Texas House committee approves full legalization of marijuana

Texas House committee approves full legalization of marijuana - Houston Chronicle AUSTIN -- In a surprise move that supporters hailed as a historic victory, the Texas House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee approved legislation Wednesday to make it legal to buy and sell marijuana in the state. Two Republicans joined with the panel's three Democrats in support, giving House Bill 2165 a decisive 5-2 victory. The proposal, which would make Texas the fifth state in America to OK pot for recreational purposes, has virtually no chance of clearing any other hurdles on the path to becoming law in this year's legislative session. Still, advocates described the committee vote as a big step toward future success. "Marijuana policy reform continues to make unprecedented progress this session," Phillip Martin of the liberal group Progress Texas tweeted just after the vote.

Dispensaries delivering a dozen strains of kynd bud paid with a CC and Dylan on demand. Life is good. Say what... Texas? No shit?

oh well, so far so good...

One marijuana reform bill passes out of committee

It will likely stay there, and has virtually no chance of becoming law in a deeply conservative Legislature.

Nevertheless, the committee’s decision speaks volumes on how far Texas has shifted on the controversial matter.

Is this an Austin thing or a Texas thing?

Thumbs up Guess ol Willie will have to move back there

The state with the record number of executions. New Mexico is now surrounded on 2 sides with legalization. Putting Durango, Co on my bucket list with the 1st Dangerous Marijuana Resort. Used to live near there anyway. Sure wish the Gov was here to see all this. I'm sure he is watching. He was a great man. I'm glad he was a big part of my life in Denver.
