Tell your legislators to support reduced penalties for marijuana possession!
Current marijuana laws in Texas are harsh, unreasonable, and ineffective.
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.
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.
