Busted in Texas

What are the penalties for growing one plant?

I am a college student in Texas (SWT). My house was raided. The pigs' response for them coming in without a search warrant was that they were responding to a 911 call, which is absurd. It seems someone ratted me out for growing one plant. If the law somehow convicts me of the charges brought against me, "conspiracy to cultivate," am I looking at a felony or a misdemeanor?

Cultivation and conspiracy to cultivate are felonies. Not only would you become a felon, but you would lose eligibility for federal college loans. The warrantless search is bogus and a good criminal attorney knowledgeable in drug law in Texas may be able to get the case thrown out on motions.

Further, the 911 call can be investigated to find its source. Even if you have only a public defender you can fight this unjust case. To find out more about this, check out free information on my website regarding marijuana law. It contains detailed instructions on how to win a marijuana case. Go to www.ask-ed.net.
