Texas Senator Intends To File A Bill Legalizing Marijuana In Texas

Texas Senator-elect Roland Gutierrez, who defeated Republican incumbent Pete Flores by more than 10,000 votes, announced on Monday his intent to file a bill to legalize marijuana and medical marijuana in the state of Texas.

In a statement Gutierrez says cannabis could provide the state with an economic opportunity worth $3.2 billion.

Gutierrez stated: “This bill will generate new revenue and create at least 30,000 high paying jobs. Our state’s economic future is uncertain and in order to best serve our state, we have to look at cannabis legalization as a solution and not keep going back to the taxpayers and raise their taxes.”
