Weed is currently illegal to possess Texas. It also has not been decriminalized like other states have started doing. If you are caught carrying or selling marijuana in Texas you could get jail time and a heavy fine. Anything under four ounces is a misdemeanor and anything above 4 ounces is a felony. Edibles are also still illegal and punishment is determined by the weight of the brownie not the amount of THC inside. On the other hand, hempis legal in Texas. In June of 2019 Texas signed into law that allowed for production, manufacturing and sale of hemp products. In March of2020 the application process opened for people who want to grow hemp. CBD is also legal in Texas if it is under 0.3% THC level.

On the other hand recreational cannabis is still illegal and Texas is one of the worst states to get caught for weed. Professional basketball player for the LA Lakers Alex Caruso was arrested for possession of marijuana back in June 2021. There are talks in the Texas state legislature to try and legalize smoking weed.
