Current marijuana laws in Texas are harsh, unreasonable, and ineffective.
In 2018, our state arrested more than 62,000 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 support more sensible marijuana policy in Texas!
