Irving Drug Lawyer
If you are accused of an offense relating to drugs/marijuana than the seriousness the charges you may be facing will increase depending on the type of drug, the amount of the drug you were caught with, and the intended use that you have for it. In the case of marijuana, if you have 4 ounces or less you will typically be facing a misdemeanor charge. Progressively larger amounts will lead to felony charges being brought which will lead to significant time in jail and large fines.

Whilst marijuana has experienced some measure of acceptance in certain states, in Texas you will find that judges still prosecute cases involving this drug to the fullest extent of the law. One little-known consequence is that tax must be paid on all illegal drugs, and you may also face a tax bill or charge of tax evasion in addition to any other penalties you incur. Other drugs for example cocaine, meth, etc will be an automatic felony charge even if very small amounts are found.
