Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

Texas Marijuana Laws Explained

Many people don’t fully understand the legal ramifications of their actions until it’s too late. Only after a marijuana arrest will you suddenly wish you’d had Texas marijuana laws explained to you.

At first, you may believe marijuana possession isn’t that serious and you’ll only get a slap on the wrist. However, the state of Texas takes a harsher stance toward marijuana crimes than most other states. Read on for a look at the penalties for marijuana crimes in Texas.

Texas Marijuana Crimes and Punishments

Possession and sale are the two major marijuana-related crimes in Texas. For a breakdown of Texas marijuana crimes and charges, see the table below:

ChargeClassification

Possession of between two and four ouncesClass A misdemeanor
Possession of between four ounces and five poundsState jail felony
Possession of five to fifty poundsThird-degree felony
Possession of fifty to 2,000 poundsSecond-degree felony
Possession of over 2,000 poundsFive to ninety-nine years or life

Sale of between five and fifty poundsSecond-degree felony

Keep in mind that some of the penalties for the above crimes can vary if aggravating factors are present. For example, if you sell to minors or are caught with marijuana on a school campus, your penalties may increase.
