Texas and New Hampshire Democrats add recreational legalization to their official platforms

New Hampshire’s new platform was passed by acclamation, meaning it did not require a vote to pass, while in Texas the entire platform passed by a voice vote. Democrats in both states supported alternative approaches to drug policy which shift the focus away from law enforcement.

“We believe that marijuana should be legalized, taxed and regulated,” reads the New Hampshire Democratic party’s new platform. The Texas platform offered a wider range of policy recommendations including the regulation of cannabis like alcohol and tobacco as well as the expungement of criminal records for low-level cannabis crimes. “Cannabis policy reform can improve public safety, boost our economy, and provide much-needed healthcare options for struggling Texans,” the platform reads.
