Marijuana Reform: Fears and Facts (Update)
Neill, Katharine A.; Martin, William
On March 13, 2017, William Martin, director of the Drug Policy Program, testified before the Texas House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence in favor of HB 81, which would reduce the penalty for possession of less than one ounce of marijuana from arrest and possible jail time to a civil fine. Martin’s testimony also included findings from his issue brief “Marijuana Reform: Fears and Facts (Update),” co-authored with Katharine A. Neill, Alfred C. Glassell, III, Postdoctoral Fellow in Drug Policy, which highlights data supporting the assertion that ending marijuana prohibition benefits society in numerous and significant ways that outweigh potential negative impacts.
