Jax Finkel, Texas NORML:
“Current laws relating to marijuana are harsh and unfair, especially with regard to patients who could benefit from medicinal access to cannabis”
[San Antonio Current]

Voters in Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada will decide on initiatives to regulate marijuana similarly to alcohol for adults; Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota will vote on medical marijuana initiatives, and Montana residents will consider a measure to expand access to medical marijuana for qualified patients.

After helping to pass a limited medical marijuana oil bill in 2015, Lone Star advocates have been working throughout 2016 to inject marijuana policy reform into legislative races. Supporters have pledged to continue their work by increasing access to medical marijuana and decreasing penalties for simple possession in the 2017 legislative session.

“In Texas, we depend on our legislators to enact sensible marijuana policies,” says Jax Finkel, executive director of Texas NORML. “Current laws relating to marijuana are harsh and unfair, especially with regard to patients who could benefit from medicinal access to cannabis.”

“With voters in nine states considering significant marijuana law reform, we’re excited about the momentum that provides here in Texas,” said Heather Fazio, a representative of Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy. “The citizens of Texas want to see our laws changed and we’re seeing support from both major political parties. For example, the Republican Party of Texas has officially extended their support to medical marijuana through their party platform.”
