Marijuana, Thankfully Illegal in Texas

Although the dangerous drug known as marijuana is becoming legal in some areas, in the State of Texas possession of any amount of marijuana is still a jailable offense no matter the amount of the narcotic in your possession during an encounter with law enforcement.

People smoke marijuana for a number of reasons. Some of the reasons people use marijuana are listed below.

  • To get high, or intoxicated off the drug.
  • To fit in or to adhere to peer pressure.
  • To satisfy a dependency on THC.
  • To rebel, and act like a child.

Being charged with possession of marijuana is a criminal offense, however, if you are busted with small amounts of weed then you may avoid a lengthy jail sentence and will likely be home in a day or two depending on the details of the crime, and other crimes that may have been committed at the time.

Although a minor marijuana drug offense may not seem like much, its always a smart idea to work with a lawyer to find out what your options are in the event that you decide to fight to charge to keep it off your background.
