With a new month tomorrow comes more than a thousand new changes to your laws.

And there quite a few that may affect your Labor Day weekend plans.


Starting September 1st, K2, Spice and synthetic marijuana will be illegal.

Though some believe it won't stop people from using it.

"I'm sure it'll stop some people but I mean, it's not going to stop everyone. There's ways around everything."

"People are just going to turn to regular marijuana, because if they're both illegal it doesn't really matter which one they go to at this point."

Also new tomorrow, changes in boat licensing laws.

Anyone born after Sept. 1, 1993 will now have to take a boater safety course and must carry the I.D. as proof of completion.

Failure to do so will result in a class C misdemeanor.


And those Texas highway nighttime speeds will be no more.

Which has people split.

"Personally I think the speed limits are fine as they are. We need to conserve fuel, plus people are too distracted anyway."

"Raising the speed limit is fine. I see very few people driving the speed limit as it is anyway."

But until all the signs are changed, officials say to follow the speed that is currently posted.

Lastly, dove hunting season starts tomorrow.

But thanks to this historic drought, Texas Forest Service is asking that hunters be especially careful with open flames.

Which include campfires, cigars and cigarettes.
