    I am not a Texas resident, but I am 100% happy for the state and hope this gets passed. I feel that if Texas legalizes, congress will finally release it’s hold and regulate it like alcohol or tobacco, both of which are way more harmful that smoking marijuana or ingesting it in any form. Its 2015, all the reefer madness stuff, people know the truth now. There’s no hiding it. Go Texas!!
