Now that the Texas Republican Party has announced their support of decriminalizing cannabis, people are wondering: Will Texas be the next state to end cannabis prohibition?
Delegates met at the Texas Republican Convention in San Antonio over the weekend near the end of June, and they added four marijuana-related items to the party's platform. Some of these new revelations include: decriminalizing small amounts of cannabis, updating the state's CBD oil prescription policy, and reclassifying the plant entirely.
This is big news for Texans who support health freedom and personal liberty.
Texas Republicans vote in favor of cannabis
At the convention, 83 percent of delegates supported ending jail sentences for people caught with an ounce or less of cannabis, while another 82 percent were in favor of improving the state's CBD oil prescription policy, dubbed the Compassionate Use Program. Under Compassionate Use, doctors can prescribe low-THC CBD oil to patients with severe seizure disorders. Eighty-three percent also said they want state lawmakers to pass laws permitting the cultivation, production, and selling of hemp products.
