Possession of Marijuana
Believe it or not, a great majority of all drug offenses filed are typically misdemeanor possession of marijuana cases. This is not to imply that they should be taken lightly, but rather, quite the opposite.
In Texas, and in Harris County, drug cases are taken very seriously by law enforcement. They need to justify the money that the local, State, and Federal Government are spending on the “war on drugs.”
This means that you can expect them to be more and more zealous in the enforcement and prosecution of misdemeanor drug offenses. When hiring a lawyer to help you defend against any drug case, misdemeanor or felony, you need to make sure they are a drug defense lawyer.
Houston drug defense lawyers are a different breed of lawyer from other criminal defense lawyers. They have to be more analytical in their pursuit of justice. Drug cases are different in that there is no question as to whether or not there were drugs found. The prime question focuses on how were the drugs discovered? Was there a search? If so, how did the search legally take place? These questions, and many more are some of the basic questions that a Houston Drug Defense lawyer would be prepared to litigate in a suppression hearing or a subsequent trial on the merits of your case.
