Arrested at the Sierra Blanca Checkpoint for Drug Possession?
Marijuana Possession Lawyers
The Sierra Blanca checkpoint between Texas and Mexico is becoming a hotspot for marijuana-related arrests – as well as other drugs. Travelers are searched and then detained at the Sierra Blanca checkpoint, then put in jail.
This is particularly a problem with residents from Colorado or California who mistakenly think that if they have a medical marijuana card from their home state that they can legally purchase or possess marijuana for their own use. That is not the case. Texas doesn’t recognize prescription marijuana or the ways other states have worked to regulate medical marijuana usage.
You will be arrested and charged with a criminal possession, even if it’s a small amount for personal use.
