Denton County

The leading voice against marijuana law reform in Texas has lost his bid for re-election in Denton County.

A panel event entitled “Marijuana: The Meltdown of our Country” hosted earlier this week focused on combating the consumption of cannabis by children.

Sheriff Will Travis of Denton County debated two representatives of marijuana policy organizations earlier this week, resulting in crushing defeat.

Hemp recently had its first committee hearing in the Texas legislature, and it involved about a dozen supporters testifying in favor of the two bills, along with one very confused sheriff.

The fall 2013 school year started out fantastic for the University of North Texas chapter of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. The chapter’s first two meetings drew in the largest crowds the organization has seen to date.
