It is with immense frustration that I write you to tell you that HB 81 was not heard by the deadline of midnight on Thursday, May 11th. Due to deleterious actions of legislators in regards to other bills, the agenda did not advance to our bills position. This is a travesty. However, Chair Moody has promised to continue to work to get it added as amendments to bills as the session continues.
Take comfort that our efforts were outstanding, history was made and we are more unified than ever to come back in 2019. With our tactical wins this session, we will continue to build momentum.
In the next few days, we will have a break down for you on the achievements of each bill and future plans. Once the session fully ends, the cycle will start again and we must be ever ready! Expect more to come. We have been catalyzed into a stronger, smarter force.
Please take a moment to donate toward our upcoming strategy. Join Texas NORML and be part of history with us!
We also invite you to join us this Saturday, May 13th at the Texas State Capitol for our 10th Annual Texas Marijuana March, where we will redress our grievances against our government in regard to cannabis laws.
