Drug Cultivation Lawyer in San Antonio
Aggressively Fighting Drug Crime Charges
In our state, the cultivation of marijuana is a drug possession offense
if one knowingly or intentionally possesses a usable amount of
marijuana. Grow houses have become common in recent years, and if someone is the
owner of a grow house, a home or a building used specifically for cultivating
or growing marijuana, they can be charged with a felony
This is especially onerous for landlords who are renting out a house which
their renters then use for the growing and cultivating of marijuana plants.
In a criminal accusation related to cultivation, you need to be represented
by a top quality criminal attorney. I urge you to
contact my firm at once for assistance.
What Penalties Can I Expect?
Convictions for marijuana cultivation can result in a misdemeanor or felony
offense, but it all depends on how much marijuana or cannabis plants are
found in the grow house at the time of the arrest. The severity of the
penalties depend on the amount of the marijuana found, and two ounces
or less can be a misdemeanor punishable by a jail sentence of up to 180
days and/or a fine up to $2,000.
If the amount of marijuana found is over four ounces and under five pounds,
it is classified as a third degree felony and is punishable by a prison
sentence of 2 – 10 years, and/or a fine up to $10,000. The fines
and amount of jail time increase with the amount of marijuana found.
