Although marijuana is becoming legal in more and more states and may even be legal in Texas some day as things currently stand the penalties for marijuana include possible jail time, drivers license suspension, you become ineligible for financial aid, and you could end up with a criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life. You may personally believe that being in possession of a small amount of marijuana for personal use should be legal in Texas, I may even believe that, but as the law currently stands it is not legal. Additionally, prosecutors working for Harris County will prosecute you if you are caught with marijuana and cases will not be dismissed simply because its “just marijuana.”
Setting aside the morality and the arguments about what should or should not be legal if you are arrested for possession of marijuana your focus needs to be on minimizing the impact of your arrest and protecting your future.

Just because they found marijuana does not mean that you will get convicted. That must show that you were in possession of the marijuana, that they did not violate your rights when they found the marijuana, and that it was a usable amount of marijuana.
