The Texas NORML board has researched laws and regulations that other states have used to implement a retail marijuana market. We evaluated their pertinence to Texas and crafted an outline of suggestions for implementing a retail market in Texas. We have broken these guidelines into six sections:

1. Adult Cultivation and Possession Limits
2. State Regulation and Licensing
3. Taxation and Fees
4. Employers and Private Property
5. Expungement and Resentencing
6. Prohibited Conduct and Penalties

Legislators have been reaching out to us regarding the upcoming legislative session and what kind of retail market we should have in Texas. We will provide these guidelines to legislators to consider when they are drafting bills for the upcoming session.

Please feel free to share these guidelines with your legislator. This will help start a conversation in advance of the 2021 Legislative Session. We recommend that you review our Activist Training Guide to help you prepare.
