Change is Slow
While marijuana is still far away from being fully legalized everywhere, many states have allowed medical marijuana to be used for certain purposes. It has been proven to be a great asset for seriously ill patients, but it is crucial to understand exactly what medical marijuana laws entail.
Marijuana Law Update
Expansion of current medical marijuana laws in Texas might take place in the near future. It just depends on new assembly bills that the governor is willing to sign into law. Pay attention to ballot measures in upcoming elections to see what will happen.
Meanwhile, if you are caught with marijuana in Texas, you will not be able to tell the police you are using it medicinally unless you fall within the strict categories approved. Depending on the amount within your possession, you could be facing jail time of 180 days.
