Texas Takes Marijuana Seriously

Unlike many other states in the U.S., Texas still regards all forms of marijuana as illegal. In the context of Texas law, possession refers to an individual who has marijuana in his "care, custody, control, or management." As such, whether or not the substance belongs to you, you can still be held accountable if police find it in your car or residence.

For legal purposes, marijuana includes any type or part of a cannabis plant, including leaves and seeds. Similar to other drug charges in Texas, the penalty for possession is determined by the amount of marijuana found in your car, home, or on your person. Our marijuana defense attorney provides this chart so you can know what punishment you may be facing:

Possession Charge Maximum Penalty
Up to 2 ounces Class B Misdemeanor 180 days in jail, $2,000 fine
2 - 4 ounces Class A Misdemeanor 1 year in jail, $4,000 fine
4 ounces - 5 pounds State Jail Felony 2 years in jail, $10,000 fine
5 - 50 pounds Third Degree Felony 10 years in prison, $10,000 fine
50 - 2,000 pounds Second Degree Felony 20 years in prison, $10,000 fine
More than 2,000 pounds First Degree Felony Life in prison, $50,000 fine

Criminal Convictions Carry Collateral Consequences

The direct penalties of a marijuana conviction are not all you have to worry about. In addition to potential jail time and fines, you can face serious, long-lasting repercussions if convicted for possession of any amount of marijuana. These include:

Driver's License Suspension

If you are 21 years of age or older, your driver's license can be automatically suspended for six months upon conviction. For those under 21 years of age at the time of arrest, this suspension can increase to a full year.

Career Prospects

A conviction on your record can be easily found by a potential employer. Many employers consider any type of drug conviction to be an automatic disqualification for employment.

Loans and Leases

A criminal record can also prevent you from receiving student loans or maintaining current financial aid. These blemishes on your record can even impact an apartment lease.
