Attorney Steve Toland continues his discussion about THC infused products and marijuana laws in Texas. Today he discusses one of the biggest misconceptions about THC infused products.
Colorado is one of the states where marijuana products are legal. If you were to purchase a gummy bear, a cookie, a vape pen with THC oil, a brownie, any edible products, and you bring those back to Texas, you are committing a felony.
Every single product, no matter how innocuous or small gummy bears included are felonies. They start at a state jail felony and go all the way up to a first-degree felony. Many people don’t realize that, but that’s one of the more significant misconceptions about the new marijuana laws and THC.
So how did, how did that come to be?
Well, it starts with the definition of marijuana. In Texas, marijuana is defined by the description of its appearance, its texture, its odor, it’s a green leafy substance. THC oil though, is the oil that’s extracted from the plant itself. The oil has THC, the psychoactive component that gets you high. And it has it at such highly concentrated levels that the legislature in Texas ascribes a penalty group to assessment to that.
