Bill proposes decriminalizing possession of small amounts of pot
Alyssa Foley, Editor In Chief January 30, 2015
On Dec. 15, State Rep. Joseph “Joe” Moody, D-El Paso filed House Bill 507 which, if passed, would decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana in Texas. The bill would make possession of an ounce or less a civil—not a criminal—offense with a penalty of no more than $100. Offenders would be brought to court by a citation rather than by arrest, and they would not receive a criminal record. The bill’s author, Rep. Moody noted that, “It’s not going to legalize anything. It changes the way we sanction for small amounts of Marijuana.”
