Texas: Medical cannabis advances with committee approval!

HB 2107, Texas’ medical cannabis bill, advances with an historic committee vote of 7-2. Contact your representative in support of the bill!

On Tuesday night, the Public Health committee considered public testimony in support of HB 2107 until nearly 2 a.m. Patients, including military veterans, caregivers, and medical professionals shared their stories and experiences with an attentive and thoughtful committee. The next day, the legislation gained significant traction, jumping from five to over 70 representatives signing on as either joint or co-authors.

Today, thanks to Chairman Price, the Public Health Committee voted to advance HB 2107 with an historic vote of 7-2! Please email your representative now to express your support of this important legislation.

Now, the bill will be considered by the Calendars Committee, which will decide if it gets a vote before the entire House of Representatives!

If passed into law, this bill will make the Compassionate Use Program more inclusive for patients with debilitating medical conditions. With bipartisan support, we are seeing unprecedented support for medical cannabis in the Texas House.

Contact your representative to express your support for safe and legal patient access to medical cannabis. Then, help us spread the word by sharing this email.
