If you have been arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 2 for Tetrahydrocannabinol in Montgomery County then you are likely facing a State Jail or Third Degree felony. Tetrahydrocannabinol is smoked in vape pens and used similar to how marijuana was used in a joint for the last 30 years. With the changing times however the law still punishes non plant form Tetrahydrocannabinol as severely as they do substances like ecstasy and similar but not quite as harshly as cocaine or methamphetamine. If you have 0-4 grams of methamphetamine the punishment is exactly the same as 0-4 grams of Tetrahydrocannabinol.

Teenagers and adults under 27 are the most frequently arrested individuals for this crime. Many young people do not realize the consequences of being arrested or convicted of this type of crime. If you find yourself charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 2 on Montgomery County, Texas then you were most likely arrested in The Woodlands, Conroe, Willis, New Caney, Porter, Montgomery or another city nearby.

When you get out of the jail then you will have to report to the probation department for conditions of bond.

If you live out of county you may be required to report not only on your scheduled court date but on other days as well. Although bond conditions are not supposed to be oppressive they can be the most difficult part of facing an allegation of possession of a controlled substance penalty group 2.
