Marijuana Policy in Houston and Beyond


Join the Texas Federation of Hispanic Republicans, Downtown Houston Pachyderm Club, MLK Association of Texas, and Houston Young Republicans to discuss marijuana policy in Houston and statewide. Marijuana arrests make up a large portion of Harris County’s police time, jail space, and prosecutorial resources. Nearly a year has passed since District Attorney Devon Anderson, Police Chief McClelland, and former Sheriff Adrian Garcia introduced the “first chance intervention” program to divert first-time marijuana offenders out of the jail system. We will discuss the program’s results and potential expansion. We will also cover past and future statewide legislation regarding marijuana policy. Speakers: Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson Representative Gilbert Peña – House District 144 Sheriff of Fort Bend Troy Nehls Marc Levin of the Texas Public Policy Institute The panel will be moderated by Ted Oberg, investigative reporter for ABC 13 News.
