This guide is an introduction to Texas edible marijuana laws and penalties. There are significant educational and employment consequences for possessing edible marijuana, or “edibles.”
Difference Between Possessing Marijuana and “Edibles”
While possessing marijuana is typically a Class B misdemeanor, having any amount of hash oil, the primary ingredient in marijuana “edibles,” is a felony offense.
Think of it this way: If you possess a gram of marijuana, you may face six months in the county jail and a $2,000 fine. However, if you possess any hash oil, you can face up to two years in prison.
Central Texas counties such as Comal County are known for aggressively charging students and others with felony drug possession for possessing TCH concentrates, marijuana “edibles,” and hash oil.
