Repealing Prohibition: Will Texas legalize marijuana?

On election night, four more states (South Dakota, Montana, New Jersey, and Arizona) legalized marijuana for adult use, bringing the number of legal states to 15. A recent report indicates that Texas could bring in $1.1 billion in tax revenue per budget cycle, plus additional positive economic impacts. While a majority of Texans do support reform, there are reasonable concerns about this shift in policy. Our panelists will discuss the risk and benefits of repealing prohibition, sort the facts from the fear, and lay out the prospects for this kind of reform during the upcoming legislative session.Presenters(s):
