DALLAS (AP) — Democratic candidate for Texas governor Wendy Davis says she supports the use of medical marijuana and would consider decriminalizing possession of small amounts of the substance.
She explained her position Tuesday to the Dallas Morning News editorial board (http://dallasne.ws/1ju8T0p).
Davis told editors that Texas should learn from the experiences of other states when considering revamping drug laws. According to a transcript of the interview, Davis said she's not sure how she would vote if Texas had a referendum on legalizing marijuana like the ones held in Washington and Colorado.
Gov. Rick Perry has said he supports decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana, partially because the state is trying to keep non-violent offenders out of prisons. He opposes legalizing the drug and would continue to make selling it illegal.
