In December, we stood by Rep. Joe Moody as he announced the introduction of House Bill 507, Texas’ first bill to eliminate the arrest, jail time, and criminal record associated with marijuana possession of less than one ounce. Now the bill is up for consideration by the House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee!
Starting at 11:00 a.m., you can SIGN UP IN FAVOR OF THE BILL. The committee will meet in the afternoon upon adjournment of the House for the formal hearing. (Note: You do not need to stay at the Capitol after signing up in favor of the bill.) **Please dress professionally.**
JOIN US AT THE CAPITOL!
We will gather in Room E2.024 at 11:00 a.m. This is where you can find details about the hearing, sign up in favor of the bill, and meet others from around the state who support sensible marijuana policies. (From 3-7pm., we will be in Room E2.018. After 7pm we will be in Room E2.030) **Please dress professionally.**
(Bring quarters if you’d prefer to use street parking.)
