Texas Marijuana Laws

While some forms of CBD are legal for medical purposes, at large even a small amount of marijuana can lead to serious penalties depending on the amount found on one person.

However, possession of 5 to 50 pounds of the substance is a third-degree felony, and possible conviction penalties include up to 10 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
