The charge will be based upon the weight determined by the DPS Crime Laboratory inclusive of ALL adulterants and dilutants, minus the weight of the bag.

From the Health and Safety Code: "(5) "Controlled substance" means a substance, including a drug, an adulterant, and a dilutant, listed in Schedules I through V or Penalty Group 1, 1-A, 2, 2-A, 3, or 4. The term includes the aggregate weight of any mixture, solution, or other substance containing a controlled substance."

And yes, depending on circumstances, a four-gram bag can indeed be the basis for asserting possession with intent to deliver.
