of Marijuana Charges?

Before Time Runs Out.

San Antonio POM Defense Attorneys

Have You Been Charged with Possession of Marijuana?

Possession of marijuana (POM) is defined under Texas law as knowingly or intentionally possessing a usable quantity of marijuana at a specific time and place. The law further defines possession as controlling, managing, taking custody of, or caring for something. Depending on the amount of marijuana found in your possession, you will be facing either a misdemeanor or felony charge. A conviction will result in having a permanent criminal record that can be problematic for your future.

If you have been charged for possession of marijuana, our San Antonio POM defense lawyers can help. We have a history of successful results. With a former prosecutor on our legal team, we have an in-depth knowledge of how the State of Texas prosecutes criminal cases. We can use that knowledge and all of the legal skills and resources we have developed over the years to help you seek a favorable outcome.

Contact Smith & Vinson Law Firm to arrange a free initial consultation about your case. Call (210) 960-9557 today.

Possession of Marijuana Cases in Texas

POM charges are based on the weight of marijuana found in your possession.

Below are examples of how the quantity affects POM charges:

  • A possession of less than two ounces is charged as a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,000
  • A possession of two to four ounces is charged as a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000
  • A possession of more than four ounces is charged as a state jail felony punishable by a mandatory minimum sentence

Many POM cases are based on small quantities held by a person for recreational use. With the help of our criminal defense attorneys, these types of cases can often be settled with less harsh penalties, such as probation or drug treatment programs, or they may even be dismissed.

Possession of Drug Paraphernalia in Texas

Drug paraphernalia refers to items used to package, process, or use a drug. In marijuana cases, paraphernalia can include items such as pipes and bongs. Even innocuous household items like baggies, scales, spoons, or envelopes can be labeled as paraphernalia. Sometimes, an individual arrested for POM can also be charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, which is classified as a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $500.

  • Outstanding Lawyer

    “He is well versed in evidence and criminal law nuances, skills which allow him to level the playing field for his clients and make certain they get a fair chance at justice.”


  • He's a real lawyer!

    “A civil issue arose in Austin with a family member. We sought the advice of a well named Austin attorney. This unnamed attorney provided egregious legal advice. In court, a lifetime civil injunction was ruled by the judge on this non-criminal civil issue. Once learning of this judgement we immediately started looking for another attorney and found Brad Vinson, with Smith and Vinson. Simply put, Brad had this entire debacle reversed and a new judgement set for what is customarily ruled in similar cases. It didn't take long either. I only wish we had called Brad first. He's a real lawyer!”


  • Awesome communication

    “They handle my case incredibly well and warned me on the possible negative outcomes, overall completely satisfied me through the whole process. ”
