Previously, I wrote to Rep. Stick regarding HB 715 which is a proposed law that would reduce the criminal penalties for low-quantity marijuana possession. Though I support full legalization, I do believe this is a good step, albeit a small one.
Mr. Stick has responded to my letter and I reproduce his reply in whole:
Dear Mr. Hueter:
Thank you for your recent letter regarding House Bill 715. I am glad you took the time to share your thoughts on marijuana possession with me and I value your input. I am currently sponsoring legislation that would reduce criminal penalties for possession of any drug that weighs less than one gram from a felony to a misdemeanor.
I will continue to work on behalf of my constituents for the benefit of the State of Texas. I appreciate hearing from you and I am glad you took the time to share your thoughts with me.
