Yes, your text messages can be used against you.  Unless you were never caught with any marijuana, and nobody arrested for dealing with you was caught with any marijuana, the empty bag probably won't help you.

This is a very serious charge, and you need an attorney to defend you.  The prosecutor wants to send you to jail, and he or she tries cases like yours in court for a living.  You do not want to go one on one with the prosecutor.
