Marijuana Possession in Texas
The State of Texas takes marijuana possession charges seriously, and so should you. Depending on many factors, including the amount of marijuana seized and an individual’s prior criminal history, felony drug or distribution charges may be filed.
For example, if you are arrested with less than two ounces of marijuana, you may face Class B Misdemeanor criminal charges. Possession of two to four ounces of marijuana is classified as a Class A Misdemeanor, while possession of over four ounces of marijuana is a felony offense in Texas.
Considering the fact that the marijuana possession charges could easily result in a drug conviction, significant fines and jail or prison time, you want an experienced Austin criminal defense attorney who will take your marijuana case seriously and defend you like it was their own.
