Changing Cannabis Policy In Texas Meet Up

Speakers

Jax Finkel

Texas NORML

Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

Texas lags behind in reforming cannabis laws. Hemp regulations are rolling out, Texas' limited low-thc cannabis medical program has added new conditions and in the next year an estimated 60k Texans will be arrested for possession, despite a patchwork of diversion programs in urban areas. With 86% of Texans supporting substantive law change, how do we create pressure during the interim so that we can be successful during the 2021 legislative session? We want to create a space where we can look back at where we have bee, what is our current status and where we go from here while networking to create relationships for the future.
