The manner in which the law enforcement officer obtained the alleged drugs from the accused is an important part of the case. Our marijuana possession defense lawyers have represented many clients charged with drug possession. Our marijuana possession defense attorneys may be able to suppress the way in which the officer obtained the drugs from you, resulting in a dismissal of your case.
In addition, a conviction for a possession of marijuana offense has consequences outside of what the punishment the State of Texas assesses against you. If you are found guilty of a drug offense you will be declared ineligible to receive financial aid from the federal government for student loans.
