6 Worst States To Get Caught With Weed
With so much talk about the growing legalization movement, it can be easy to forget how punitive the U.S.’s anti-weed laws are. As evidence, here are the six worst states to get caught with weed.
Texas is one of the worst states to get caught with weed because it still enforces a number of mandatory minimum sentences for breaking weed laws.
If you get caught with two ounces or less, you could face up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine. But if you are busted with between four ounces and five pounds of cannabis, you’re looking at a felony charge and a mandatory minimum of 180 days behind bars.
And if you’ve got more than five pounds, it’s a mandatory minimum five years, but it can go as high as 99 years in prison.
