Texas Marijuana Laws
While many states across the nation are decriminalizing marijuana as a schedule I drug, it is still seen as an illegal drug federally and in the state of Texas. 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.
For example, possession of .25 or less ounces of marijuana is a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to 1 year in prison and up to $4,000 in fines. 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.
