Legal Topics

The Texas Compassionate Use Act was enacted in 2015. This Act required the Texas Department of Public Safety to establish a secure registry of physicians who treated epilepsy. This was done to facilitate prescribing low-THC cannabis to patients with epilepsy for whom low-THC cannabis may be especially effective).

In 2019, the list of qualifying conditions for cannabis treatment expanded to include epilepsy, terminal cancer, MS, ALS, seizure disorders, and incurable neurological disorders. PTSD was added in 2021.

Other important Texas cannabis laws include:

  • Possession of up to two ounces is a misdemeanor that carries up to 180 days in prison, a $2,000 fine, and a driver’s license suspension (some municipalities may have more lenient penalties).
  • Selling or delivering seven grams of marijuana or less is a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $4,000.
  • Hashish and concentrates are not considered marijuana under Texas law. However, it’s still illegal to possess either.
  • Smoking medical marijuana is prohibited in Texas. One is only allowed to consume marijuana orally through products such as oils.

  • At least 18 years of age.
  • An eligible patient must be a permanent Texas resident.
