Comments

In the 85th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature, I authored HJR 46, which would have proposed a constitutional amendment to authorize and regulate the possession, cultivation, and sale of cannabis. The bill failed to receive a hearing, but I plan to refile in the next session. I also co-authored HB 81, which would have reduced the penalty for possession of less than announce of marijuana. link
