Near a busy North Side intersection, dozens of San Antonians gathered Saturday afternoon to demonstrate in favor of the legalization of recreational and medical marijuana use in Texas. “As soon as we got out and we had flyers on the ground, we already had car honks going,” said Shawna Simpson, 28, who set up the event with her brother Jeremy Simpson, 30. The siblings are two of four organizers in the San Antonio area who are part of Cannabis Open Carry Walks, a statewide movement. Other walks were held Saturday in Dallas and Channelview near Houston. According to their Facebook page, Open Carry Walks began in late 2017 and will continue throughout 2018 and into 2019 with the aim of having the next Texas Legislature, which convenes in 2019, consider legislation to legalize recreational and medical marijuana use. Paul Espinoza, 50, who is recovering from a serious motor vehicle wreck in 2011, said he came out to promote marijuana use as a better alternative to prescription pain pills.
