TXMjPolicy reports that the vast amount of Texans, regardless of their political affiliation, support marijuana reform. And let’s tell them! Check out these 3 tips for crafting your message from Chelsea Spencer – That Cannabis Lawyer:

  • If you’re a consumer: point out that they are sending your money out of Texas and into other states. Tell them your story.
  • If you’re a manufacturer: show them not only how this fiscally impacts you but where you will have to move to continue manufacturing smokables. 
  • If you’re a retail or eCommerce shop: show them your sales numbers. Show them the impact of forbidding smokables in Texas and what it will do to your shop if our injunction was not in place.
  • Check out this form from Texas Norml. Once you’re ready, fill it out and they will follow up with you.
