Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy's Ad Applies to All States

They say everything's bigger in Texas. That's great when you're talking about barbecue, cattle, or football. Unfortunately, this saying also applies to charges for the possession of marijuana. According to NORML, Possession of under 2 ounces of marijuana can still lead to incarceration for 180 days. 

 

The new video ad from Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy features Nick Novello, a Dallas police officer and Heather Jackson, a Houston cancer survivor who was jailed for marijuana possession. While it's pushing change for Texas, its message still resonates across the country. 

 

The two advocates make the case for reducing penalties for marijuana possession in Texas. The moving new TV advertisement urges viewers to contact their legislators and ask them to support Texas' HB 81, "which would replace the threat of arrest, jail time, and a criminal record for possession of up to one ounce of marijuana."

 

Perhaps the most important takeaway of the whole ad, for people all over the United States and beyond, was Officer Novello saying that "criminalizing people for marijuana possession does more harm to the community than marijuana itself."

 

 

Check out the ad above, and be sure to share this to show your support of HB 81!
