Proven Local Counsel For Marijuana-Related Offenses
Oklahoma, Colorado and other states across the country may be loosening their restrictions on marijuana use; however, Texas marijuana laws are still among the most strict in the nation. You can jeopardize your future when you transport marijuana and other consumables infused with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) across state lines.
Police and highway patrol officers have dramatically increased traffic stops along Highway 287 and 380, trying to prevent individuals from bringing cannabis oils and THC-laced edibles and drinks into the state. Whether you are an out-of-state driver or a Texas resident charged with a drug offense, it is critical to work with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. The legal team at Law Offices of Steven Williams is ready and equipped to help.
We Aggressively Challenge Cannabis And Edibles Charges
Our attorney has more than 40 years of trial experience in Texas. We use this background when we advise you of your best options and develop an aggressive defensive strategy.
Steven Williams is licensed to represent you in misdemeanor and felony charges related to:
- Possession of marijuana
- Possession of cannabis oils, edibles or beverages containing THC
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Cannabis trafficking
Because THC is a concentrated form of marijuana, the penalties attached to possession, distribution or trafficking are more severe than penalties connected to marijuana offenses. While possessing up to 4 ounces of marijuana flower or bud is a misdemeanor violation, possessing 4 ounces of a THC-infused edible is a felony offense.
The chocolates, brownies, gummies, hard candies and other edibles that contain THC are often heavier than marijuana leaves that are smoked. If you are caught with these edibles in your possession, you will be charged for the edible’s total weight. The maximum fine for even small amounts of THC is $10,000 and a 180-day mandatory minimum sentence.
You can depend on us to explore all legal options when we represent you. We know the stakes are high in drug cases which is why we take action from day one.
