Texas has harsh felony penalties for wax, hash and BHO

For the last few years, marijuana concentrates have been increasing in popularity. Unfortunately for those in Texas who are susceptible to trend-following, Texas doesn't look kindly on the possession of marijuana concentrates. Being caught in possession of any amount is considered a felony offense. That means that even if you just have a tiny dab in your pocket to try, thanks to a generous friend, you could be looking at a criminal record that will haunt you for the rest of your life. If you're facing criminal charges for hash, BHO (butane hash oil) or other marijuana concentrates, you need an attorney.

Texas man's death sentence to be re-evaluated

Upon being convicted of a serious felony, many Texas residents might feel that their futures are out of their controls. When a sentence after a conviction is imposed, the feelings of despair and hopelessness may increase. However, it is important for defendants to remember that they are always due fair treatment.

What constitutes a terroristic threat in Texas?

Along with violent crimes, terroristic threats are taken very seriously in Texas. Accordingly, it’s important for you to understand what exactly constitutes a terroristic threat and the types of punishments that may be possible. Depending on the exact circumstances, you could be faced with fines, court costs and even jail time based on the details of the incident in question.

Is your employer hard on recreational marijuana use?

Although Texas has yet to legalize recreational marijuana use, the national trend is leaning in that direction. Many states have legalized marijuana for either medical or recreational use, creating interesting legal scenarios for states that are dragging their feet on the process.

Can you trust a field sobriety test?

Field sobriety tests are frequently used by law enforcement officers in Houston and elsewhere after pulling over a suspected drunk driver. During a field sobriety test, you might be asked to perform such actions as balancing on one leg, walking in a straight line and following simple directions. These actions sound simple enough, but being able to pass a field sobriety test can be anything but simple for some people, even when sober. The result might be a false arrest.
