In particular, the proposed rules released last month by state regulators could: Shrink the revenues of companies that make infused products and concentrates. Sharply reduce the amount of product that cannabis delivery operators can transport. That, in turn, could slow deliveries to the customers of MJ retailers that a....

 Texas Lawmaker Files Legislation to Decriminalize Marijuana Possession


Anthony Martinelli

Legislation to decriminalize marijuana possession has been filed in the Texas Legislature.
State Representative Joe Moody has prefiled legislation that would decriminalize the possession of up to an ounce of marijuana. The measure would make it so that anyone caught with up to an ounce could be fined a maximum of $250, but would not receive any jail time or criminal record. This is in stark contrast to current law, where possessing up to an ounce is punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 and up to six months in jail as well as a misdemeanor charge on your record. Civil penalty legislation is the first thing Ive filed on the first day of filing for the 86th Session....
