If you’ve been arrested for committing a crime involving marijuana, you might not be guilty. Oftentimes, in Houston, police officers will detain someone due to the alleged “smell” of marijuana; however, having the officer smell marijuana is not a criminal offense. Maybe the officer smells his or her own weed? Maybe they smell the weed of a passerby, or maybe, just maybe, the smell of weed is coming from your own vehicle. If this is the case, and the police find marijuana or related contraband in your automobile, this could be grounds for an arrest.
If you’re arrested for possession of marijuana, you have a number of options.
