MEDICAL MARIJUANA up for legalization in TEXAS today.
House Bill 2107, authored with bipartisan support by Rep. Eddie Lucio, III (D), Rep. Jason Isaac (R), Rep. James White (R), and Rep. Ron Simmons (R) would make the Compassionate Use Program more inclusive for patients with debilitating medical conditions. Seriously ill Texans deserve safe and legal access to medical cannabis if their doctors think they could benefit. The bill will be considered by the Public Health Committee on Tuesday, May 2.
