Texas House OKs second bill to expand medical marijuana qualifying conditions

The Texas House advanced a second bill to expand the list of medical conditions that can be treated with medical marijuana under the state’s limited MMJ program.

The measure would allow patients with multiple sclerosis, persistent muscle spasms and all forms of epilepsy to use MMJ, a move that would give dispensary operators a wider pool of patients to serve, according to The Dallas Morning News.

The approval comes a day after the House approved an even more expansive bill (HB 1365) that would increase the number of qualifying conditions under the program, which caps THC content at 0.5% THC.

Both bills now head to the state Senate.

    Why even bother with Texas if they’re going to be that hostile to CBD! The Farm Bill made hemp legal, you can get it from a lot of other states that want your business, online and delivered no less! I said no to my states CBD producers, and yes to Oregon hemp a not to long ago!
