It's time for real change in the Lone Star State
Earlier this year, the Marijuana Policy Project announced the launch of a multi-year legislative campaign in Texas. We recently retained a political director as well as a contract lobbyist in Austin, both of whom will work with activists and lawmakers to ensure passage of sensible marijuana policies.
Working with a coalition, Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy, MPP will:
1) Establish a compassionate medical marijuana program;
2) Replace criminal penalties for marijuana possession with a civil fine; and
3) Legalize the market for marijuana for adults 21 and, similarly to alcohol.
