    Mary Jane is not a drug it’s an herb

    I worry myself not, with what brand of cigarettes’ a person somewhere in my state wants to smoke. Texas laws are such we the people cant vote on bills like other states . Hmmmmm. That keeps the "old guard" with "Old Laws" in office.

    This stupid woman thinks it’s addictive? No your son already had issues before his suicide attempt.

  4. covajo9 on May 9, 2022 at 1:05 am

    Weed will carry texas far but thats only once we get actual decent reps

  5. Brianna Martinez on May 9, 2022 at 1:06 am

    addiction to marijuana and it leading to unalive??? this seems like the person had mental health issues way before marijuana played a part.

  6. Sk8em Till it’s over on May 9, 2022 at 1:06 am

  8. Ricky Entertainment940 on May 9, 2022 at 1:07 am

    Weed is good alcohol is bad

  9. Stx_hitta33 on May 9, 2022 at 1:08 am

    Her kid shouldn’t have even been smoking cannabis it’s for adult use for a reason cannabis can be helpful to a lot of people out there with anxiety depression chronic pain and so much more

  10. Marleyboy on May 9, 2022 at 1:09 am

    I was in critical condition with cancer. But never received any pain relief. Because hospitals said it could hide fevers & such that would be fatal to me at the time. I was in hell during my treatments.. In the end I survived my battle. But wouldn’t wish cancer even on my worst enemies. But w/all the children I have seen still fighting cancer. It kills me knowing the pain it’s putting them through. If it takes this to help fight cancer or gives some sort of relief. Don’t play around. Just legalize it already!

  11. overcome on May 9, 2022 at 1:10 am

    No Texas shouldn’t leglize it sorry I
    Against regardless of element we have doctors and nurses that can provide medication

  12. Levi Bailey on May 9, 2022 at 1:10 am

    My god lady, living with you would make me want to kill my self. Miss information? bitch please have you done your history the war on drugs is a disaster did nothing good, It’s a racist scam. I don’t know the government people like you telling me what to do. it’s all fucked!

  13. ArcaneTheWitchesMagick on May 9, 2022 at 1:11 am

    legal legal

  14. MM3 on May 9, 2022 at 1:12 am

    I mean there’s already so many CBD shops selling products similar to dispensaries and basically set up like a dispensaries. Texas might as well already legalize it we are headed in that direction.

  15. Noah Alcoser on May 9, 2022 at 1:12 am

    Lol like it’s going to stop people from doing it lol legalize it already

  16. Ryanpwnkins on May 9, 2022 at 1:14 am

    Some Americans get to have access to Marijuana, not everyone though.

    You know it’s part of that America is whole and equal thing.

    Pfftttt lol.

  17. Keyser The Red Beard on May 9, 2022 at 1:14 am

    impressive video FOX 7 Austin. I shattered the thumbs up on your video. Keep on up the great work.

  18. Enmanuel on May 9, 2022 at 1:16 am

    Its so fucking annoying just legalize it and also quit testing for it at jobs. What i do in my free time is none of your concern. I do understand harder lab man made drugs. That lady is also ridiculous, alcohol kills and puts more people in jail everyday. It also makes you do things you normally wouldn’t do like other drugs. I would alcohol is the gateway drug. 💯

  19. Adam Everett on May 9, 2022 at 1:16 am

    There’s a lot of people here in the state of Texas and that would be a lot of people off of opioids if marijuana was legalized bad business for the pharmaceutical companies.

  20. Jorge Cisneros on May 9, 2022 at 1:17 am

    Because of people like that stupid woman whose child tried suicide instead of putting more attention to him is giving marijuana bad rep when in reality the medication she talks about is full of chemicals our body doesn’t need and will affect in other areas unlike marijuana it’s one compound that goes to work and reliefs many effects

  21. KING FISH / PHILL on May 9, 2022 at 1:20 am

    Legalize and decriminalize nation wide hopefully the ( MoreAct will free Texas )
    The bill passed congress/ senate , see what governor Greg Abbott going to do now , if he doesn’t get on the ball he’s going to loose to BETO O’Rourke he’s for legalization 70 percent of Texans want legalization ✌

  22. Virginia Thomas on May 9, 2022 at 1:20 am

    That lady working for the ones that trying to keep it illegal

  23. Vidal Moreno on May 9, 2022 at 1:24 am

    you go through the fire then you can tell me where to draw the line hell live in with her is what made him commit sue aside 😡😡😡

  24. Jo Jo on May 9, 2022 at 1:24 am

    They could make a lot of money fucking do it already it’s medicine.

  25. BC LR on May 9, 2022 at 1:25 am

    I’m sorry for her son but if that lady thinks pain medications, anxiety medications and PTSD medications are better then THC she’s wrong. Science doesn’t back that, I would know. This is similar to a case in the 90s about anabolic steroids when a young man committed suicide after quitting them. One he was taking a steroid meant for experiments on rats. Two he was already diagnosed with depression and placed in antidepressants which also show side effects of suicide.
    I’m sorry for her son but it sounds like he has much bigger problems then THC abuse. She also has to much time on her hands if she’s trying to keep a medications away from cancer patients and military with PTSD. Opiates cause more then fifty thousand over doses a year when marijuana can not scientifically be related to any deaths directly.
    Shame on her

  26. judith sterling mendoza on May 9, 2022 at 1:25 am

    she is lying

  27. Ricky Entertainment940 on May 9, 2022 at 1:26 am

    We should be able too vote 🗳 all of Texans why can’t we vote for it too be legal why aren’t they giving us that opportunity or option why are we allowing them too say what happens happens we still get too vote 🗳 don’t we still have freedom or no ? Seems like more an more we are t allowed too do anything

  28. ta bou on May 9, 2022 at 1:26 am

    Alcohol is also harmful and dangerous lady who left Colorado. Please stop demonizing a plant.

  29. ArcaneTheWitchesMagick on May 9, 2022 at 1:29 am

  30. Guylazoe on May 9, 2022 at 1:33 am

    1:43 what’s up with her nose?

  31. Gurb on May 9, 2022 at 1:35 am

    Fuck this country

  32. jimmy on May 9, 2022 at 1:37 am

    what are you waiting for? old alcoholics to die off ?

  33. T Mims on May 9, 2022 at 1:37 am

    That boy was on some other hard drugs if he’s having thoughts of suicide 🤣😂😂 MAYBE METH😂

  34. balloo_gaming on May 9, 2022 at 1:38 am

    Just because he was on marijuana he was probably trying to cope with how life was you’re blaming the drug but you not being in your son’s life enough and making sure he’s okay most parents use every excuse for the lack of parenting if something bad happens

  35. ram bo on May 9, 2022 at 1:39 am

    That woman is just butt hurt and anti weed … her son probably tried to kill himself because of her not pot …

  36. GG got it on May 9, 2022 at 1:40 am

    You dont know if hes poping pills sounds like your son is sketchy at the last part

  37. ArcaneTheWitchesMagick on May 9, 2022 at 1:41 am


  38. Man on May 9, 2022 at 1:46 am

    IF Texas does it. FL WILL BE next

  39. Jorge Manso on May 9, 2022 at 1:46 am

    A "normal life" without drugs makes thousands take their lives every year…

    Human history… a life full of problems…why do we do this?

    Is there a problem before we are born?…why bring people into this existence then?
    Ecclesiastes 4:2-

    And I declared that the dead, are happier than the living…
    But better is to never have been born…

  40. Normog Gaming on May 9, 2022 at 1:47 am

    Legalize in Texas

  41. Logan Whitaker on May 9, 2022 at 1:48 am

    holy shit id love to rip that "mom" a new one. your son tried killing himself and the only thing you can think to do is blame it on the weed? WEED was the reason your son tried to end his own life? looks like you know as much about your son as you do cannabis. get your son some actual help and an actual mom whos going to love him enough to know what’s going on in his world instead of blaming your failure as a parent on weed.

  42. KID AMNESIAC on May 9, 2022 at 1:48 am

    That’s it. Texas really needs to get their shit together and realize weed isn’t a hard drug or something you can die from. The Texas government filled with boomers need to see that it helps instead of being so goddamn greedy and overprotective like what? They still allow alcohol, tobacco, vapes, even cbd delta 8 shops but they have a problem with fucking thc weed? Such major hypocrisy. Texas will get their respect again when they finally listen to the people. As of now fuck those mindless shit for brains. I swear dude

  43. Haunted Archives on May 9, 2022 at 1:49 am

    Its ab goddamn time

  44. Nestor Velez on May 9, 2022 at 1:50 am

    Id want to kill myself to if i lived under her house hold

  45. Brad Elliott on May 9, 2022 at 1:54 am

    Wtf makes ptsd worse crack pot uneducated if your kid was educated it wouldent be our problem ur kids a looser in your eyes

  46. Phillip Saucedo on May 9, 2022 at 1:55 am

    This is bs texas messing up the weed game and texas only has a 1 percent thc percent no higher then that u don’t need no program cause it’s the same shit cannibis is not dangerous shut ur ass up woman u just one of those racist ass peaple but I bet u want guns though

  47. Rbot Def on May 9, 2022 at 1:55 am

    Texas will be one of the last states that will legalize weed unfortunately it’s been like 10 years since Colorado legalized it and yet here I am in 2020 still buying of the streets risking jail just to enjoy something that is less harmful then alcohol I don’t want to come home and unwind with a beer you ever woke up with a hangover or yeah work sucks extra hard when you dehydrated and buzzed still from yesterday smoke a joint before bed wake up feeling great smoke one more in the morning good da go for work and I’m not as pissed off that I’m working doing something that I probably don’t wanna do work sucks and at times so does our society land of the free but all they really want is to control us its time to change shit American 🇺🇸 we need some new faces and ideas in office I’m so sick and tired of the older generation war and alcohol y’all make me sick

  48. Gypsy on May 9, 2022 at 1:58 am

    Marijuana does have scientific research to help PTSD And it does not lead to suicide if anything helps prevent suicide the ladies very lost

  49. Anthony navarro on May 9, 2022 at 1:58 am

    Texas treat the people like kids just 1% thc your crazy they are a joke in texas

  50. Sk8em Till it’s over on May 9, 2022 at 2:00 am
