Texas Pushes Towards Legalization

Last Thursday, the state of Texas finally saw some hope of legalizing marijuana.  The Austin City Council unanimously voted to back the legalization of medical marijuana.  While this does not mean that cannabis is legalized, it's a positive step towards the legalization of the plant.  State Representative Elliott Naishtat is said to be the future sponsor for the bill and it is said that he will create an affirmative defense for MMJ users.  

The future medical marijuana bill may also have support from others such as Governer Rick Perry who has previously stated that he would like to focus on treatment and decriminalization when pertaining to marijuana.  

Things are looking up for Texas!
