what is PROTECT LUBBOCK?

Protect Lubbock is a group of citizens made up of moms, dads, and grandparents, just like you, who want to keep our kids, teens, friends, and families safe from the ramifications of legalizing marijuana and who want to shed light on the facts of “Proposition A” which aims to decriminalize illegal marijuana* possession in Lubbock on May 4th.

Below are excerpts from the ACTUAL PROPOSED ORDINANCE that you have the opportunity to vote on. Your Voice & Vote Matters.

* Voting AGAINST this ordinance does not impact medical marijuana or CBD products, only the possession of illegal marijuana.

“Proposition A” Fact #1:

The Truth Uncovered

Proposition A known as “Freedom Act Lubbock” which is a part of a state-wide effort by well-funded organizers part of Ground Game Texas who are attempting to handcuff local police by prohibiting them from making arrests or issuing any citation for the possession of 4oz or smaller of marijuana.

1/4 Pound (4OZ) of

Marijuana

IS A “CLASS B” Misdemeanor and

MAKES 227 JOINTS

  • Proposition A is attempting to decriminalize the possession of marijuana up to 4oz.
  • 4 ounces can be turned into 227-300 joints.
  • 227-300 joints that can end up in the hands of kids and teens through sellers or friends who want to offer a “good time” – a good time that could lead to a lifetime of bondage and pain.

“Proposition A” Fact #2:

TRAFFIC FATALITIES

Proposition A in section 14.08.010 states that a Lubbock Police Officer can’t use the odor of marijuana or hemp as probable cause for any search or seizure. So a police officer could be hindered from stopping a potential traffic accident and fatality if they only “smelled” marijuana and didn’t “see” marijuana in the vehicle of someone under the influence.

“Proposition A” Fact #3:

POLICE OFFICERS REPRIMANDED

Make no mistake, there is an agenda behind this heinous proposition that opens the door
to put our officers at risk. Officers that we appreciate and value the work they do to protect
our families, friends, and city.

“Proposition A” Fact #4:

DEFUNDING THE POLICE

Proposition A is suggesting “BANNING FUNDS” from the Lubbock Police Department to prevent marijuana and THC testing, but where does the banning stop? We’ve seen the devastation in other cities across the country where they’ve “DEFUNDED” the police force. Will Lubbock be the next Seattle or San Francisco on this vote? No, but what happens on the next vote and the next?
