Ganjapreneur reports

Five Texas cities — Denton, Elgin, Harker Heights, Killeen, and San Marcos — voted in favor of decriminalizing low-level cannabis possession during Tuesday’s midterm elections.

Five Texas cities on Election Day voted to decriminalize low-level cannabis possession, the Texas Tribune reports. The reforms passed in Denton, Elgin, Harker Heights, Killeen, and San Marcos. 

The campaigns were backed by Ground Game Texas which earlier this year led a similar, successful, effort in Austin. 

In San Marcos, home of Texas State University, voters approved the measure with nearly 82% of the vote, the report says. The Killeen measure passed by a near-70% margin. In Elgin, almost 75% of voters backed the reforms. In Harker Hill, more than 60% of voters approved the initiative.
