Legal Services for Clients Facing Drug Possession and Other Offenses in Fort Bend and Harris Counties 

From drug trafficking to drug possession and manufacturing, drug crimes have gained excessive attention over the years. Marijuana, for instance, has gained much attention over the past decade to a point that other states have legalized its use for recreational purposes. Other states also recognize its use but only for medicinal purposes. 

Aside from marijuana, other examples of commonly abused drugs include:

  • Cocaine
  • Ecstasy
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine

Drug convictions commonly have severe consequences, with federal drug charges known to be more ruthless than statutory laws. The punishment could range from deportation to loss of custody of children, loss of residency, probation, hefty fines, or community service. 

Is it Illegal to Possess Marijuana in Texas?

Yes. Although neighboring states like Oklahoma and Arkansas have legalized medical cannabis, Texas continues to outlaw the possession of marijuana regardless of the purpose. The prohibition applies to all parts of the Cannabis Sativa plant such as dried leaves, shredded buds, or even seeds. It also does not matter whether the marijuana is living or dead.
