Drug Crime Attorney in Houston

Marijuana is no longer as taboo as it once was. In fact, this little green herb has become increasingly more accepted as part of today’s society especially since, to this day, there has yet to be a death that is specifically related to cannabis and there is still no proof regarding any ill effects it might have on the health of those who use it. However, state and federal laws have a long way to go before they catch up with public opinion. The state of Texas has particularly severe laws when it comes to this illicit substance and still prosecutes and jails individuals at an unfortunately high rate. At Mark Morasch, Attorney at Law, our Houston drug attorney will fight to protect your rights and work toward securing the best possible outcome for your case.
