Marijuana Cultivation in Plano
Experienced Drug Crime Defense
While the debate surrounding the use and legalization of marijuana ("weed")
rages on, Texas maintains a firm stance on enforcing extremely harsh
drug crime laws. As Texas is a state that does not approve of the medicinal use of
cannabis, it views any
possession, distribution, and sale of marijuana or marijuana paraphernalia as an
explicitly illegal offense. Local law enforcement agencies and prosecutors
also come down hard on those charged with marijuana cultivation.
If you or your loved one has recently been arrested and/or charged with
the cultivation of marijuana or with operating a grow house, allow our
firm's Plano criminal defense attorneys to fight aggressively on your
behalf to shield you from potentially devastating criminal penalties.
Penalties for the Cultivation of Marijuana
The charges and penalties you may face for marijuana cultivation vary considerably.
Prosecutors will pay particular attention to the amount of marijuana or
plants allegedly in your possession and whether you may have prior criminal
convictions. Under Texas Law, marijuana cultivation charges range from
misdemeanor offenses to the most serious first-degree felonies.
2 Ounces or Less: Class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days imprisonment
2 to 4 Ounces: Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year imprisonment
4 Ounces to 5 Pounds: State jail felony, penalized by up to two years imprisonment
5 Pounds to 50 Pounds: Third-degree felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison
50 to 2,000 Pounds: Second-degree felony, penalized by up to 20 years in prison
2,000 Pounds or More: First-degree felony, incarceration ranging from five to 99 years or life
In addition to large fines and criminal records, these harsh sentencing
guidelines make it clear that Texas takes marijuana drug crimes seriously.
When handling these cases, our legal team draws from decades of collective
experience, Attorney Jason Zendeh Del's experience as a former prosecutor,
and our unswerving commitment to clients to challenge the prosecution's
case. In certain cases, alternative resolutions may also be obtained as
a way to preserve your freedom.
