Possession of THC Concentrate | Hash, Oils and Waxes

Marijuana and marijuana concentrate contain the same active component — tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. However, in Texas, possession of cannabis oils or cannabis waxes is punished much more severely than possession of marijuana.

While some states have decriminalized marijuana and marijuana extracts, anyone charged with possession of THC in Texas will need a strong criminal defense.

Dabs And Oils

Generally, in Texas, possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor if the amount is less than 4 ounces, but possession of even a small amount of marijuana concentrate is a felony.

Often these charges result when people are arrested after bringing marijuana concentrates to Texas from other states. These concentrates can be obtained in various forms, such as dabs and hash oil. Whether the THC product is known as dabs, shatter, wax, honey oil, budder or butane hash oil (BHO), Texas drug laws place these concentrates in the same category as more serious drugs like PCP and Ecstasy.

Being convicted of possessing less than 1 gram of marijuana concentrate can result in a felony record, up to two years in jail, a fine of up to $10,000, and driver's license suspension. The penalties increase significantly for possession of larger amounts of THC.

If you have been arrested for possession of marijuana waxes or marijuana oils, do not hesitate to start protecting your rights. The stakes are too high to let the prosecution go unchallenged.
