In spite of the tremendous challenges of 2020, marijuana law reform continues to be a uniting (and winning) issue!
Nationwide: Four states repealed marijuana prohibition, bringing the total number of legal states to fifteen, and Mississippi became the thirty-sixth’s state to legalize medical cannabis. For the first time, the US House of Representatives voted to repeal federal marijuana prohibition.
Texas: Led by district/county attorneys, every major metro area of Texas has now instituted some kind of diversion or cite/release program to mitigate the harm cause by prohibition. Legalization is on the table for serious conversation and Texas lawmakers have already introduced dozens of cannabis bills for the upcoming legislative session.
To set ourselves up for success in 2021, let’s finish 2020 strong!
