AUSTIN, Texas — At the Capitol on Thursday, activists from all over Texas lobbied for marijuana reform.

They said they're seeing bipartisan support and think they can make a change this year.

"It's really exciting to see marijuana policy is bringing people together. And it [is] so important when we're living in such a politically polarized time in this country that we can find common ground with our neighbors," Heather Fazio, with Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy, said.
