In Texas, a parole revocation warrant is called a “blue warrant.” Typically, blue warrants are issued and executed without any notice to the parolee. Once the warrant is issued, the parolee is arrested and incarcerated.
Although cannabis is generally illegal in Texas, “hemp” is legal. The law defines hemp as cannabis with a Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of less than .3% by dry weight. The cannabinol derived from low-THC hemp is known as CBD and is also legal.
In May 2021, the attorneys at the Danford Law Firm won Ex Parte RPGP at the Texas Supreme Court. In light of the Court’s decision, many more Texans now qualify to have old misdemeanor arrests expunged.
