Author: Monterey Bud 10/08/2017 - 17:31:00

Pushed by State Rep. Joe Moody (D- El Paso), a Texas marijuana decriminalization bill is currently on life support in the special session of the state Legislature.

Meant to pressure Texas Gov. Greg Abbott into addressing the legalization of medical marijuana in the state of Texas, and to decriminalize low-level possession for personal use, House Bill 334 has been largely ignored by the Texas governor. 

But according to My Statesman, Rep. Moody, who chairs the jurisprudence committee and sponsored the legislation, explained that “continuing to work on the bill now by soliciting input will better position it for success during the next regular session of the state Legislature in 2019.”
