Got Weed in Dallas? That’s A Ticket
There's been lots of loosening of marijuana laws across the country in recent years and, some of those changes have even hit the Lone Star State. While it's not a statewide change, the city of Dallas has decided to reduce possession of the wacky weed to a misdemeanor.
Beginning this fall, Dallas police will only be issuing citations to people who get busted for possession of less than 4 ounces of pot. Officials say some offenders will be released with just a ticket, as long as they're not also wanted for other crimes.
