In Texas, Rep. Marisa Marquez has sponsored House Bill 2785 which is 40 pages of in depth marijuana legislature examining what conditions benefit from marijuana, as well as how to keep it in the hands of responsible adults. Marquez is hoping to make Texas the 24th state with legal medical marijuana, allowing their seriously ill patients access to non-addictive and truly helpful alternative medicine. Surverys show 77% of Texans support medical marijuana reform.
Though he considers Texas to be a leader on many issues, Moody said the state has been “clearly absent from the discussion related to marijuana enforcement and how we regulate that market. It’s a national discussion that is ongoing and it’s happening without us. As Texans I don’t think we should allow that to happen.”
