Video: In the Texas Legislature, Bills Filed on Marijuana, Daylight Saving Are All Fair Game

Bill filing for the 86th Legislature is well underway. Some of the pieces of legislation submitted early on offer a preview of the chambers’ priorities.

Others may be filed simply to garner headlines.

In this first episode of “Under the Dome,” the Tribune’s new mini-documentary series that provides a closer look at the inner workings of a legislative session, we take you back to Nov. 12 – the first day lawmakers and lawmakers-elect could file bills.

Watch as we explore the process, personalities and proposals aimed at legalizing medical marijuana and eliminating daylight saving time.

  • What is taking you so long Texas legislatures in legalizing something that shouldn’t be illegal in the first place!
    Is the Reefer Madness paranoia propaganda lies under the dome starting to make Y’ALL realize that Texas is falling behind in pot revenue? Even medical marijuana does have it’s benefits for those that suffer from PTSD and many other health complications.But you much rather ruin the lives of the nonviolent pot smokers and put them in your for profit prisons,$$$.
    Hopefully I’ll live to see they day that I can freely light up a big fat hooder without any fear of having Johnny Law bust down my door because someone snitch on me.
    Time to end prohibition on all marijuana, and stop acting like a bunch Gestapo’s when they do raids by the DEA. And go after the real hardcore drugs,stop arresting the potato chip hog eating munchers…..

    • Then feel free to go back to San Francisco, doper!
