Frequently asked questions
- Why decriminalize marijuana?
In past years, Killeen police issued thousands of citations and made hundreds of arrests for marijuana possession. These disproportionately targeted Black and Hispanic community members. To promote justice and avoid waste of tax dollars, we want to redirect resources towards real public safety solutions.
- Does this legalize marijuana?
No, legalization must happen at the state or federal level. This ordinance would direct the police department to stop issuing citations or making arrests for Class A or Class B misdemeanor marijuana possession.
- Who else is helping with this effort?
Ground Game Texas is joining with local organizations and community leaders in Killeen, like former Mayor Pro-Tem Shirley Fleming and Killeen NAACP President TaNeika Driver-Moultrie, to advance the work of decriminalizing marijuana.
