Texas Possession of Marijuana Laws

Aside from the extremely limited ability of patients with severe cases of epilepsy to use cannabis oil in treatment, Texas does not allow for any legal use of marijuana. Instead, it criminalizes even the smallest levels of possession all the way up to distribution levels:

Consequences for these crimes increase greatly as you move from misdemeanor to felony. Jail time ranges from 180 days to a life sentence; fines range from up to $2,000 to up to $50,000. Moreover, you could potentially face state and federal charges at the same time, which could lead to multiple sentences that combine to make consequences even harsher.

Some Marijuana Possession Charges Eligible for Diversion

Fort Worth’s First Offender Drug Program is a limited-supervision diversion program that offers certain first-time drug offenders the opportunity to keep their record clean.
