AUSTIN — A small town in North Texas could see Texas’ first full-scale medical cannabis business.
Out where the roads go down to two lanes and where time itself seems to slow down, there’s a place that — on its surface — seems like countless others.
“Gunter’s a small, rural farm community located about 40 minutes north of Dallas,” Mayor Tim Slattery describes it. “Our city proper is conservative, probably 90 percent.”
There, on the outskirts of town, half buried in weeds, Patrick Moran found what he was looking for. The Amarillo native and McKinney resident aims to make this hundred year-old gin ground zero for a brand new Texas industry: Medicine made from cannabis.
