What's happening with marijuana law reform in Texas? 3 signs change might be coming

Three major marijuana bills made it to the Texas legislature last session, but only one passed. This bill legalized extremely limited low-THC medical marijuana access to patients with epilepsy -- specifically allowing them to use cannabidiol (CBD) oil for their condition. The other two bills that did not pass would have decriminalized marijuana possession, and legalized recreational use of marijuana for adults.

Texas Medical Marijuana Law Sets the Stage for More Reform

In 2015 lawmakers in 21 states, including Texas, considered passing bills to legalize marijuana. In fact, two bills that would have decriminalized marijuana possession in Texas were approved by a committee in the legislature, but neither of the measures became law.

With No Reform, Penalties for Marijuana Possession Still Heavy in Texas

Each year in Texas, more than 70,000 people are arrested for marijuana, and the vast majority of those arrests - 97 percent - are for possession of 2 ounces or less. In fact, marijuana arrests make up more than half of all drug arrests in Texas.
