Week 2: Join Texas NORML and find out who represents you!
This week, we’ll take the next step toward involvement in our Texas government: learning about your legislators. These legislators author legislation that impacts our everyday lives. We specifically rely on our State Representative and State Senators to change our state marijuana laws and our US Senator and US Congressperson to change our federal marijuana laws.
WEEK 2 ACTION: WHO REPRESENTS ME?

How does YOUR legislator stand on the issue? Now that you know their names, let’s find out where they stand on cannabis law reform. Review their 86th Legislature Voting Record. Go to the Texas NORML Voter Guide to see how they responded to our questions. Stay tuned for our Texas Marijuana Policy Primary Voter Guide in Spring 2022!
From there, you can find out your officials’ responses to our questions about cannabis law reform. Some officials declined to answer (more on that below).
THE BOTTOM LINE
If your state representative already supports reform, they could use a pat on the back for their work. If they’re against you on this issue or have not responded, it’s because legislators feel secure in their jobs, despite working against the will of Texans. Imagine if you banded together with thousands of other like-minded voters, and worked for policies in line with your beliefs?
WHAT’S NEXT?Your representative may have neglected to reply to our survey about cannabis positions or perhaps does not yet support marijuana law reform. You may have to go a step further and find out where they stand. Next week, we’ll call the offices of our elected officials and learn about their positions. See you in Week 3!
