Moore County is only a few hours’ drive from Colorado. Residents can drive to Colorado, legally purchase marijuana and return home within a short time. You may have been able to legally purchase the plant in another state, but having it in Texas is illegal.

Texas takes a tough stance against those accused of marijuana crimes. Being caught with even the smallest amount of the substance is enough to have you arrested. It’s advised you immediately contact legal representation if you or someone you love have been charged or arrested for a marijuana crime.

Marijuana Defense

Texas has one of the highest arrest rates for marijuana in the nation. This means good people are having their lives turned upside down for a crime relating to a plant. The criminal penalties for marijuana crimes can be severe. You could spend time behind bars and be required to pay a fine costing up to six figures.

David Sloane has successfully defended hundreds of clients of marijuana offenses across Texas. Some of the crimes he defends include:

  • Marijuana possession
  • Possession over 4 ounces
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Marijuana DWI
  • Delivery of marijuana
  • Marijuana cultivation
  • Trafficking marijuana
  • Felony marijuana crimes
  • Federal marijuana crimes
  • Possession of THC concentrates and edibles
  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Arrest of out of state visitors
  • Illegal searches
  • Asset forfeiture

Beyond state charges, you could also be looking at federal marijuana charges if you’re busted. Marijuana is still completely illegal at the federal level. Federal authorities typically focus on larger busts of grow operations and drug trafficking, but they have jurisdiction over all marijuana offenses.

Federal marijuana charges tend to carry harsher sentences than state charges. It is especially recommended you contact an experienced attorney if you are charged with committing a federal marijuana offense.
