Cultivation of marijuana for personal consumption, for medicinal uses or for distribution to other people is illegal in Texas. Whether a person grows marijuana on a farm, in a public forest or in a home basement using hydroponics, an arrest for cultivation of marijuana will land in federal court.
Drug Crimes Defense · Houston Marijuana Cultivation Lawyer Jed Silverman Advocates on Behalf of the Accused
A person charged with cultivating marijuana may be charged with an offense for each individual plant. A marijuana cultivator with a large-sized grow house in the basement, in the garage or in a spare room in the house may be defended by an experienced attorney through a close look at law enforcement's method of search and seizure:
- Did the police or sheriff have a valid search warrant when coming onto your property to search, resulting in discovery and seizure of your marijuana plants?
- Even if there was a search warrant, was there sufficient probable cause for that warrant?
- Can the police prove without a reasonable doubt that you, in fact, were the person who was growing marijuana on your property, as opposed to someone else?
Defenses That Won't Work in Texas · Growing Marijuana? Lawyer Advocacy Is Essential.
Asserting that you were growing the marijuana for medicinal purposes is not a valid argument in Texas. In fact, you should not make any statements to police or investigators if you are under investigation for marijuana cultivation. To protect your freedoms and your future, entrust your case to an experienced marijuana possession lawyer.
