Texas is now being talked about as the newest sleeping giant among unlikely states that have a good chance of legalizing or at least decriminalizing marijuana.

Many articles have come out in the past 24 hours about Chuck’s inate ability to raise money for political candidates very easily – Makes you wonder if Chucks endorsement and influence in Texas will be a catalyst for the state’s reform for marijuana.

Chuck Norris is still best-known for his on-screen roles in TV shows and movies such as Walker, Texas Ranger and Lone Wolf McQuade, but for a few years now the martial artist’s conservative political views have been getting headlines. The most prominent example of this came two years ago when Norris and his wife released an anti-Obama video on YouTube warning of the “1,000 years of darkness” that might result from President Obama’s reelection.

Now Norris is wading back into politics in the state that helped make him famous.

Norris attended political rallys for Abbott in both San Antonio and Corpus Christi this week. The actor posted a message of support for Abbott and pictures of himself with Abbott supporters to his Facebook page on Wednesday.
