Your doctor will evaluate your condition and discuss potential treatment options. If your physician determines cannabis is right for you, they will register you with Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT). Patients do not need a written prescription since the physicians enter the prescription into CURT for the Dispensary to validate. Texas does not provide medical ID cards at all. The initial evaluation visit costs $150, which will not be charged if your doctor believes that your online visit failed to qualify you for medical cannabis. Proof of ID and the last 5 digits of your social security number are required to purchase your medicine.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law House Bill 3703, a measure that increases the number of qualifying patient conditions for medical cannabis use, which likely could increase dispensary sales in the state’s limited MMJ program.

10/21/20 - A new analysis from Vicente Sederberg LLP finds that if Texas legalized marijuana the state would see $2.7 billion in annual cannabis sales, take in $1.1 billion dollars in tax revenue per biennium and create 20,000-40,000 jobs in the industry, plus ancillary positions.

9/16/20 - Texas Republican congressional candidate Tre Pennie is calling for federal cannabis legalization and investments in communities harmed by the war on drugs, and he shared his plan exclusively with Marijuana Moment. “If done right—with proper federal regulation, oversight, and training, we can begin to lift failing communities out of poverty, reduce minority incarceration rates related to marijuana offenses and create sustainable markets resistant to online marketplace monopolies."

8/5/20 - Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) tweeted, "The House may have passed the HEROES Act, but it’s nothing more than a long list of liberal priorities that have nothing to do with #COVID19 - like tax breaks for the rich & marijuana subsidies. We need to stay in session & pass REAL relief for Texans."

About Medical Marijuana in Texas
Texas is one of the largest states in the US and is home to a number of historical and scenic locations, such as The Alamo, the San Antonio River Walk, Big Bend National Park, and Palo Duro Canyon State Park, to name a few. If you’re a sports fan, you’ll love Texas, as it is home to legendary professional teams, including the Dallas Cowboys, the San Antonio Spurs, the Dallas Mavericks, and the Texas Rangers. Texas also has a rich history of music, which is heavily influenced by the country and hip-hop music genres, with Willie Nelson, Buddy Holly, and Beyoncé to name a few.

How do I get a medical marijuana prescription in Texas?
Currently, the only way of acquiring medical marijuana in Texas is through the Compassionate Use Act, which the state passed in 2015. This act states that you must be a permanent resident of Texas, and must suffer from the condition of “intractable epilepsy”. In order to be prescribed, a certified medical cannabis physician must determine that marijuana/THC is a sensible form of treatment. Next, a second physician, certified in medical marijuana, must accede with the initial physician’s evaluation. There are currently just over 30 doctors in the state of Texas that are listed on the registry that are able to prescribe medical marijuana. However, change in Texas regarding medical cannabis laws is likely on the way. House Bill 1365, a bill that would significantly expand the legalization of medical marijuana use, has recently passed a committee vote and is expected to pass in the House.
