CBD arrests continue despite changes in law

People in Texas continue to face severe prosecutions for drug offenses even as a growing number of jurisdictions across the country move toward legalization of cannabis products. Many people use CBD oil or other hemp-based derivatives for their medical and other therapeutic effects. These concentrates do not contain a significant amount of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana that produces a high. Still, they can contain enough remnants in order to produce a positive test. This has left many CBD products in a legal limbo, even after changes in the 2018 federal farm bill that appear to have legalized the products.

Police in Texas discover marijuana during routine traffic stop

A routine traffic stop in Texas on May 16 led to the discovery of what police described as a "large amount" of marijuana. The 30-year-old Mississippi man who was behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Tahoe SUV involved has been charged with possessing less than 2 ounces of marijuana and possessing between 4 and 400 grams of a controlled substance. He was also cited for driving without a valid driver's license. His bond has been set at $4,500, according to media accounts of the incident.

Texas man arrested the day after he was put on probation

A 19-year-old man was taken into custody by police in Brown County on May 8 just one day after he was placed on probation for a misdemeanor drug charge. The man has been charged with aggravated robbery and is being held at a local detention facility in lieu of a $100,000 bond according to media reports. He is accused of attempting to rob the apartment of a Buffview man during the early morning hours of May 7 to obtain marijuana to sell on the street. His 24-year-old alleged accomplice has also been taken into custody.

Some claim ketosis can cause DUI false positives

A Texas attorney who got a man's DUI charge dropped even though a breath test showed him well above the legal alcohol limit says it happened because of the man's low-carb diet. According to the attorney, ketosis resulting from the low-carb diet caused the false positive.

Rewritten Texas bill reduces marijuana possession penalties

A bill that would have completely removed penalties associated with possessing small amounts of marijuana in Texas has been amended. Initially, the bill was intended to decriminalize possession of small amounts of cannabis. However, this piece of legislation was rewritten just before it was set to be heard by the state House of Representatives.
