Classification of Charges

The perceived threat that one might pose to society increases based upon the amount of marijuana in his or her possession. The charges, therefore, are similarly escalated. Texas classifies marijuana possession charges according to the following amounts:

  • Class B Misdemeanor: Less than or up to 2 ounces
  • Class A Misdemeanor: 2-4 ounces
  • State Jail Felony: 4 ounces- 5 pounds
  • 3rd Degree Felony: 5-50 pounds
  • 2nd Degree Felony: 50-2,000 pounds
  • Enhanced 1st Degree Felony: More than 2,000 pounds

Despite the wide range in these types of charges, each can leave a lasting mark on your future. No matter the allegations that you are dealing with, it will be helpful to talk through your questions, concerns, and rights with a knowledgeable lawyer.
