Is Delta-8 Legal in Texas?

 Posted on August 19, 2022 in Criminal Defense

Midland Texas Criminal Defense AttorneyThe current classification of cannabis and cannabis-derived products is a topic of confusion for most Texans. Though, it is a topic Texas inhabitants should be clear on as possession of marijuana and paraphernalia can warrant varying charges from misdemeanor to felony. As of the moment, cannabis-derived products that contain less than 0.3% of THC are legal in the state of Texas. As long as Delta-8 products do not exceed 0.3% of THC are not considered controlled substances. This contingency is fragile due to an ongoing lawsuit to determine the legal status of Delta-8. 

Possibility Penalties 

This fragile contingency is a good reason to get clear on the laws surrounding marijuana. As multiple states across America have legalized recreational use of marijuana, Texas has passed more lenient criminal penalties for possession. Not to be mistaken, possession of marijuana is still illegal, in fact, possession of two or less ounces of cannabis is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in prison and a maximum fine of two thousand dollars. Possession of four or more ounces of cannabis is a felony punishable by a minimum of two years imprisonment with a maximum fine of ten thousand dollars. Not only is marijuana illegal in the state of Texas, but possession of paraphernalia is also a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of five hundred dollars. The sale of paraphernalia in Texas is a misdemeanor punishable by one year in prison and a maximum fine of four thousand dollars.
