According to a new University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll, 83 percent of Texans support some form of marijuana legalization, signaling a shift in attitudes toward the drug. Yet state legislators largely still support marijuana prohibition.
“I think we need to keep asking ourselves whether we would rather put control of drugs into the hands of law-abiding citizens acting under careful regulation and oversight, or continue to leave it in the hands of criminals who have no incentive to restrict its use and distribute it in a responsible manner,” fellow Bill Martin said.
