On July 14, a petition to legalize recreational and medical marijuana in Texas surpassed 40,000 signatures. The petition needs 50,000 signatures to reach its goal; at which time, it’ll be sent to San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro.
Francisco Hernandez Jr started the petition. He stated: “We are in a new day and age where marijuana has been proven to cure and prevent cancer, seizures, Parkinson’s disease, glaucoma and more. We need to come together and make the legalization of marijuana available to our great fellow Texans who are in need of this plant. So please join me and other great Texans make it happen. Cause remember we the people can make anything happen if we come together and make our voices heard.”
