Penalties for Possession of Marijuana

One of the most common cases that we see at our firm is possession of marijuana cases. While many individuals might dismiss these charges as "no big deal," we encourage you to reconsider. Just take a look at some of the penalties.

If you are convicted of possessing marijuana in Texas, you can face the following penalties:

  • For a Class B offense (0 - 2 ounces): Up to 180 days in jail
  • For a Class A offense (2 - 4 ounces): Up to 1 year in jail
  • For a state jail felony offense (4 ounces - 5 pounds): 6 to 24 months in state jail
  • For a 3rd Degree offense (5 pounds - 50 pounds): 2 to 10 years in prison
  • For a 2nd Degree offense (50 pounds - 2000 pounds): 2 to 20 years in prison

A simple marijuana conviction can result in a long jail sentence, hefty fines, and may even cause to lose your driving privileges.
