26 Jun Survey Finds That 68% of Texans Favor Cannabis Decriminalization

AUSTIN, TX — Over two thirds of Texas voters support decriminalizing marijuana in the Lone Star State, according to the latest statewide poll released Wednesday.

The University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll, which asked voters about a variety of political topics, found 68% of respondents support replacing criminal penalties for marijuana possession with a civil violation and fine. Only 26% were opposed.

The poll asked voters if they would support or oppose reducing punishment for possession of small amounts of marijuana to a citation and a fine of $250.  Of those polled, 44% said they “strongly support” and 24% said they “somewhat support” the idea.  Only 15% strongly oppose and 11% somewhat oppose decriminalization.
