In my practice I get asked this question quite often. The answer is “No”–K2 is not legal in Collin County, or for that matter, any county in Texas.

K2 is a synthetic cannabis blend that has been around for about the past decade or so. Many folks think the K2 effect is from a mixture of legal herbs. However, K2 contains synthetic cannabinoids, which has a similar effect on the body as cannabinoids naturally found in cannabis, such as THC. The Texas Legislature made K2 illegal in Texas in 2011.

The same penalties for possession of marijuana apply to K2, which are the following:

2 ounces or less is a Class B misdemeanor = not more than 180 days in a county jail
and/or a fine of not more than $2,000.

More than 2 ounces, but less than 4 ounces is a Class A misdemeanor = not more
than 1 year in a county jail and/or a fine of not more than $4,000.

More than 4 ounces, but less than 5 pounds is a State jail felony = 180 days to 2
years in a state jail and/or a fine of not more than $10,000.

More than 5 pounds, but less than 50 pounds is a Third-degree felony = 2 to 10 year
in a state prison and/or a fine of not more than $10,000.

More than 50 pounds, but less than 2,000 is a Second-degree felony = 2 to 20 years
in a state prison and/or a fine of not more than $10,000.

More than 2,000 pounds is a Enhanced first-degree felony = 5 to 99 years and a fine
of not more than $50,000.

If you find yourself facing possession of K2 charges, you should contact a lawyer to help you navigate the legal process.
