Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) said Thursday that he's open to marijuana
decriminalization in the Lone Star state.

“As governor, I have begun to implement policies that start us toward a
decriminalization," Perry said at a World Economic Forum panel on drug
legalization in Davos, Switzerland, according to the San Antonio
Express-News. He was referring to "drug courts" in the state that
provide treatment and softer penalties for minor offenses.

A Perry spokeswoman confirmed to the Express-News that while Perry is
opposed to legalization of the drug because of medical issues, the
governor supports policies that lower punishments for marijuana use in
order to keep smokers out of jail.

Perry has long been opposed to legalization, but as the Express-News
pointed out the governor also previously voiced support for states'
rights to legalize the drug.
