Yep, you read that right.  The tides in Texas may be starting to turn...

They'll probably turn as slow as molasses but, hey, a step forward is a step forward! reports that:

The Austin American-Statesman reports that Cansortium Texas, which is a part of Florida-based Cansortium Holdings, received a license Friday. The company will be allowed to grow, process and sell medical marijuana for patients with a rare form of epilepsy. -

Two other companies may also soon receive licensing in Texas. KVIA added that these companies face strict state licensing regulations. This isn't exactly a new thing mind you. According to, the ground work for this was first set two years ago.

Licenses are being issued under the Texas Compassionate Use Act, which Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law in 2015. The companies were selected from more than 40 applicants in May and have undergone a series of facility inspections. -
