Texas Medical Marijuana Program Overview

Type of program: Medical only

The Texas Compassionate Use Act went into effect in 2015, allowing individuals suffering from intractable epilepsy access to low-THC cannabis oil. 

A few years later in 2019, the Act was expanded to include other debilitating conditions. Some of these conditions include terminal cancer, autism, seizure disorders, MS, ALS, Alzheimer’s, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and Parkinson’s disease.

At present, under current Texas cannabis laws, the only products available to these patients are cannabis-oil, lozenges, lotions, tinctures, and inhalers, each containing 0.5 percent THC or less and a minimum of 10 percent CBD. 

Five years after the program was implemented patients still experience barriers and red tape when applying for a Compassionate Use license. Industry experts and medical marijuana advocates claim that the current program is largely inaccessible to the ailing demographic it was initially designed to serve.

Until recently fewer than 20 doctors across the state were officially registered with the Texas Department of Public Safety to legally prescribe medical marijuana. Moreover, at the start of 2021 there were only 3,500 Texans registered in the medical marijuana program when, in fact, more than two million people are legally eligible.

The fledgling medical marijuana program in Texas still has many hurdles to jump. Texas is among the most prohibitive of all states – near the bottom of the list as far as accessibility goes, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Patients should keep in mind that the difference between Texas medical marijuana and hemp is a mere 0.2 percent THC at most. Hemp-derived CBD products can be purchase without a medical marijuana card.

Texas Marijuana Laws

Marijuana-related DUI laws in Texas

There are no facilities or clubs allowing the smoking or consumption of marijuana products in the state of Texas.

At present there is no language available in the Compassionate Use Act to describe the act of smoking marijuana while driving, however, the situation would most likely fall under Texas Penal Code Ann. § 49.04 (Vernon 2009) rules and penalties.

It is recommended that you NOT consume medical marijuana products before or while driving a vehicle, as the punishments are steep for such violations.

Transporting cannabis in Texas

When transporting medical marijuana products, registrants must always carry their medical marijuana ID. This includes the transporting of the product to and from a dispensary. When transporting the product in a car, it must always be in a child-proof container, out of arm’s reach by the driver.

Pending Changes to Texas Marijuana Laws

2021 could see some dramatic changes to Texas medical marijuana laws and many individuals supporting legalization are feeling optimistic.

Marijuana Moment recently interviewed Heather Fazio, an advocate for medical marijuana legalization. Ms. Fazio stated via email that her organization was  “pleased to see a variety of cannabis-related bills introduced so early in the pre-filing period. Democratic and Republican lawmakers are making cannabis a priority,” she said, “which is a good sign for advocates as we prepare for the upcoming legislative session.” 

She went on to say “I’m not sure that this is going to be the session that it happens, but I know that this session’s definitely going to be talked about,” Fazio said. “If nothing else, it jumpstarts the conversation about repealing prohibition, so we can have a conversation about how prohibition has affected the lives of people.”

Early in 2021, with a new legislative session pending, Texas lawmakers were hoping to implement new measures into the Compassionate Use Program. The reforms to the program are to include loosening of restrictions and the expanding of eligibility.

At least seven bills have been filed by legislators with the intention of not only expanding the program’s eligibility but also eradicating the THC cap in addition to lowering business fees.

For the time being, Texas has been dubbed a  medical CBD state by the advocate group NORML. Ironically, even non-intoxicating CBD is being scrutinized as the lines remain blurred in regard to the standardization of the product. CBD providers and retailers still struggle to find the proper categorization for the substance. It is still unclear as to whether it’s a medicine, food additive, or dietary supplement.

Texas hemp and CBD laws

CBD is the non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis. CBD produced from hemp plants (as opposed to marijuana) was made legal in the U.S. at the end of 2018. In June 2019, Texas Governor passed House Bill 1325 which authorized the production, manufacture, and retail sale of hemp and hemp-derived products including CBD. 

Texas passed a law in the summer of 2020 clearly stating that hemp-derived CBD products are legal in the state.

Patients can buy CBD online and have it delivered to their door. Medical marijuana patients can also purchase CBD products in legal dispensaries across the state of Texas. 

There is no limit to the amount of hemp CBD an individual can possess.

In spite of CBD-hemp’s legal status in Texas, it is still illegal to smoke hemp flower in public.
