No Texas Law against Growing Marijuana… But It’s Still a Crime

Drug Crimes | Marijuana

Even though there are no specific marijuana cultivation laws in Texas at this time, don’t just assume that you can do it without any repercussions.

How is that possible if there is no actual law here against cultivation? To understand, we first need to define “cultivation” itself.

What It Means to Cultivate Marijuana in Texas

Acts That Can Lead to a Texas Harassment Charge

Sex Crimes | Sexual Harassment

Are you or someone you know facing harassment charges in Texas? A conviction can have long lasting consequences that you will want to avoid, including the potential of fines and jail time.

Harassment can take several different forms under Texas law. Texas Penal Code §42.07 states that an individual commits the offense of harassment when he or she acts with intent to harass, embarrass, torment, alarm, abuse or annoy someone else.

That’s a pretty broad definition. In fact, it’s possible that you may have engaged in behavior that qualifies as harassment without realizing it. With this post, we hope to explain the act of harassment a bit better so that people can understand what not do to – or [...]
