The 87th Texas Legislature is in session!
Current laws are harsh and unreasonable. Even with the legalization of hemp and diversion programs in every major city, more than 45,000 Texans were arrested for marijuana possession last year. A conviction triggers a permanent criminal record and a lifetime of collateral consequences.
In addition to needlessly derailing tens of thousands of lives per year, maintaining prohibition wastes our state’s valuable public safety resources. It’s time for a change!
