Marijuana is legal in some states, but not in Texas. If you obtain recreational marijuana in another state and bring it back to Odessa, Texas, you could be charged with possession of a controlled substance. This is a second-degree felony, and you could be punished severely in court. Your charges may also violate the Texas Controlled Substances Act. At The Law Office of Don R. Fletcher, Inc., I represent clients in these situations. I'll work with you to find out whether the police followed the right protocol for your arrest and seek to get your charges dismissed.
