El Paso, TX (KTSM) — The one topic that might bring Democrats and Republicans together: marijuana?
Congressman Beto O'rourke agrees with Governor Rick Perry. U.S. Rep. O'Rourke says states should be allowed to change their drug policies.
O'rourke says the country needs new strategies and quote:"I look forward to hearing the Governor's plan to reduce drug-related incarceration in Texas and move towards a more humane and fiscally responsible policy than our state currently has in place."
This comes one day after Governor Rick Perry said he's in favor of legalizing marijuana and that he wants to decriminalize the drug in the Lonestar State.
