Apparently, UNT has a school policy that first-time possession of marijuana
is given the same punishment as first-time possession of alcohol. That appears rather generous when one compares what the State of Texas will charge you with for possession of marijuana (assuming it is a small amount). In Texas, the first offense for possession of marijuana is a
Class B Misdemeanor
that will be punishable with a maximum sentence of 180 days in county jail.
