The use and sale of marijuana are highly debated topics in the United States. While some states have taken steps to legalize and decriminalize marijuana, Texas remains firm on its stance and continues to strictly penalize offenders.

Penalties For Marijuana Possession In Texas

In Texas, possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana is a Class B misdemeanor; possession of between 2 and 4 ounces of marijuana is a Class A misdemeanor. If convicted, you could serve up to one year in jail and be ordered to pay a fine of up to $4,000.

Possessing more than 4 ounces of marijuana is a felony offense, the degree of which is determined by the exact amount found and other circumstances surrounding the arrest (i.e., if there was an intent to sell or if you were arrested near a school).
