You likely then have 2 charges: Misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor posssession of marijuana. You'll be arraigned at one of the 15 misdemeanor courts in Harris County, which means the prosecutor will tell the judge a shortened version of the facts they claim they can prove, and the judge will determine if there is probable cause to continue with your case (99% of the time, they do). The judge will then reset your case for discovery to be collected and either a plea or trial to commence some months down the road. You need to get yourself a criminal lawyer --it's always good to have one on the first court setting. Make sure they are familiar with how Harris County operates. Many excellent defense lawyers in town will offer you free consultations. Call a few and then hire the one you believe can help you and your case.
They are just going to ask you if you have a lawyer. If you dont, they will give you time to hire one. Get an attorney ASAP.
