Weed Could Be Legal In Texas If Newly-Elected Senator's Bill Goes Through

Election day led to four more states legalizing marijuana, and now Texas could be the next. 

Democratic State Senator-elect from San Antonio Roland Guitierrez proposed a bill shortly after winning his seat that would legalize cannabis in the state.

Texas, which has seen THC laws get a little less strict in recent years, could even see up to $3.2 billion in revenue and 30,000 new jobs according to Guitierrez.

Texas currently has a legal limit on THC (the element of weed that makes you high), which permits products such as CBD to contain no more than 0.3% THC. 

The Real Cannabis Legalization Act, which will legalize medical and recreational use, will now have to go through the state legislature and Republican Governor Greg Abbott in a January legislative session.

Gutierrez flipped the previously Republican-held seat in the general elections just last week.

Before winning this spot, he served on the Texas House of Representatives for the south side of San Antonio.

During the election, he even received an official endorsement from now President-elect Joe Biden.
