DFW Law Enforcement Shift from Marijuana to Meth

Drug Crimes | Marijuana | Meth

There is evidence that police in the Dallas/Fort Worth area are moving away from crimes related to marijuana and shifting focus to a more problematic drug: methamphetamines.

Recently, the Dallas police chief announced that he is in favor of officers not arresting those found in possession of two ounces or less of marijuana. Around the same time, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) made a huge $45 million bust of methamphetamines in Dallas.

It’s no secret that methamphetamines are dangerous drugs. Their consequences extend from personal self-destruction to society at large. The methamphetamine laws throughout Texas reflect that gravity.

Here are the current facts for drug crimes involving methamphetamines in Texas, including possession, trafficking, and manufacture, plus the state’s [...]

Will 2021 Be the Year Texas Legalizes? Maybe…But Not Yet

Drug Crimes | Marijuana

Many states have legalized marijuana in the last decade, and if some state lawmakers get their way, Texas may soon be added to the list.

The 2021 legislative session has a couple of pre-filled bills that seek to legalize marijuana in the state already on the docket. There are some promising signs that it could happen, especially since Texas legalized industrial hemp cultivation in 2019.

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. In fact, if you are caught cultivating marijuana, penalties range from up to 180 days in jail and up to $2,000 in fines to life in prison and up to $50,000 in fines.

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

Marijuana cultivation occurs when an individual grows or harvests leaves or buds from cannabis plants. The individual might use the plants for medical, medicinal, or personal purposes, or sell and distribute the [...]
