Hey there,

Unfortunately, Texas’ Compassionate Use Act that recently legalized MMJ won’t go into effect until September 1, 2017. That being said, Texas is still going to make it exceptionally difficult for individuals to even receive the doctor recommendation necessary to be granted a MMJ card.

Here’s some more info about what will be legal come Sept. 1

“When the bill goes into effect, the Texas Department of Public Safety will oversee the program.

The prescribed dosage would be a low-THC marijuana that has 10 percent or more cannabidiol (CBD) and not more than 0.5 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that gives users the “high” associated with the drug. CBD is also a marijuana extract with purported medical benefits, but does not give users a “high” feeling.

All authorized patients have to be diagnosed with intractable epilepsy, be under the care of an authorized doctor, have tried two FDA-approved drugs found to be ineffective, and be a permanent resident of Texas.”

Given this info, I wouldn’t be too hopeful about legally being able to bring your medicine with you. Hopefully one day Texas wises up, but until then, good luck and be careful!
