I had a question. How much weed do you have to have in your car to be charged with possession? Can just a few flaky small leaves get you in trouble? And also, if you get caught with a pipe with marijuana residue, do you get arrested over it? I read that it was a civil offense, but I wasn't sure all the details surrounding that.

Hello emx620-ga, Texas has very tough marijuana laws. Possession 2oz or less (any amount less) is a misdemeanour, fine of $2,000 and incarceration of 180 days is possible. As a footnote to the above: "With no prior felony convictions, if convicted of possession of less than one pound of marijuana a judge must impose a sentence of probation with mandatory drug treatment. If no treatment center exists within the jurisdiction, the judge may waive the treatment requirement. They judge can also waive all fines." SOURCE: http://www.norml.org/index.cfm?wtm_view=&Group_ID=4566 Regarding the pipe, yes it is possible to get arrested: "Possession of paraphernalia is punishable by a fine of $500 and sale of paraphernalia is punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $3,000." SOURCE: http://www.norml.org/index.cfm?wtm_view=&Group_ID=4566 A detailed report of Texas law is available here: http://www.norml.org/pdf_files/state_penalties/NORML_TX_State_Penalties.pdf I hope this clears things up for you. Please let me know if you require any further information and I will do my best to further assist you. All the best, tisme-ga Search Strategy: marijuana law OR laws Texas
