A big win in Bexar County Court at Law 14 with The Honorable Paul Canales presiding. Working with co-counsel Robert Gebbia, Daniel Mehler was able to secure the first medical marijuana jury charge ever given in the State of Texas. What this means is that a judge actually instructed a criminal jury on medical marijuana as a part of Texas law for them to consider. Mr. Mehler argued that the jury was entitled to an instruction under 487 of the Texas Health and Safety Code and the Court agreed. The jury did the right thing with the instruction and acquitted our client of the charges.
This case is milestone in the progression of our movement toward legalization in Texas and our firm is passionately committed to breaking new ground in this area.
