Historic: HB 81 is Scheduled to Be Heard on the House Floor
Sensible marijuana policy reform is on its way to the House floor for a debate.
Fabulous news! Chairman Joe Moody’s House Bill 81, which would replace criminal penalties for marijuana possession with a simple ticket, has been scheduled to be debated on the House Floor on Thursday, May 11th. This is unprecedented as sensible sentencing reform has not been debated from the house floor since 1973, when we changed our laws to their current state (previously, you could face life in jail for small amounts of possession).
We will update you with more information as it comes out.
Join us to celebrate the history we are making at our 10th Annual Texas Marijuana March on Saturday, May 13th, 2017.
