In this candid interview with Texas state representative David Smith, we discuss his bill (HB 2165).

This bill proposes not only making cannabis legal in Texas, but also to have no restrictions on cannabis at all. 

That means no dispensaries, no state regulators to oversee it, it would simply be treated like another plant like a jalepeño or a tomato. 

David’s Christian beliefs is one of the key reasons he is in favor of legalizing cannabis because “everything god made is good.”

Key quotes:

“Most politicians know  this the right thing to do but are too scared of getting reelected”

“We don’t need the government to be parents”

“freedom, responsibility and limited government”
