Texas: Tell your legislators that you support replacing criminal charges for marijuana possession with civil fines

Current marijuana laws in Texas are harsh, unreasonable, and ineffective. 

In 2016, our state arrested more than 66,000 for the simple possession of marijuana, a substance we know to be objectively safer that alcohol, tobacco, and many pharmaceutical drugs patients are prescribed every day. 

Reducing penalties for low-level marijuana possession will free up valuable criminal justice resources by eliminating the arrest, jail time, and collateral consequences currently associated with even small amounts of marijuana. 

It’s time for a change! 

Ask your legislators to sign on to HB 63, Rep. Joe Moody's bill that will replace current criminal sanctions with a civil penalty, punishable by fine only with no jail or criminal record.

 

 

Email your state legislators now in support of more sensible marijuana policies in Texas.
