Recreational use of marijuana has become legal in various states, and could soon expand to even more in the near future.

Texas Marijuana Penalties

In Texas, possession of even a small amount of marijuana can result in a jail sentence. Anything less than two ounces results in a conviction punishable by a maximum jail sentence of 180 days and a fine of up to $2,000. Possession of concentrates, such as hash oil, can be charged with a felony that is punishable by a maximum prison sentence of two years.

The sale of only seven grams of marijuana is punishable by 180 days in jail and a maximum fine of $2,000. The sale of more than 50 pounds of cannabis is considered a first-degree felony, punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 99 years, with a mandatory minimum sentence of five years.
