Dallas Marijuana Lawyer

Let Berlof & Newton, P.C. Handle Your Marijuana Charge

If you’ve been arrested for possession of marijuana, or delivery of marijuana in Texas, it’s important that you have legal representation who has extensive experience handling marijuana-related charges. Though marijuana is legal for recreational and medical use in many other states, possession of marijuana, in any usable quantity, is still a criminal offense under the current Texas law. There’s no such thing as “legal weed”! This is why you need a lawyer on your side who will fight to make certain that your legal interests are protected.

With over four decades of combined experience representing numerous clients in a wide variety of criminal charges, including marijuana possession and delivery, Berlof & Newton, P.C. stands ready to help.

At Berlof & Newton, P.C., we are committed to providing you with aggressive representation in court designed to seek the best possible outcome.

Below are the various marijuana charges we handle:

  • Possession of a marijuana under two ounces
  • Possession of a marijuana more than two ounces less than four ounces

  • Possession of a marijuana in a drug-free zone (all levels of offense)
  • Delivery of marijuana (all levels of offense)
  • All other types of felony and misdemeanor marijuana cases

What Are The Different Classifications of Marijuana Charges?

The seriousness of any given marijuana charge is determined by the alleged weight of the cannabis seized, whether you’re charged with possession or delivery of the drug (i.e., being a “drug dealer”), and, in some cases, your prior criminal history. For example, in Texas, possession of less than two ounces of marijuana is a class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days in the county jail, and a fine not to exceed $2000. At the other end of the spectrum, delivery of more than 2000 pounds is a first-degree felony, punishable by a minimum of 10 years in prison (you could receive life!) and a fine of up to $100,000.

Is “Weed” Legal in Texas?

As stated above, possession of marijuana is illegal in Texas for any purpose so long as that amount you’re alleged to possess is a “usable quantity.” At present, Texas law does not allow for recreational use. Additionally, Texas law does not provide for the lawful use of medical marijuana or the marijuana plant for any medicinal purpose.
