Ask your representative to co-author HB 63 to reduced penalties for marijuana possession!

Copy_of_penalty_reduction_post_card_-_front

Current marijuana laws in Texas are harsh, unreasonable, and ineffective.

In 2017, 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.

Please ask your representative to co-author Rep. Moody's House Bill 63. 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 replacing current criminal sanctions with a civil penalty, punishable by fine only with no jail or criminal record.
