Being charged with marijuana possession is something that shouldn’t
be taken lightly. In Texas, marijuana possession will at least be charged
as a Class B misdemeanor (if you were caught with 2 ounces or less). Most
minor possession charges are not the end of the world, though you do want
to see a lawyer to learn about your legal defense options. Misdemeanor
charges can still cost you a lot of money and in more rare cases, send
you to jail. Your driver’s license can also be suspended for up
to six months following a possession conviction. If you need your driver’s
license for your work, this can be disastrous.
Consequences of a Marijuana Possession Charge
With a first offense for the possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana,
a deal can often be worked out. If you show that you are willing to admit
your fault and agree to entering a drug treatment program or do community
service, you will probably be able to work out a good deal or even get
your case dismissed.
If you have a marijuana addiction, you should definitely admit to this
and agree to drug treatment. This can help get you a better plea bargain deal.
What you really want to achieve is not to get a permanent criminal record.
A permanent record can have a serious impact on your life. An experienced
attorney can help you with setting up a strategy that will increase the
chances of getting a good deal and your case being dismissed.
