ODESSA - It looks like Ector County School Board Member Luis Galvan will be keeping his seat after all.

It all comes after a local newspaper posted pictures of what looked like Galvan smoking marijuana.

Galvan made comments about his beliefs that marijuana should be legal which sparked some controversy.

Galvan released a statement at Tuesday night's board meeting where he apologized for any inappropriate comments he made during what he called a "distressing situation."

Several people voiced their opinions at the meeting demanding that the school district ask him to resign.

NewsWest 9's Devin Sanchez spoke with Galvan to get his side of the story. We'll have the exclusive interview tonight on NewsWest 9 at 10 p.m.
