Texas Activists Collect Signatures To Overturn City Lawmakers’ Repeal Of Voter-Approved Marijuana Decriminalization Ballot Initiative

Texas activists are collecting signatures to reverse a move by the Harker Heights City Council to overturn a voter-approved marijuana decriminalization ballot initiative. Meanwhile, lawmakers in another Texas city, Killeen, voted to enact a similar local decriminalization initiative—but they removed a key provision.

Harker Heights was one of five Texas cities that passed decriminalization measures with strong margins on November 8, but it’s the only one so far where local lawmakers have overturned the will of voters.

Ground Game Texas, the organization that led the reform initiatives throughout the state, discussed the possibility of taking action shortly after the lawmakers passed the ordinance to repeal what voters passed on the ballot. On Tuesday, they held a press conference to detail their new effort to put cannabis back on the ballot with another referendum.
