Three Action Alerts – Please Participate!

Three Action Alerts

Please Participate! 

In the Senate, both the Civil Penalty Bill (SB 170) and Medical Cannabis Bill (SB 269) have been referred to committee! We have created an action alert for each that has editable letter for you to send to the committees.

Email the Chairman and Committee Members in support of the Civil Penalty Bill (SB 170)!

Email the Chairman and Committee Members in Support of the Medical Cannabis Bill (SB 269)!

We have also received the wonderful news that Representative Joe Moody has been appointed the Chair of the Criminal Jurisprudence Committee. Rep Moody is the author of the House version of the Civil Penalty Bill (HB 81). This ensures that the bill will receive a timely and positive hearing. The bill has not been referred to committee as appointments have just been made but it should be shortly. For now, we need you to let your personal legislators know that you support HB 81. This will help engage with all legislators so that they hear from their constituency before the bill gets to the house floor.

Please support the important work we are doing in Texas by supporting our lobbying efforts, making a donation or becoming a Texas NORML member.

    Elected officials can ignore phone calls and emails they cannot ignore 4,000 letters showing up at their office. Hemp Educate America launched the first micro-lobbying tool in the cannabis space that allows the community to voice their opinion and create action by sending a physical letter to the elected official of choice!

  2. While this may seem like progress, I personally support 100% decriminalization and legalization of marijuana. Minorities will continue to be discriminated against and arrested for possession and use of marijuana with the proposed Medical Cannabis and Civil Penalty Bills.
    I would encourage those of you who support 100% decriminalization and legalization of marijuana to let your state legislators know, and join the worldwide march to legalize and decriminalize marijuana tentatively set for Austin, TX the week of South by Southwest- March 10-March 19
