2 ways police may try to arrest you for marijuana possession

The question of what happens to people caught with marijuana has become a tricky subject in recent years.

In general, most states have begun to treat marijuana like alcohol when you drive, so you should always avoid driving while high

3 things to never tell a police officer following a DUI arrest

One of the most well-known tropes of cop television shows is a person's right to remain silent. This Miranda Warning protects people from making incriminating statements. Anyone placed under arrest has a right to consult with a lawyer first before talking directly to law enforcement. 

How serious is it to cross into Texas with marijuana?

Now that several states in the country have changed their laws to allow the legal sale of marijuana and associated substances such as THC and hash oil, many new legal questions are arising, especially for states like Texas where those new laws do not apply. Of the states surrounding Texas, several have laws permitting either medical or recreational use of marijuana, or both.

The House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee sent House Bill 81 to the House for a vote. HB 81 reduces the charges for having an ounce of marijuana or less, or marijuana as it is written in the bill. It would eliminate jail time and threat of arrest. Instead, the offense would merit a fine of $250.
