It really depends on a lot of things. Being...

Your past record,

the cops that are arresting you,

how much mj is on you (more than an o?),

what county in Texas you're in (hopefully Travis),

the lawyer you hire,

were you inside a vehicle?

If it's a first offense, most likely you will get community service and have to take a drug enforcement education program of sorts in your county (slap on the wrist). Your biggest fee will probably be your lawyer and to get it expunged off your record in a year. Depending on the county most likely no drug testing/probation. Don't worry too much and think positive thoughts.
