Marijuana Possession and Military Enlistment

All branches of the United States Armed Forces hold their members to very high standards regarding skills and moral conduct. The military considers possession of marijuana and other drugs to be a moral issue. If you have been charged with marijuana possession or the possession of other drugs, it can hinder your ability to enlist in the military.

Lassiter, our experienced marijuana possession defense attorneys can help you fight your marijuana and drug possession charges so that you may still be eligible for military enlistment. To learn more about how we can help you, contact Mark T. Lassiter today at (214) 845-7007.

Divulging Drug Crimes

Under Texas law, you can be charged with marijuana possession or the possession of other drugs if they are on your person, close to your person, or under your control, such as in your backpack. If you are convicted of drug possession, there is no way that you can hide this crime from your military recruiter.

However, the military may examine the type of drug and the amount that you possessed in order to determine if it will hinder your military service. For instance, a person with a one-time marijuana possession charge may be able to still join, but for those with multiple convictions or a conviction for possession of more dangerous drugs, enlistment may be out of reach.
