Bill to Legalize Cannabis in Texas Filled

Roland Gutierrez of the Texas House of Representatives District 119 filed SB 140 on 11/09/2020 to legalize cannabis in the state of Texas. Some of the highlights of the bill include:

  • Sales would be legal to anyone 21+
  • A 10% tax rate would be imposed on cannabis products.
  • Would allow possession of up to 2.5 ounces, with up to 15 grams of that in concentrate form.
  • Up to 12 cannabis plants would be allowed for private grows.

While I believe this bill has a slim chance of passing, it demonstrates forward progress with the issue. Reach out to your rep and let them know how you feel about it. Free the plant!
