under 200 grams. Then, manufacture / delivery of group 3 & 4 controlled substance under 28 grams.
Different drugs fall under different groups for purposes of punishment. The punishment is also affected by the amount of drugs.
Re PG1 under 28 grams: a state jail felony.
Re PG 3 / 4: a state jail felony if the amount of the controlled substance to which the offense applies is, by aggregate weight, including adulterants or dilutants, less than 28 grams.
And a felony of the second degree if the amount of the controlled substance to which the offense applies is, by aggregate weight, including adulterants or dilutants, 28 grams or more but less than 200 grams.
These are the punishments for a first offender - no enhancements. Punishments would run concurrently - at the same time. So, the maximum time faced is 20 years.
This person needs a lawyer.
Delivery of controlled substance. The PG refers to penalty group. The first one is a state jail felony. I think the second one is a misdemeanor. Those are usually pills. Not sure on the third one. You can look in the health and safety code.

As noted above, the max punishment for the highest level offense is 20 years. All of the cases should proceed together and should run concurrently if time is ordered. Probation is also possible. This person needs an attorney immediately.

All good answers. Be aware that a prior felony conviction will bump the punishment range up to 5-99 years and a second and separate felony conviction will bump the punishment range up to a minimum of 25 years.
