If you, your child or someone you know has been charged possession of marijuana related in Houston, Galveston, Fort Bend or Brazoria County you probably have many questions. With the growing number of states legalizing marijuana many people are surprised by the arrest and then minimize the consequences that can accompany the offense if they are convicted. We are often told stories by individuals who report that officers had found marijuana on them in the past and merely confiscated it and gave them a warning. In spite of these stories or experiences in Houston possession of marijuana is a crime that is regularly prosecuted and if you fail to take it seriously it can have impact your futures in very serious ways.
If your child has been arrested for possession of marijuana do not use the criminal justice system to teach them a lesson. A conviction can adversely affect the rest of their life, impacting their ability to receive financial aid and limiting their future job prospects. Your child may have made a mistake and may have problems that need to be addressed but a criminal record will not be helpful in addressing those issues.
If you or a loved one has been accused of possessing marijuana you need an experienced criminal defense attorney.
