Texas Marijuana Delivery Laws
Any drug delivery/sale/distribution charge in Texas is considered a serious
participation in a larger drug economy. While marijuana is kept separate
from the Texas controlled substance groups, a marijuana delivery conviction
can still yield serious penalties for the accused.
Maximum penalties for marijuana delivery in Texas can include:
- .25 ounce or less - one year in county jail, $4,000 in fines
- More than .25 ounce/less than 5 lbs. - two years in jail, $10,000 in fines
- More than 5 lbs./less than 50 lbs. - 20 years in prison, $10,000 in fines
- More than 50 lbs./less than 2,000 lbs. - 99 years in prison, $10,000 in fines
- More than 2,000 lbs. - 99 years in prison, $100,000 in fines
Please note that these are maximum penalties and, with experienced, knowledgeable
counsel in your corner, reduced penalties and dismissals can be capably
pursued. To start exploring your marijuana delivery defense options, contact
