Marijuana Convictions Affect Your Future More Than You May Think
National news outlets frequently run stories about new changes and public attitudes concerning the use of marijuana. In North Texas, law enforcement and prosecutors, however, continue to pursue possession of marijuana charges with vigor. A person convicted of a drug charge in Collin County can be facing fines, jail time or prison time directly related to the offense, depending on the individual facts involved and amount of cannabis or pot used as evidence.
