Texas Marijuana Decriminalization Bill Set For Hearing Monday, March 13th
House Bill 81 has gotten a lot of talk on the show recently. It’s the bill that was presented by El Paso representative Joe Moody. Some states have decriminalized marijuana where you can actually go to a store and buy it. You can even grow your own plants. This bill wouldn’t quite do that, but it is a step in the right direction.
House Bill 81 would make it so if you are caught with less than an ounce of marijuana, you would only get a fine. It wouldn’t be a criminal offense anymore. It would be a civic offense that comes with a $250 fine. So you wouldn’t have to worry about jail time, or any of what happens now if you get caught with less than an ounce of marijuana.
