We just had a spirited debate at the ol' courthouse about this subject: If you had to sentence a person to the local county jail for the first time possession of what you kids call "a joint", how many days, if any, do your realistically think is fair? The current Texas law says "up to 180 days." Consider the defendant to have no criminal record and that there is no question that he possessed the small amount of marijuana. And, if you want to get specific, he has two days credit from the time he was arrested until the time he bonded out of jail. I'll probably put a poll up later if there's enough interest.
