Texas marijuana laws remain strict

Marijuana laws are constantly changing. Pot is legal in 10 states and in the District of Columbia, and legalization is on the docket in even more jurisdictions. According to a recent poll, 60 percent of Americans support marijuana’s legalization, and 63 percent of respondents think that people convicted of marijuana possession should have it expunged from their records.

While states around the country are decriminalizing and legalizing recreational marijuana, Texas laws regarding cannabis are still harsh. Sentencing guidelines include jailtime, steep fines and mandatory minimums.
