A breath test for pot raises legal concerns

Drunk driving charges are serious business in Texas, and a conviction can lead to license suspension or license revocation, significant fines and jail time, among other penalties. A driver can be charged with an offense owing to his or her level of impairment based on objective evidence presented by a law enforcement official or charged with a per se DWI based on the driver's blood alcohol content or blood alcohol concentration. DWI laws also apply to what is often called 'drugged driving." Currently, there are no breath tests available to law enforcement for the detection of drugs, but that soon may be changing.

A DUI charge could prevent you from getting to work

In Texas, being found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of more than 0.08% when operating a vehicle could lead to a license suspension for between 90 days and one year, even if you have never been charged with a DUI before. This can be especially worrying if you, like most people, depend on your drivers' license to get to and from work.

Texas marijuana enforcement inconsistent after hemp legalization

In June 2019, hemp production became legal. Law enforcement agencies, however, lack an easy way to differentiate between hemp and marijuana. The situation has resulted in inconsistent enforcement of marijuana laws throughout the state. Some law enforcement agencies continue to cite people for possessing marijuana and sometimes arrest them. In other communities, law enforcement leaders have chosen to largely ignore marijuana.

4 people arrested for meth, heroin, cocaine, marijuana in Texas

An apartment complex in Tyler was the scene of a drug raid in late August. Narcotics investigators in Henderson County had targeted the home of a 53-year-old woman. According to the Henderson County Sheriff, she had been arrested the week before in a different town and found to have one-quarter pound of methamphetamine in her possession. At her Tyler location, authorities reported seizing another half pound of methamphetamine, heroin, marijuana and a substance believed to be cocaine. The woman now faces charges of manufacturing and delivering controlled substances. The court set her bond at $50,000, and she remains jailed in the Smith County Jail.
