Help Bring Marijuana Decriminalization to San Antonio

Want to see this headline here in San Antonio? Local nonprofits and partners are looking to put this on your May ballot here in San Antonio.

Act4SA, a local 501c3 nonprofit is asking for your help to get the following on the ballot.

The San Antonio Justice Charter will amend the City Charter of San Antonio to adopt a justice policy that will reduce unnecessary arrests, mitigate racial bias, and save scarce public resources through a comprehensive set of popular reforms.

“A petition to amend the City Charter of San Antonio to adopt a justice policy that will reduce unnecessary arrests and save scarce public resources through a comprehensive set of reforms, including: ending enforcement of low-level marijuana possession; ending enforcement of abortion crimes; banning chokeholds; banning no-knock warrants; and encouraging citations instead of arrests for low-level nonviolent crimes.”

Download the Petition HERE

What’s on the Ballot?
01.

DECRIMINALIZATION OF MARIJUANA

Eliminate the enforcement of low level marijuana offenses

02.

BAN CHOKEHOLDS

Ban chokeholds by SAPD in ANY instance forever

03.

BAN NO KNOCK WARRANTS

Ban the use of dangerous no knock warrants except in extreme dangerous cases (such as hostage situation or exigent life circumstances)- where extensive procedure is laid out for accountability and transparency

04.

CITE AND RELEASE

Make the use of citations and the diversion program for low level misdemeanors permanent

05.

DECRIMINALIZATION OF ABORTION

SAPD officers shall not be responsible for enforcing the statewide law

06.

CREATION OF A JUSTICE DIRECTOR

Oversee the implementation of this policy and make sure future city policy follows with the purpose of this section to reduce unnecessary arrests, promote police accountability, and save scarce city resources- especially those related to public safety

Full policy language HERE.

We understand that there are elements of this Charter Amendment that are NOT libertarian.  Each person can decide for themselves whether they will support this Charter Amendment and if the marginal increase in liberty around marijuana decriminalization is worth the creation of a “Woke Czar” government position.

Once all the signatures are tallied in January, there is a possibility that the committee will make the determination that this is NOT one single Issue (currently proposed as The Justice Amendment), and instead break this omnibus into 6 separate votes on your ballot.

For this reason, LPBexar will NOT be advocating an official position on this Charter Amendment, but we know our volunteers may want to, not only support it and vote for it, but assist in getting the necessary number of signatures.
