Healthcare Marijuana might be coming to TEXAS!!!
State Senator Jose Menendez (D-San Antonio) announced that on Tuesday (12/13/2016) he will be filing a Bill that would permit people today with debilitating and chronic situations to get a prescription for cannabis from a medical professional. This is actually good news for people today who endure from Cancer, PTSD, and Chronic Discomfort just to name a couple of.
Dwight Clark, the director of legislation for Senator Menendez, mentioned that cannabis will be prescribed beneath strict controls. It will also make on the Texas Compassionate Use Act that was passed final year.
Do not get also excited although. The Bill faces an uphill challenge. Very first, the make up of the Texas State Congress is nonetheless pretty conservative. There is hope that some of the much more libertarian leaning Republicans will see the financial added benefits of legalization and recognize that the government has no organization telling men and women what they can do with their personal lives.
Sadly Gov. Greg Abbott has previously stated that he will veto any Healthcare Marijuana law that is passed.
