Texas: Ask your senator to support reduced penalties for marijuana possession!

Open-uri20190425-6161-m2hmt2

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

The Texas House passed HB 63 with overwhelming bipartisan support. Rep. Moody's bill to reduce penalties for low-level marijuana possession. Let your senator know you support this bill and that it shouldn't be stalled through procedural tricks or unnecessary delays.

In 2017, our state arrested more than 64,000 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 support this important legislation by asking your senator for their support of reduced penalties for low-level marijuana possession, which 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! Please support more sensible marijuana policy!
