In Texas, Even A Simple Possession Charge Can Land You In Jail

Drug penalties are famously harsh in Texas. You may find yourself facing a mandatory prison sentence and a fine ranging into the thousands of dollars for even a minor offense. Simple possession of 2 ounces or less of marijuana can land you in jail for up to 180 days and result in a fine of $2,000, while other drug charges can constitute a felony. Without the assistance of a knowledgeable lawyer, you may be facing significant penalties.
