Nearly Half of Texas House Signs on to Medical Marijuana Bill
Yes, another story about the state of Texas moving towards the acceptance of marijuana. The rest of the country is moving in that direction, so we should be too. Now, if you want to call marijuana a gateway drug and use that as an argument against it even being legal for medical purposes, stop reading now and call a doctor. You need a Cranialrectalectomy..
But I digress. House Bill 2107 now has a whole bunch of sponsors. Seventy three of 150 legislators in the Texas House of Representative's actually. And it's a mix of both Democrats and Republicans.
So what is House Bill 2107? Well, according to Texas Legislature Online:
Relating to authorizing the possession, use, cultivation, distribution, transportation, and delivery of medical cannabis for medical use by qualifying patients with certain debilitating medical conditions and the licensing of dispensing organizations and testing facilities; authorizing fees.
To summarize, it would make medical marijuana legal in the state of Texas.
