Charged with Marijuana Possession in Houston?
Fort Bend County Drug Crime Lawyers

in Harris and Fort Bend Counties and throughout Houston take a tough stance
against drug crimes, and if you have been charged with possession of marijuana,
your future may be at stake. Even a minor amount of marijuana found in
your possession can result in six months in jail. Punishments are based
on the weight of the drug that is found in the defendant's possession.

drug possession or possession with intent to
deliver, you should not hesitate to speak with the Houston criminal defense lawyer

avoid penalties including:

- The stigma of having a conviction on your criminal record
Medical Marijuana Laws in Texas
Even if you are a legal user of medical marijuana from another state, you
will not be able to bring it into the state of Texas. This state does
not recognize any type of medical marijuana and therefore, a medical card
or doctor's note is not a valid defense. If you are arrested while
possessing marijuana, even with a medical card that is valid in another
state, you will need to receive the strong defense that we offer.
Call us at once to get started.
