Although the laws regarding marijuana are being relaxed in many areas around the country, the state of Texas still bans the use, sale, or possession of marijuana. It is also illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana anywhere in Texas. However, if you’ve been arrested for DWI marijuana in The Colony, your situation is not hopeless. It’s your constitutional right to fight the charges. A DWI Marijuana lawyer for The Colony can assist you.
The Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg is a criminal defense firm with experience representing defendants in DWI cases. We understand the profoundly negative impact a DWI marijuana conviction can have on your personal life and your career. We believe in the principle that you are innocent until proven guilty, and our team will challenge the state’s case to the best of our ability.
What Can a DWI Marijuana Lawyer Do for You?
When you go to trial for DWI Marijuana, the case is read as “the people of the state of Texas” vs. you. Right out of the gate, it feels like the odds are stacked against you. However, the state is still required to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. A DWI marijuana lawyer from our firm will be your advocate.
We’re not public defenders with limited time and resources to put into your defense. We are a law firm with a strong history of fighting DWI cases and getting results for our clients. We get those results because we do our own evidence-gathering and investigation into your case. We will use our experience to find the weak points in the state’s case and use that to your advantage.
We will map out a strategy to increase your chances of a positive outcome. If you have questions, we’ll answer them. Our team will file any necessary paperwork with the courts and answer all motions from the prosecutor’s office.
How do DWI Marijuana Lawyers Fight Cases?
Our DWI marijuana attorneys begin fighting your case by taking an in-depth look at all the evidence against you. It’s possible the arresting officer lacked probable cause to pull you over or failed to properly administer your blood test. We will look for any witnesses or other evidence that could challenge the state’s charges of driving while intoxicated.
If we’re able to discover evidence in your favor, it may motivate the prosecutor to negotiate with us for reduced charges or lower penalties in your case. Our number one goal is to get you to a place where you can move on with your life and make positive strides toward a better future. If we can work out a deal with the prosecutor that allows you to move forward with your reputation and criminal record intact, we’ll do it.
If that’s not possible, we are ready, willing, and able to fight your case at trial. The managing attorney from our firm, Randall B. Isenberg, served as chief felony prosecutor for Dallas County and a state district court judge for over thirty years. He understands how prosecutors build cases and knows how to persuade juries. This insight could make a positive difference in the outcome of your case.
What Are the Consequences of a DWI Marijuana Conviction?
Texas considers marijuana to be a drug, which means it is not permissible for anyone to operate a motor vehicle under the influence of even a small amount of marijuana. The consequences of a first conviction are as follows:
- Mandatory jail sentence of 72 hours up to a maximum of 180 days
- Suspension of your driving privileges for up to 1 year
- A fine of up to $2,000
The penalties for a second conviction are heavier, and include:
- A jail sentence between 1 month and 1 year
- Suspension of your driving privileges for up to 2 years
- A fine of up to $4,000
It’s also important to note that the fines listed here do not include a state fine that will be applied by the sentencing judge. The potential state fines are $3,000, $4,500, or $6,000, and the judge has complete discretion as to which amount they demand.

Additional Consequences of a DWI Marijuana Conviction
The suspension of your driver’s license, loss of freedom, and heavy fines are far from the only negative impacts of a DWI Marijuana conviction. At a minimum, your insurance rates will spike. If you drive for a living, you may no longer be able to continue in that line of employment. You may also lose any professional licenses (e.g., real estate license, bar association membership) or certifications you held prior to your conviction.
There is also still a prohibition on people with drug convictions receiving financial aid for college. The conviction could also create complications for you in child custody cases. That’s why the attorneys on our DWI marijuana team will fight so hard against a conviction.
