Penalties for marijuana reflect its dangerous potential

Many advocates of marijuana have scoffed at the notion that it is a so-called gateway drug which will inevitably lead to the use and abuse of harder drugs. While its legalization for medical purposes has proven beneficial in some states, the evidence remains that it is linked to increased likelihood of heroin and cocaine use.

Defining theft in the state of Texas

In the state of Texas, theft is defined as taking property coupled with an intent to deprive its true owner of it. An individual may also commit theft when he or she takes something from another person that is known to be stolen. A theft may be committed regardless of the value of the item that is taken, but the actual charge against a person may vary depending on at item's value.

Do you understand the marijuana possession laws in Texas?

Many people do not realize how much the state of Texas frowns upon the possession of marijuana. Even possessing small amounts of the substance may result in severe legal penalties that can affect you for the many years. Although some states have legalized the medical and recreational use of marijuana, Texas is not one of them and currently decriminalizes the use, sale or possession of the substance.
