Corpus Christi will consider enacting a state cite and release law for marijuana offenders at an upcoming city council meeting.

Each month 100-120 people are arrested for marijuana in Dallas. The city is now considering making use of a cite and release law passed by state legislators in 2007.

Changes are coming in the Houston area where some people who are caught with marijuana will not be put in jail.
