Drug Cultivation Attorney San Antonio TX
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 drug offense.
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.
