The Marijuana Debate and Texas

By Bill O'Neil

Where to begin? When it comes to the growing marijuana debate in Texas, one group is taking it's own survey on where people stand--and what should and shouldn't be allowed.  

"I think a lot of people still don't know how to talk about it--it's definitely not one that has become a serious issue yet at the Texas Capitol" said Phillip Martin with Progress Texas. He told 550 KTSA News the goal of the survey is to serve as a starting point for such a conversation--by asking three questions. 

"Decriminalizing small possessions of marijuana (or) allowing for medicinal use where a doctor can write a note saying that marijuana can be beneficial to a person's health, or full regulation, where we regulate marijuana just like we regulate alcohol" Martin said.
