Ordinance to decriminalize marijuana now in Lubbock voters’ hands after rejected by city council
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Lubbock city council members voted unanimously to reject a proposed ordinance to decriminalize marijuana during a meeting Tuesday morning.
The motion failed 0-7 putting the proposal on the May 2024 ballot for citizens to vote on.
The vote comes after the petition, started by Freedom Act of Lubbock, gained enough signatures and was then verified by the city secretary. Of those signatures, 10,450 were submitted with 5,185 signatures validated.
