Texas is poised for historic action in 2019 to ease some marijuana prohibitions and join a national cannabis legalization movement that, to varying degrees, has already swept up all four of its border states.
Or maybe not.
One of Congress’ most powerful and vocal marijuana prohibitionists, Republican Pete Sessions of Texas, failed in his re-election bid for Congress’ 32nd District. Sessions was defeated by Democratic challenger Colin Allred.
As voters countrywide head to the polls on Tuesday for the heated midterm elections, a handful of states will also be deciding whether to pass marijuana legislation that would legalize the drug for medicinal or recreational use.
It’s that time again, where a few Texans (about 23 percent turn out for mid-term voting) go to the polls and decide the direction of the state, among other things, for the next few years. A common question is, will there be anything marijuana related to vote on?
Texas voters will head to the polls this November, and some will be armed with information about the candidates’ stances on various marijuana policies.
Through the collective efforts of numerous people around the state, Texas NORML has produced the Texas Marijuana Policy Voter Guide. The non-profit organization, which is dedicated to changing cannabis laws, routinely publishes this guide during the primaries and general elections. The first such guide was created in 2012.
Pandale Rio Farms would like to urge Texans to get out and vote!! This vote is critical to Texas cannabis. So get out there and VOTE!! Please check out The Texas Marijuana Policy voter guide for all the details and information.
