Fight Against Marijuana Possession Charges
Despite the more recent shift in public opposition to the substance, Texas laws regarding marijuana possession are still rigorous and are likely to be heavily enforced by prosecutors. Bearing that in mind, the first thing you need to do after being arrested on these charges is to get in touch with an experienced drug defense attorney in Austin. With an experienced attorney on your side, you are more likely to have your charges lowered or dropped altogether.
