Texas teens facing felony charges over vaping

Some high school students in Texas are facing serious charges for vaping. After the state raised the legal age for tobacco purchases from 18 to 21, several schools have installed technology to detect vaping and brought in dogs that can allegedly sniff the aroma of vaping. If the dogs or technology find evidence that a student is vaping, he or she could face jail or expulsion from school. The anti-vaping efforts target both nicotine vapes and people who are vaping with THC, an ingredient found in cannabis. These intense pressures have led to a 300% increase in students facing discipline for infractions related to tobacco.

Texas police seize drugs, car and gun in narcotics raid

Police in Texas seized a significant quantity of marijuana and took three suspects into custody on Dec. 12 when they executed a search warrant in Brazos County. According to media reports, a 28-year-old man, a 33-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman face a raft of charges in connection with the bust including drug possession and delivery of a controlled substance in an area designated as a drug-free zone. The College Station Police Department says that the operation marked the end of an investigation that began several months ago.

Dallas Cowboys player charged with drug possession

A routine traffic stop in Texas on the evening of Dec. 3 led to drug possession and tampering charges for a National Football League star. Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Antwaun Woods faces a felony count of tampering with evidence and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. He has also been charged with possessing drug paraphernalia. In addition to criminal sanctions, the 26-year-old athlete faces the possibility of a long suspension from the NFL. He is widely considered to be one of the game's best interior run defenders.

How could a DWI in Texas affect my life?

A DWI is a relatively common offense. This is unfortunate, because driving while under the influence of alcohol is very dangerous, and it can risk the lives of both the driver and other individuals on the road. Due to the frequent occurrence of DWI charges, many believe that being subject to one will not have a significant effect on their lives. However, this is simply not the case.

Law enforcement reports rise in marijuana vaping

People in Texas may be more likely to be taken into custody under laws around marijuana vaping than in the past as law enforcement around the country has begun cracking down on the practice. Nationwide, in the past two years, law enforcement has detained more than 120 people and seized over 500,000 marijuana vape cartridges. In part, the crackdown is driven by growing concern about a deadly lung disease that has been linked to THC vaping.

Federal marijuana legalization takes closer step

Those previously convicted of drug charges in Texas may be interested in a new bill that was passed by the House Judiciary Committee. The bill, known as the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act or MORE, would decriminalize marijuana on a federal level. After more than two hours of debate, the bill passed 24-10.
