Bill seeks to reduce penalties for small marijuana possession

There is no doubt that marijuana use is a hot top in the Texas Legislature this year. Following a nationwide trend, there are nearly 60 proposed bills in the statehouse currently related to marijuana in one form or another. They include bills dealing with cannabis for medicinal use and testing for use to obtain public benefits.

No, you do not have to talk to police

Few things can be more intimidating than sitting across from a police investigator in an interrogation room. After all, law enforcement officers receive training on how to get criminal suspects to talk. If officers have arrested you on suspicion of drug possession, what you say or do not say matters. 

Legislators reconsider penalties for marijuana possession

Despite growing trends toward cannabis legalization across the country, many people in Texas are still facing severe recriminations after convictions for possession of small amounts of marijuana. In the past five years, around 379,000 Texans have been arrested and charged with possession of 2 ounces or less of cannabis. One woman was arrested in 2013 at the age of 21 after she was found with a small amount of marijuana, about enough for one joint. In 2019, she continues to deal with drug checks through a probation officer, restriction to her county and a prohibition on going to bars.
