legalize marijuana in texas sign now

The Problem

Today, hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars are wasted enforcing the failed prohibition of cannabis (also known as marijuana).

Currently, cannabis is easier for kids to get than alcohol.

Prohibition has created a violent criminal market run by international drug cartels. Police waste valuable resources targeting non-violent cannabis consumers, while thousands of violent crimes go unsolved. And there is billions in marijuana sales every year in Texas, but our debt-ridden state sees none of the revenue that would come from controlling and taxing it.

Cannabis prohibition has failed.

The Solution
We need a common sense approach to control and tax cannabis like alcohol.
Proposition 420 was carefully written, in order to:

Control cannabis like alcohol, allowing adults 21 and over in Texas to possess up to one ounce of cannabis, to be consumed at home or licensed establishments.

Give state and local governments the ability to tax the sale of cannabis for adult consumption.

Put our police priorities where they belong, by ending the arrests of non-violent cannabis consumers, saving hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars a year and enabling police to focus on violent crime.

Generate billions in annual revenue to fund what matters most in Texas: jobs, healthcare, public safety, parks, roads, transportation, and more.

Cut off funding to violent drug cartels across our border who currently generate 60 percent of their revenue from the illegal U.S. marijuana market.

Protect our kids, our roads, and our workplaces, by increasing the penalty for selling marijuana to minors, banning the smoking of marijuana in public, on school grounds, and while minors are present,

maintaining strict criminal penalties for driving under the influence of marijuana, and preserving employers rights to maintain drug-free workplaces Protect medical cannabis patients rights.
