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.
