When Will Cannabis Be Legal in Texas?

texas cannabis laws

Legislation in the Lone Star State is many things but swift to update Texas cannabis laws is not one of those descriptions. Widely pinpointed as the originating spot of cannabis prohibition in the United States, El Paso, Texas saw this movement begin in 1915 as a government-led exertion of social control over immigrant workers from Mexico, who had brought across the border the cultural practice of using cannabis as a medicine. Today, complete removal of prohibition is difficult, as the Texas Constitution doesn’t allow for voter referendum, AKA changes to the law must go through the legislative process. Senate leader and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has regularly blocked bills attempting to expand medical cannabis and decriminalize possession, as he sees these as potential pathways to recreational legalization. Despite these efforts, some things are happening that are favorable to the industry for Texas cannabis legalization.

New Texas Cannabis Laws

Signed into law on June 15th by Governor Abbott, HB 1535 will go into effect on September 1, 2021; this important legislation expands medical conditions that allow for legal Texas cannabis use. Now, all those suffering PTSD and all forms of cancer may partake. Further, the amount of THC available in a single product has increased from less than 0.5% to 1%; this will reduce the amount of carrier oil needed in a tincture and increase the amount allowed in a single edible item. As the THC amounts were already being prescribed, the passage of this bill actually means less carrier oils will be needed for dosing. Consumption of flower products via smoking remains prohibited.

The following conditions will allow medical cannabis use in one month’s time:

i) epilepsy;

(ii) a seizure disorder;

(iii) multiple sclerosis;

(iv) spasticity;

(v) amyotrophic lateral sclerosis;

(vi) autism;

(vii) [terminal] cancer; [or]

(viii) an incurable neurodegenerative disease;

(ix) post-traumatic stress disorder; or

(x) a medical condition approved for a research program under Subchapter F, Chapter 487, Health and Safety Code, and for which the patient is receiving treatment under that program.

In late May, the Texas Senate approved a bill to reduce penalties for possession of concentrates. This measure would downgrade possession of up to two ounces to a class B misdemeanor. Although approved, the bill cannot yet go to the governor’s desk for review because senator revisions mean it must first go back to its originating chamber.

As the group, Republicans Against Marijuana Prohibition (RAMP) continues to petition the Governor for cannabis reforms that benefit more Texans, a newly established progressive assembly called Ground Game Texas unveiled a campaign to put an initiative to decriminalize cannabis possession and ban no-knock warrants on the upcoming November ballot in Austin. Former Democratic congressional candidate Mike Siegel, founder of the organization, suggested recently that tapping into the popularity of marijuana reform at the local level could “unlock massive progressive victories” across the state in 2022. A strong majority of Texans support broad reform, according to polling completed in June. Sixty percent of voters in the state support making cannabis legal “for any use,” signaling local initiatives for more modest proposals like decriminalization will likely prevail where they qualify for local ballots.

Citizen Legalization Support

Citizens are showing their support for Texas legalization of cannabis outside of the polling numbers. In Fort Worth on July 24th, hundreds of people participated in a pro-pot reform rally, with a side of mild civil disobedience. The event was organized by the Fort Worth-Dallas chapter of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. “We have strong bipartisan support,” said Jax Finkle, executive director of Texas NORML, “but we have to apply pressure to the lieutenant governor and the Senate to help advance common-sense policies. They are cost-effective to the taxpayer, will meet the needs of medical patients, and will bring necessary reform to the criminal justice system.”

Shouts of “Let them out!” could be heard as the marchers passed by the Tarrant County Corrections Center, as well as “Legalize it now!” upon arrival at the steps of City Hall. Here, a rally and smoke session were conducted as police watched from across the street. No citations were issued; Fort Worth recently deprioritized arrests for low-level marijuana crimes.

While you’re waiting on Texas cannabis legalization and updates to Texas cannabis laws, there’s hope. Just across the northern Texas border, CannaCon will be hosting the nation’s leading business-to-business cannabis conference from March 31 to April 1, 2022. The event held in Oklahoma City is to educate cannabis business owners on all things related to cannabis and CBD, and therefore, expand the industry. The trade show features a large exhibition hall with exhibitors from around the country as well as seminars delivered by industry experts.

    Agree !! Legalize it and keep people from dying with all these medications given ! When one thing can help tremendously!

  2. Leah Thompson on August 26, 2021 at 7:47 pm

    I’m sorry….it’s just time it be made legal. Recreationally and medically. Sure the medical marijuana has a place in Texas now but I just don’t see how moonshine can be made legal concidering what else is made from the same sort of process that is a felony offence if caught with(meth) and marijuana is still treated like it is a man made white substance! I can honestly say with my own eyes and experience that marijuana just makes places and people more calm, and there most certainly is less crime. Being a substance abuse patient, I also have obstructive sleep apnea which can cause seizures. I unfortunately do suffer from Gran Mal seizures from this sleep disorder. I can say that this helps me sleep, helps me deal and treat the after effects of the seizures I have and I have noticed my self and have had long periods where I may sleep better and even though having seizures still I’m not having them as often. And addiction to marijuana, I see addiction to marijuana way different than an addiction to hard drugs like meth. I could care less if I have a week or two to wait for what I’m wanting to have for my personal use when I’m not able to buy. Call it a mind over matter or a store down the road has CBD, not the same thing, and it may not satisfy me but it does what I’m taking it for, helps me sleep, and eases the issues with the seizures after I have them. And these issues I wouldn’t wish on anyone. I have horrible headaches, extream fatigue for a few days sometimes after just one seizure, the auras are bad too…..the freaked out feelings are awful. Having the sadness feeling when I don’t know why but I’m crying. The shaking that can happen sometimes during a seizure can leave muscles tense and irritating feeling. Like having been on my feet for hours and haven’t been doing nothing. Yes, marijuana helps. Also yeah a night cap after watching a long movie before bed is awesome too. And during this covid-19, it has so many abilities to be consumed by it’s consumer that a group of people be it friends of family could enjoy safely. Just stating facts. It can be ate in cookies, used in oils, or smoked in a joint, a pipe.or a bong. And away from people outdoors! Other people on hard drugs tend to hide indoors and share each other’s aparatasis. Some become violent and do crazy harsh hostile things. Another good Fact.
    In conclusion…….legalizing marijuana would take money out of the drug cartels that try to send it across the boarder and we could pay off our U.S. taxes and get back in control of our finances across the United States. I just wish people would put their old thoughts and ways they were taught it was so horrible. After all in the Holy Bible the book of Genesis says any green seed that sprouts green plant was meant for humanities use. Unfortunately this means the coca plant too but if you could keep the manufacturing hands off of it we might have another medicine that could be used for medical purposes. Yes it may need to stay medically legal, but marijuana has less harm than alcohol. Marijuana should have been legalized recreationally across the United States before moonshine was. Just saying!

    I have ptsd and wanted to ask or how do l get my Marijuana medical card?

  4. Dwight Moreland on September 4, 2021 at 3:36 pm

    I have chronic pain and sometimes I need instant relief. And the carrier oils are too slow.

  5. Shelley Allen on September 6, 2021 at 1:24 pm

    What about diseases like cystic fibrosis LAMS disease Lou gherigs this is blantant medical racism I have LAMS disease and deserve to have the right to try medical marijuana as a pain relief try having your lungs collapse it discrimination to all people with rare diseases

  6. Cedric B. Evans on September 7, 2021 at 10:21 am

    I would like to use 100 acres of land in Texas for the production of medical marijuana and lease the land to an existing medical marijuana growing company. Would you provide me with any information that you can to assist me with this project.

  7. Adam on September 8, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Just legalize recreational already for crying out loud. Alcohol kills more people a year and that’s legal but pot which hasn’t killed anyone and you literally can not overdose because it’s impossible to smoke your weight is illegal. You’re telling me the liquid death alcohol is legal. More teens die from drunk driving every year. More people die of liver failure from alcohol every year. It’s unbelievably unreal just how corrupt the United States really is. You let states legalize cocaine and heroine, major killer drugs which can lead to murder and overdose, but make a what you call a hallucinogen (which pot is clearly not) illegal. I have adhd, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, chronic migraines and tension headaches and bad knees and pills don’t help, yet let’s give me something that can kill me being addictive instead of a plant that does no harm and actually helps me focus, reduces my headaches ten fold, manages my pain and calms me down. But fuck my liver and personal health because y’all can’t regulate tax on weed even though it’s a multi billion dollar industry AND helped reduce crime in one americas cities by fifty percent. Y’all are unbelievable. Get with the program and quit fucking around with yalls dicks in yalls hands.

  8. Jen on September 8, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Even if they legalize or not. Can somebody pass a law to tell these dopers / marijuana users to confine the stinking smell to their lungs.

    People who do not use and smoke marijuana are entitled to clean air and safety from second hand smoke!

    Anyone who stinks up apartments, homes, public places, parking lots and apartment complexes must be monitored and penalized if THEY DO NOT ReSpect non- smoker rights

    Some of these users have their brains fried so bad they steal to support their vice in the name of “ medication”

  9. Douglas Hunter on September 10, 2021 at 3:25 am

    I’m 59 years old i’ve smoked weed since I was 16 years old or younger the only time I didn’t smoke pot was when I couldn’t afford it. I’m very excited about the future of Texas weed. Over the years I’ve learned secrets how about growing weed. So give me some good seeds and I’ll throw you some good weeds. I’ll tell you what man cigarette tobacco is packed with chemicals. Marijuana is fresh clean and natural

  10. dennissherrill on September 12, 2021 at 6:03 am

    Rheumatoid arthritis patients for pain relief can benefit greatly from using CBD. with .5% thc for pain relief but our hard nose Republican Dan Patrick and Abbott did not include this on the list. Vote them out!

  11. Billy bob on September 17, 2021 at 2:44 pm

    Make it legal like every other state retards

  12. Kelly Gonzalez on September 19, 2021 at 6:09 am

    I found this article very informative and interesting. I’m hoping cannabis will soon be legalized in Texas recreationally.

  13. James (jim) patton on September 20, 2021 at 1:21 am

    Texas use will meet Oregon sales last year of 100 million pounds of sales which if taxed at the properly rate in the USA of 25 percent it will the state of texas 160 billion dollars per year

  14. James patton on September 20, 2021 at 1:35 am

    Texas needs someone on the state laws board whom is up to date on the pitfalls in other states I can help then outwit h the help of my grandson boone mohel so is an attorney with a UBE grade 193 cum a ode from south texas law in Houston texas

  15. Jaren on September 22, 2021 at 11:09 am

    As a productive tax paying citizen I fear that I will lose everything due to being caught with cannabis regardless of the outcome criminalizing someone for a plant that god him self created to heal the sick and the weak Is in human and should be treated as a civil offense with 0 consequences I get that y’all need the money every way that y’all can get it I just ask that y’all can fully legalize me and millions of other people are hurting every day and need this medicine just to stay productive and be able to enjoy life I love each and everyone of y’all but this has to stop!!! LEGALIZE for world peace.

  16. Chester Holden on September 24, 2021 at 9:47 pm

  17. Mike Citizen on September 27, 2021 at 1:52 pm

    Texas will never see weed legal until Dems see a majority in the texas congress, additionally we must get rid of our TRUMPTARDYCK governor Greg Abbott.

  18. Daniel Henry Delaney jr. on September 28, 2021 at 5:27 pm

    Come on Texas, be bold…Total legalization of Marijuana is a MUST!

  19. Lewis Morales on October 4, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    Tax payers , won’t have to pay up keep
    Of jailed afenders for real crime
    Afenders with more serious offences

  20. Law Silva on October 6, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    It’s a win win for the people and the crooks that are also known as political representatives. It would create jobs from Growers to dispensaries to suppliers , excetera excetera, plus the amount of money that can generate from wonderful plant that heals.

  21. Sabrina on October 8, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Make it legal for recreation. Plenty of people already smoke it and it is a magical drug. Pot heads don’t act like crack heads. Pot heads are calm and also very healthy despite their food choices. I’ve checked blood pressure. They always have very nice skin. Im pretty sure that it helps you to focus on the good things in life and promotes over all well being. It is not harmful. However I do not recommend for kids under the age of 18 unless they have serious behavior issues like ADHD. I think low dose thc would actually be really good for them but very low (technically high). I mean I’m not a doctor but it’s something that should be tested considering some children already do and in some towns there are no one who doesn’t smoke weed. One thing is it needs government regulated to get rid of the stigma that it’s bad for one and for two we need to make sure that drug dealers cannot sell crappy product and harm society. Also marijuana is less of a drug and more of a really strong tea that helps with various bodily functions. Also edibles and vaping or fresh plants are the best options. Thc drops for your drink. It won’t impair a long time user like it will someone just starting out and therfor people won’t be intoxicated after a couple of days of regular dosing. For random use at random times I recommend those people stay home after use.

  22. Owl on October 10, 2021 at 9:36 am

    Dan Patrick is out of touch with over 60%
    of the people of Texas ! Who is he working for? The cartels have millions of dollars to buy political favors to protect
    this source of revenue. This is a billion dollar industry controlled by a few good ol boys that are raking in the cash here in Texas , and it’s time to change. Mexico legalized marijuana years ago ,political
    Rats still prevent the sales , for the good of the people

    • Terry on November 16, 2021 at 10:07 am

      Dan Patrick needs to be gone. We need to get someone in there who is for Legalization of marijuana. We need a real plan and it needs to get rid of that ridiculous low thc level of just 1 %. Why do we have such idiots running our state. Dan find a job be ugly are on a short rope ass hole . My life was turned upside down for the last 6 years because I have lots or stuff happening and I don’t need to explain it all here. We need to fix this and not keep fucking around. Some of us need help and we need it now .

    • [email protected] on November 21, 2021 at 3:25 pm

      Sooner we legalize Texas become wealthy and stronger and more powerful than ever. Don’t mess with Texas.

    • Saralee Juarez on January 9, 2022 at 10:33 am

      Why is it that Texas has to be the last to do anything with this country.. get out of the middle ages.. step up to the platform and legalize canabis.. it’s pathetic. That people are leaving Texas. To be closer to those are legal

  23. Becky fields on October 11, 2021 at 11:05 am

    We need to legalize it here in Texas some of us with medical issues would be better off than Putting all those pills down us that’s going to mess up our liver legislation needs to legalize it now

    • Dori Hanke on November 4, 2021 at 12:35 pm

      I totally agree

    • Kimberly Anne Shaw on November 5, 2021 at 11:36 am

      I live in Oklahoma and have been waiting for marijuana to be legalized in Texas so I can move there. I’m sure it will be legalized soon probably within a year maybe 2 at the most.

    • Cale on November 20, 2021 at 2:51 am

      . I lost my brother due to Pills… They need to stop trying to control the percentage the .5% & 1% isn’t right either. The only reason Alcohol, & Nicotine is limited bc too much at one time can kill you. That’s not the case with Cannabis. If you smoked everyday for pain ect… Your tolerance goes up. So I wish the Government would leave it alone! It’s Natural. Honestly It’s safer than anything else… Sad that Tx’s hasn’t legalized it, yet Oklahoma legalized it years ago… Time to start selling it like cigarettes, & make the state, as well as the country more money… Lord knows we need it, not just for money, but for all sorts of conditions that need to be treated… Weed could be the answer to world peace… lmao!

    • Evelyn on November 21, 2021 at 4:55 pm

      I have gualcoma and when I smoke I can see the tv better. So there probably more people out there like that. So they need to legalize it

    • Nope on November 23, 2021 at 2:34 am

      Absolutely I am currently a Maryland resident and have my medical card for a slew of autoimmune and mental health issues and I am moving to Texas in a week and I don’t know what to do. I literally can’t eat without pot so I guess it’s back to taking my chances with random drug dealers from Instagram 🙄

    • LisaI Lacourciere on December 11, 2021 at 2:58 pm

      I totally agree with you. I can’t wait until they do legalize it because I have what they call ostronecrosis, which means death to bones due to lack of blood flow.

    • James Ogan on December 18, 2021 at 8:23 pm

      👍

    • Chanda Sutton on January 13, 2022 at 11:21 pm

      Texas needs to legalize marijuana it helps people with Medical issues in so many ways.They also need to recognize medical cards from different states especially if they are Traveling threw with their meds (canabis) .It’s past time to Help people who have legit reason for this to be legalize.

  24. Pay Petry on October 12, 2021 at 8:21 am

    so many states are making big money, and why don’t they make it legal? people like Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick are holding up things. People are drinking and killing people, but Alcohol is legal. They know cannabis is more helpful than harmful, but people will stop taking all those drugs they fill you up with. yeah i believe they painting the pockets of the Politician’s pockets. Selfish breed.it helps with everything, including pain.Texas will be a better place to live, i hate it here!

    • John on December 16, 2021 at 8:00 am

      Oklahoma, New Mexico and Louisiana

      All three have passed medical and are working towards general sales

      Revenue will be given to these states just like millions go to the same three states in gamblings.

      Stop exporting our revenue.

    • Freda Ferguson on January 11, 2022 at 6:45 am

      Sadly this shows that other states have the upper hand when it comes to this ,because of not only the money that it generates for the government ,as well as creation of jobs driving up the market for everything else . People will leave a state or drive over to another state to obtain what will be the salvation of lives

  25. Richard Walling on October 12, 2021 at 7:37 pm

    It’s about time they Legalized Cannabis

  26. John Kennedy on October 16, 2021 at 9:25 am

    I lived in Oregon for 36 yrs, I had kept a medical marijuana card current for 15 yrs,until it became recreational, and so no need to purchase a card. Now living in Texas,it has been hell,with Texas’s backwards approach on marijuana,considering leaving the state cause, Texas sucks when it comes to letting people use marijuana,”hey Texas grow a brain,and legalize it recreationally

    • Daniel Didgeon on December 5, 2021 at 10:20 am

      We have to get rid of gov. Abbott! He so damn ignorant and thick-headed. He has been our greatest block to legalization in texas!

  27. Julie Nicholson on October 20, 2021 at 3:36 am

    I am so tired of people being able to get DRUNK and drive or cause trouble while drunk but people can’t smoke weed!!! While on weed you never want to fight and people don’t kill people on weed. This is so wrong on so many levels! I think they should make weed legal and get rid of alcohol !!! This world would be a much happier and peaceful place to be and that’s not counting all the ways weed helps people be healthier and in less pain. I think people are just afraid of what they don’t understand but everyone knows how bad drinking is and still that’s ok for some stupid reason.

    • Tiff Sanchez on November 3, 2021 at 8:11 am

      I so agree. Outlaw the alcohol and legalize marijuana. It has so many benefits and so much less harm than alcohol. People are killed daily because of drinking and driving. But an individual can just run into a store and grab a little bud for pain or to relax. Makes zero sense.

      I feel that. I’ve been diagnosed with clinical depression and anxiety disorder. Pills have never helped but weed has. Very disappointed to see Texas still hasn’t woken up. Hopefully our state representatives change their minds soon.

  30. Cassie J. on October 31, 2021 at 4:04 am

    This entire country needs a reboot of all the primitive thinking about weed, tobacco, and alcohol. Tobacco and cause millions of deaths every year, yet politicians refuse to talk about the dangers of alcohol and the unhealthiness of tobacco. I’m sick and tired of certain individuals being able to dictate anyone’s vice or personal habits. Alcohol causes liver problems, and tobacco causes lung issues, but it’s okay for individuals to kill themselves with these. Marijuana is natural, and it was put here for a purpose. These old men and/or politicians with their ancient way of thinking should not be allowed to hold-up progress. Their old behinds need to retire.

  31. Deb on November 3, 2021 at 5:23 am

    I moved here from a state where I had a medical card for marijuana due to my severe chronic pain. I didn’t use it to get high but it helped tremendously with my pain management. For the 3 years I’ve lived in Texas it’s been hell for me. Texas is so far behind the times! The money the state can make for road repair and school renovations alone is worth legalizing it. But instead, Texas keeps it illegal so the dealers are makers are fortune instead. And alcohol is harmful because people go to nars to drink and then they drive. All marijuana does is mellow people out, calm people down and make people happy. Wow, how about that! People being happy! Let’s go Texas! Help your farmers at the same time! Get on board!

  33. Bill B K on November 7, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    Funny, how Republicans like Abbott and Patrick, will scream “my body my choice” when it comes to their objections to vaccines, but they are more than happy to play big brother / the state knows best when it comes to marijuana. Hypocrats
    Maybe they can be made to understand the massive amount of tax revenue Texas is losing..
    …but that would require some intelligence.

  34. Tammy on November 8, 2021 at 1:01 pm

    I just got my prescription through Texas compassionate use program I have a compressed cervical spine. And my prescription is 300 mg the whole container it’s 10 mg of gummy and I’m supposed to cut it in four pieces and take two pieces one in the morning and one in that yeah this isn’t going to work for me it’s ridiculous because all that the THC that’s in what I get as a prescription in Texas is 1% and that’s nothing what Texas is giving us is not helping our pain or anything else because there’s not enough of a percentage of the THC. TEXAS IS RIDICULOUS AND THEY NEED TO LEGALIZE MARIJUANA FOR THE GOOD OF OUR COUNTRY THEY DON’T RECOGNIZE THE PROFIT THAT THEY COULD MAKE IF THEY LEGALIZED IT WE WOULDN’T HAVE A DEFICIT ANYMORE AND 4 OR 5 YEARS I PROMISE BECAUSE YOU WOULD HAVE PEOPLE FLOODING THE DISPENSARIES..
    IT ALSO BE LESS CRIME IF MARIJUANA WAS LEGALIZED. I’M ONE OF THEM IT’S ABOUT READY TO LEAVE BECAUSE OF THAT FACT THERE’S TOO MANY OTHER STATES THAT HAVE IT LEGAL MAYBE I NEED TO GO LIVE IN ONE OF THEM OTHER STATES EVEN THOUGH TEXAS IS MY HOME BORN AND RAISED…

  35. Diana Holland on November 10, 2021 at 4:32 pm

    So many of the folks that are against legalizing marijuana in Texas used it themselves in the60s., 70s and 80s and many probably do still. But they don’t believe that our young people can handle the same thing that they enjoyed and used. Please quit being hypocrites. If you didn’t use it you knew someone who did that are successful upstanding citizens today. Let’s bring Texas into the new century and quit holding onto unjustified and unreasonable laws. All you good old boys make a toast to that!

  36. Charles "Bronson" Dear on November 12, 2021 at 1:37 pm

    I’m sure this will mean absolutely nothing, but you F”$#ING idiots that supposedly care about the Texas people are a damn joke! I’ve been waiting my entire life to see that God given medicine legalized, and we were supposed to be the fifth state to do it, but hell no here we are 20+ states later and still dragging your Goddamn feet! GET OFF YOUR SUPREME HIGH HORSE, and do something for us for a change. The shit kills cancer for Christ sakes maybe that why you don’t want to do it! That would be the reason I HATE this fucking state!

  40. Daniel Shays on November 17, 2021 at 10:51 am

    Republican opposition to weed is a smoking gun that they are NOT Christian Conservatives.

    God demands that all people gather in a tabernacle full of QNHBS. That’s Hebrew using our Latin based script. With vowels it would be QaNuHBoS.

    It’s Cannabis. Period. No other translation possible.

  41. Doug Miles on November 17, 2021 at 12:45 pm

    just follow the money, phama companies lining Dan Patrick’s (and others) pockets. We can’t allow for the creation of multi-millions dollars in tax dollars going to the state, then Dan Patrick would lose out on his millions. It is a shame that the greed of a few affects the the good of thousands

    I’d like to take a moment to remind everyone of how the war on drugs is rooted in racism so as much as we absolutely need to get marijuana federally legal we also need to make sure that we do it in a way that will free people previously incarcerated for marijuana charges and make having a cannabis business more accessible for people of color and those who were previously incarcerated for nonviolent marijuana charges

    Cannabis has so many positives and very very few negatives if any. Taking pills for everything is not the answer. Drinking is so much worse and causes a safety risk to the public unlike cannabis. Texas is disappointing and needs to wake up or get left behind.

    Texas is so behind on times, weed has been a very beneficial medicine for thousands of years and our idiot governor Abbott fails to see or understand! You could literally save peoples life’s but they would rather shove big pharmaceuticals down our throat! I have lived in Texas for 36 years and am seriously thinking about moving to a weed friendly state!

  45. Tylan on November 28, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    It’s long overdue they want to make as much as they can serving these harmful pills. That’s why they don’t want to legalize marijuana. We are all on to you legalize it. It will help alot of people.

    I’m Vietnam Vet and the gummies work but we the people want to smoke it also and believe it should be legalized in the Great State of Texas for recreational use I’m big supporter of Governor Abbott and Dan Patrick but they need to get off their duff and pass a law for the recreational use I’m soon to be 67 years old and it does help me and I do not drink so the Marijana Helps with my PTSD

    The feds need to decriminalize week and then Texas should legalize. Get with the will of the people.

    Cannabis is less harmful than Tylenol and should be another choice for Texas. I personally avoid alcohol as it makes me feel like crap the next day. If any substance affects your life in a negative way, you simply learn to control its consumption. How many times does one need to get fired from a job before they realize it’s a bad idea to go to work inebriated? The same applies to cannabis. We don’t need a nanny state! I think there are much better matters our law enforcement should focus on than what people do in the privacy of their homes. If they’re driving impaired because of cannabis, that’s a different situation and the penalties should be like alcohol. But other than that, if people enjoy the effects of THC in their homes and are otherwise not affecting anyone else, they should be able to enjoy their vise in peace.

    Yes but I’m on the texas compationate act for prescription, and I costs 100$ for 30 gummies,plus delivery, and I just found out on this site that the gummies iv Ben getting for an arm and leg,are analyzing giving me delta9, I’m appalled

    I have epilepsy and have had it for over 45 yrs now and got diagnosed with ptsd and depression… along with other health problems…. I think it should be legalized in Texas.

  51. Woo Garza on December 15, 2021 at 4:52 am

    Texas is way behind the times.. How hard is it to look at the numbers.. Numbers don’t lie! 60% believe the plant is safe n harmless.. Other states are laughing all the way to the bank..I think Texas is scared of change . The officials hrre are use to making $$$$ off penalties and punishment!! But the economic boom of legalizing cannabis will make that chump change look like crums in comparison.. It’s time to get hip Dan Patrick.. You should let the state prosper and give the people what they want..

    T
    Texas needs to get with the program and Relize Caninbis is very helpful for people with medical needs.Tjwy also need to recognize other patients from out of state who have a valid medical card cause they went and got treatment . Relize people travel with there meds (canabis) so they Don’t get in trouble! Texas needs to Relize and Make marijuana legal for people in need!Stop being asshat over it and get the Ball rolling.It HELPS In so many ways.

    Texas will never leagalize Marajuna. Number one reason is Tax on Booz is their number one tax and they have control over that. A bottle of Jack Fire here is 35 dollars in Colorado where I live 60% of my time is 19 dollars. I moved to Colorado 5 years ago because I need it for my Health. I love Texas But Texas doesn’t love me bottom line. When you drink you get stupid and fight with everyone. When I smoke all I fight with is the bag of cookies I’m trying to open. Dan Patrick is the biggest Ass in Texas and Abbot is his Bitch . Texas wake up there are people that really need it and enjoy it. I would rather get high then drink. O yea I’m a die hard Republican but something thing are so stupid that they stand behind. Baby is all about money and control.

  55. Smokey the bear on December 29, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    If legalized too many cops, judges, lawyers, prison guards will be out of work. If Republicans wanna stay in control they have to regalize it before federal government does. I think it will be all legal in 2022

  56. Tony on January 1, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    You have to vote. You vote like minded people in office. Dan Patrick is not working for us. So what do you do?????? You don’t vote for Dan Patrick and you make sure his replacement is like minded as you IS. Will vote to make recreational weed legal. It’s as simple as that. If you wanted weed legalized you first should have voted against Dan Patrick and anyone else who thinks like Dan Patrick. End of discussion. He should have been not voted for 8 years ago and it would have already been legal here..

  57. Wade smith on January 2, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Why is mental health drs at Austin out patient clinic discriminating veterans with ptsd from subscribing the legal using cannabis under medical reasons per order signed into law by governor Greg Abbott

  58. Wade smith on January 2, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Big pharma is buying out the drs is why-legalization is not enforced in Texas through va. so they can push pills to veterans. for them as in opioids they know that are harmful to their patients but can’t back something to cure a lot of medical issues in over half Americans today in this country that have served this country putting their lives on the line so asshole law makers can dictate what is best for you or I ,

  59. Ray Glass on January 5, 2022 at 7:08 am

    I have given up hope that weed will ever be legalized in Texas as long as we are under Republican rule. Just look at the abortion laws in Texas, we have a bunch of republican men politicians telling us how to run our lives. The only way weed laws will change is if we have a democratic governor. Texas sucks coming from a person who has lived here for over 40 years.

  60. Dawg Hersey on January 6, 2022 at 8:29 am

    Dan Patrick is more a problem then cannabus will ever be he is into Dan not fellow texans and he truly thinks he is a texas dictator when he is actually only a dick!

  61. Abe on January 11, 2022 at 11:21 am

    As a tourist I ONLY go to states where it’s now legal. No trips spending my tourist $ in Texas, Utah or Idaho.

  62. Michael on January 12, 2022 at 1:40 pm

    I’m a Tx Veteran, spent my childhood in one trauma after another and then threw myself into combat search and rescue. Cannabis allows me forget, sleep and be around others. I have developed a severe allergy to people. Being identified as a cannabis user allows the VA to ignore any plea that I have. I hope that one day the world is kinder to cannabis users…

  63. sunny Courtney on January 17, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    I’m sorry folks but this country has became unjust if you can’t see the freedom and rights that made us americans have been picked and taken away we have nun texas will not cut loose .they make more revenue from hard drugs and human trafficking they can afford to hold out.
