Reasonably likely. I can't think of anyone who has never faced a "surprise" visit or drug test and who is on probation in Harris County for a drug offense.
I'm not familiar with the chemical composition of methdoxylin and how it related to methamphetamines but if you are caught with any amount of meth then you would be charged with the entire weight of whatever the meth was in. As an example, if you saw the police coming and dumped a one ounce bag of meth into a water pail containing one gallon of water then you could be charged, convicted, and punished based upon the weight of a gallon of meth.
It does sounds like that you could have had an expert testify as to the correct weights and likely got a different conviction but, again, you have to remember that you get charged with the entire weight of the substance containing the meth (if methdoxylin = mthamphetamines).
However, getting a pretrial diversion for a drug case in Harris County is a very good solution so you probably don't want to complain or appeal.
