Texas and the decriminalization of marijuana

Texas may follow the route of the several states that legalized marijuana in the 2016 elections. In addition, the newly-elected Harris County district attorney announced plans to decriminalize marijuana after taking office. She explained that she did not want to incarcerate non-violent offenders, especially those who committed marijuana-related offenses. Texas state lawmakers have announced six bills related to regulating marijuana. Most of the bills focus on reducing punishments for individuals found with small quantities of marijuana in their possession.
