Could reducing marijuana punishment save Texas big money?

AUSTIN (KENS5) — Inside a crowded hearing room at the Texas Capitol, supporters waited to testify before the House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee on a bill to reduce the punishment for possession of up to an ounce of marijuana. 
 
"I found out that we spend $10,000 to prosecute on cannabis charge, yet for a year of schooling for one student the state of Texas spends $8,498," said Austin parent Jaclyn Finkel. "So we actually spend more to put someone in jail for a non-violent offense than we spend to educate our children."
