ACTION ALERT: Call your representative in support of HB 63!

​It’s true. For the first time since the 70’s, penalty reduction for marijuana possession will be voted on by the Texas House of Representatives!

Rep. Joe Moody’s House Bill 63​​ is one of our priorities policies and it has been scheduled for a vote TODAY. If passed, this bill would reduce penalties for low-level marijuana possession and free up valuable criminal justice resources by eliminating the arrest and jail time currently associated with even small amounts of marijuana​. Plus, people would be able to avoid the lasting collateral consequences that come along with a conviction. Instead, they’d simply pay a fine.

​Please take a moment to call your representative today! Ask them to support HB 63 when it’s up for a vote on the House floor.

1) Find their Capitol office phone number here: https://wrm.capitol.texas.gov/home​.

2) Then, make the call! Here’s what to say:

“Hello, my name is _______ and I am a constituent. I’m calling in support of Rep. Moody’s House Bill 63, which will save valuable public safety resources by putting a stop to jailing people for small amounts of marijuana. The bill will also help people avoid a criminal record, allowing them to stay in school or the workforce. Please ask my representative to support HB 63 when it’s up for a vote later today.”

ADDITIONAL ACTION: Email your representative in support of the bill.

Please share this action alert with your friends, family, and neighbors. We need to flood the Capitol with calls today and tomorrow!
