Marijuana Defense in Texas

Recreational use of marijuana has become legal in various states, and could
soon expand to even more in the near future. In Texas, however, recreational
use of marijuana is still considered a serious crime associated with harsh
penalties, such as lengthy jail/prison sentences, expensive fines, and
a permanent mark on your criminal record.

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.
