The Various Marijuana Crimes in Texas

Because of its common nature, marijuana is penalized differently from other drug crimes, though the offenses are largely the same.

Texas marijuana violations include:

  • Possession: Either a misdemeanor or felony charge with a maximum of up to 99 years in prison and up to $50,000 in fines (though small amounts are much lower)
  • Sale: These charges can vary between misdemeanor and felony depending on who you sell to, where you sell it, and how much you sell. This also includes gifting, or transferring possession with no remuneration in exchange
  • Cultivation: These laws feature the same penalties as possession
  • Hash/Concentrates: Possession and/or manufacture of these substances is a felony and can net you up to life in prison if you are found with more than 400 grams as well as a $50,000 fine
  • Possession of Paraphernalia: Possession of things like blunt papers, water pipes, and other drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor, while selling them without authorization is a felony

In addition to the penalties of prison time and fines, penalties in Texas can also include an automatic suspension of your driver’s license. This is true for any drug offense or an offense under the Controlled Substances Act.
