Conroe Wax and Oil Charges Attorney

Conroe, Texas THC possession defense attorney for oils, waxes, and edibles

Drug Wax and Oil Charges Lawyer in Montgomery County

In recent years, marijuana has gained acceptance as a non-harmful drug that many people use recreationally, and it has also been found to have a variety of medical benefits. While several states have updated their laws to make marijuana legal, Texas has not followed suit. Since marijuana is still considered to be an illegal controlled substance in the state, those who possess the drug in any form or distribute it to others could face drug charges. It is also important to note that substances containing marijuana or THC, such as waxes and oils, may also result in prosecution for drug crimes.

We will explain the applicable laws, your legal rights, and the steps you can take to resolve your case successfully. We will advocate for solutions that will minimize your potential penalties, and if necessary, we can help you seek treatment that will allow you to resolve your case by receiving probation rather than a criminal conviction.

Drug Charges Related to THC

As the use of marijuana has become more common, multiple types of products have become available, including gummies and other edibles, oils that may be used in e-cigarettes, waxes, lotions, and much more. In some cases, people may purchase these products in other states and bring them to Texas without realizing that doing so is illegal. Unfortunately, the charges related to these products will often be more serious than those that would apply in cases involving marijuana plants.

The Texas Controlled Substances Act classifies THC, the psychoactive chemical in marijuana, in Penalty Group 2. This means that while it is treated less harshly than drugs such as heroin or cocaine, it may result in more serious penalties than would apply in cases involving cannabis plants. The charges that may apply for possession of products containing THC include:

  • Possession of less than one gram - State jail felony, with a sentence of 180 days to two years and a maximum fine of $10,000
  • Possession of one to four grams - Third degree felony, with a sentence of two to 10 years and a maximum fine of $10,000
  • Possession of four to 400 grams - Second degree felony, with a sentence of two to 20 years and a maximum fine of $10,000
  • Possession of over 400 grams - Punishable by a sentence of five to 99 years and a maximum fine of $50,000

In cases where a person is charged with manufacturing or delivering products containing THC, the following charges may apply:

  • Manufacturing or delivering less than one gram - State jail felony
  • Manufacturing or delivering one to four grams - Second degree felony
  • Manufacturing or delivering four to 400 grams - First degree felony, with a sentence of five to 99 years and a maximum fine of $10,000
  • Manufacturing or delivering more than 400 grams - Punishable by a sentence of 10 to 99 years and a maximum fine of $100,000

It is important to note that the law states that the amounts considered in a case are based on a product's aggregate weight, including any substances used to dilute THC. This means that even if a product has a small amount of THC, the weight of the product as a whole will be used to determine the level of offense that will apply. For example, possession of a packet of THC edibles with a net weight of 100 grams could lead to a person being charged with a second degree felony.
