    No city in Texas will ever dare to thumb its nose at the Texas Legislature the way some states have thumbed their noses at the Federal government.
    And to make things worse, even if Texas were to pass a law tomorrow completely legalizing marijuana, you will still have some cities that will pass ordinances against it in their city... So in other words, Austin could still refuse to let you possess pot even if it becomes legal in Texas, but the reverse as you suggested earlier just isn't possible.

    Idk.. Have you been to Austin? What makes you say this? Considering that's where the rules are made it wouldn't be a surprise.

    A hippy town filled with hipsters and a large gay pop. Austin prides itself in not following the norm. Certainly not conservative

    I live about an hour from Austin & I bought my LED light from BML which is located in Austin.
    I know that the citizens of Austin would love to be able to grow & smoke legally, but it's just not gna happen unless our legislature changes the law. And our politicians are not going to do that until WE put enough pressure on them.... So help me & others by emailing John Cornyn & Ted Cruz and telling them that you want them to legalize Marijuana here in Texas!!

    There has recently been a big movement to legalize it for medical here in Oklahoma. We were very close to being able to vote on it this month, but now will have to wait a while. Still, there is movement on the subject. Check out this "copy and paste" from the website cannabist.co:

    Oklahoma
    State question 788: This initiative sponsored by Oklahomans for Health would allow for use, sale and growing of marijuana for medicinal purposes. The measure does not have qualifying health conditions, but would require approval of a state-certified physician for a patient to apply for a license.

    Where it stands: Voters won’t see the measure in November because a fight over Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s rewording of the ballot measure and questions about signatures landed in front of the state’s highest court. Pruitt submitted the revision on Aug. 25, two days after the Secretary of State’s office announced the initiative had surpassed the threshold for petition signatures required to get on the ballot. According to The Associated Press, state officials say there’s not enough buffer time for legal challenges ahead of deadlines to get ballots verified and mailed to military members and overseas voters.

    “It’s important for the people of Oklahoma to know — regardless of the substance of the state question — the signatures were not submitted with enough time to allow this process to be played out completely,” Pruitt said.

    On. Sept. 6, a lawsuit was filed alleging that Pruitt’s rewrite of the medical cannabis ballot question misleads voters. Attorney David Slane, who filed the lawsuit, accuses Pruitt of being biased against the proposal and rewriting the question to confuse voters.

    At the end of September, supporters said a 10-day protest period for their case passed without challenge, meaning the measure will be put on a future ballot. That likely will happen in 2018, but supporters do plan to lobby for a special election.

    That's what they do... They find reasons (legal loopholes) to postpone having to put it on ballot for as long as they can!!
    Our legal system & gov't have become such a disappointment....

    I'm not sure of TX but for MA it's on the state ballot Nov 8th. More than 50% say yes to Q4. Dec 15 recreational MJ will take effect and businesses will begin to open up 1/2018. Looking forward to it. You should see the opposing commercials...completely rediculous.

    Conventional thinking is an initiative needs to poll around 56% to pass. Be darn interesting to see if the peeps in the 52% support states care nuff to turn out and pass.

    So theres no potent weed in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, India, Nepal, Africa, Colombia, Mexico....The list could keep going. This makes no sense and theres certainly no scientific basis for it

    Made to Austin a few weeks ago, definitely not your typical texas town. Reminded me of a displaced yankee town lost in the desert, felt like a filthy version of Amherst or something hahaa

    I have to agree with Hotrodharley, legalization isn't coming anytime soon. People are nice here , but looking forward to leaving

    actually a bunch of cities already have, El Paso, Houston, Dallas, Corpus, San Antonio, have actually decriminalized cannabis to a misdemenor offence, basically you get a ticket and you do community service

    the reason, welp, why clog up the court systems with minor offences

    now if your caught under the influence in a motor vehicle its treated like a DWI....

    Madison Wisconsin broke away and decriminalized a while back. No where else in Wisconsin did this take place...
