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.
