Multiple people taken into custody on drug charges

Authorities in Paris, Texas, took five people into custody after a drug raid at a home on 6th Street N.E. During a search of the property, police found cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine in addition to guns and drug paraphernalia. A 29-year-old man, a 28-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man were all charged with manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance. They were also charged with possession of marijuana and endangering a child.

The meaning behind unlawful possession

Some Texas residents may hear the term "possession charge" and be confused about the exact nature of the offense. Criminal possession normally means the offender has something of an illegal nature in their control. In some circumstances, however, it can refer to a generally legal substance that's actually illegal for the offender to possess.

2 people detained on drug-related charges

On March 2 in Texas, sheriff's deputies took two people into custody after seizing more than 12 pounds of tetrahydrocannabinol and nearly 500 pounds of marijuana from their recreational vehicle after they stopped it for speeding. The incident occurred around 12:40 p.m. on U.S. 287 South near Loop 11.

Views on cannabis use slowly changing in Texas

The Compassionate Use Act enables people suffering from some forms of epilepsy to access low-THC cannabis for medical purposes without breaking drug laws. Although the state has started to embrace the medicinal use of cannabis, legislation to expand the legality of the substance has stalled among lawmakers. Two bills designed to reduce criminal charges and expand medicinal access, despite their bipartisan support, failed to pass.

Women accused of drug charges after police brutality allegations

Police in Texas have responded to a social media post alleging that excessive force was used against two women when they were arrested on the basis of drug charges. The social media post spread widely after one of the women posted photos of bruises on her arm after police reportedly reached into her car and physically pulled her out of the vehicle.
