Texas maintains stiff laws regarding marijuana, and you can be charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) if law enforcement officers determine you are impaired. Whether they use your own admissions, chemical test results, or the observations of a police officer, a prosecutor may seek to impose jail time, fines, and other legal penalties upon you.
An effective attorney is the greatest line of defense between you and these undesirable outcomes. Hire a Hurst DWI marijuana lawyer from the Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg, a firm that fights daily to protect the rights and futures of clients charged with DWI in Texas.
How a DWI Marijuana Charge in Hurst Could Affect Your Life
There is a great divide between how many Texans view marijuana and the legal penalties you face when a law officer determines you’ve driven after ingesting or smoking marijuana. Texas law leaves no doubt: A DWI marijuana charge is a big deal.
The legal penalties you face for driving under the influence of marijuana are the same as if you were charged with an alcohol-related DWI. The Texas Department of Transportation (TDOT) explains that a first-offense DWI charge can result in:
- A $2,000 fine
- Up to 180 days in jail (and a minimum of 3 days)
- 1-year suspension of your driver’s license
If your record includes a prior conviction for DWI, a second DWI conviction can trigger:
- A $4,000 fine
- Between 1 month and 1 year in jail
- 2-year suspension of your driver’s license
The penalties become even stiffer for a third DWI conviction, as potential legal sanctions include:
- A $10,000 fine
- Between 2 and 10 years imprisonment
- 2-year suspension of your driver’s license
While these legal penalties are attention-grabbing, the secondary effects of a marijuana-related DWI conviction in Hurst may be even more damaging. Should you be convicted of a DWI and suffer the legal penalties that come with a conviction, you may also:
- Lose your job (and possibly your career)
- Lose custody of your children
- Be evicted, either because you cannot earn enough to pay your rent or mortgage or because of the conviction itself
- Suffer several other personal, financial, and professional problems because of your DWI conviction
While many do not realize the cost of ingesting marijuana while driving or being falsely accused of doing so, the consequences are steep. Fortunately, a DWI lawyer from the Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg can help you.

How Our Lawyers Will Work to Help You Avoid a DWI Conviction in Hurst
Our team will review the details of your arrest and, along with you, determine the outcome we will pursue. For some clients arrested for DWI, we seek to dismiss the charges. We may do this when:
- Law enforcement officers engaged in inappropriate or unsound behaviors
- A client has not committed the offense they’re charged with
- There is not enough evidence to prove your guilt
