The vast majority of marijuana-based arrests in the State of Texas are Misdemeanor-B "Possession of Marijuana Under Two Ounces", punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine. Very rarely do district attorneys seek a jail sentence in misdemeanor possession of marijuana cases, and frequently my clients will face only a deferred adjudication probation or diversion program and the related fines and community service, with no arrest on their record after completion of their plea agreement and a filing for non-disclosure.
