NEWS Texas House Committee Approves Bill To Make Marijuana Legal For Adults

TEXAS: The Texas House of Representatives Criminal Jurisprudence Committee approved a bill 5-1 Wednesday that would end marijuana prohibition in the state.

HB 2165, introduced in March by Rep. David Simpson (R-Longview), would strike references to marijuana offenses from Texas statutes, resulting in marijuana being treated similarly to other legal crops.

Nearly three out of five Texas voters (58%) support making marijuana legal for adults and regulating it like alcohol, according to a statewide survey conducted by Public Policy Polling in September 2013.
