The Texas Marijuana Policy Conference was outstanding!

On August 11, hundreds of Texans gathered in Austin for the first-ever Texas Marijuana Policy Conference.

Chairman Joe Moody

Conference speakers discussed state and federal marijuana policy from personal and professional perspectives. We heard from state and federal lawmakers, professional athletes, policy experts, and advocates, including veterans, patients, and caregivers. Here’s the full list of speakers from the event.

We are less than three months away from the legislative pre-filing period, which is when we expect to see marijuana related bills introduced. We’re excited about our opportunities for reform during the coming legislative session. Thank you for your support!

We want to make a big impact; please consider contributing toward our work!
All funds will be dedicated to advocacy efforts at the Texas Capitol.

Here are some of the highlights:

Roadmap to Reform, Texas’ Political Landscape: John Baucum, Christy Zartler, Dr. Joshua Blank, and Jax Finkel (not pictured)
Cannabis, Faith, and Family: Jason Rink, Amy Fawell, Pastor Rick Sitton, Rev. Alexander Sharp
Congressman Dana Roharbacher: “States, not the federal government, should make decisions regarding marijuana.”
Professional Athletes, Chronic Pain, and Cannabis: Dr. Sue Sisley, Mike James, Dr. Robert Marks, Solomon Page
Medical Cannabis Research: Nishi Whiteley, Dr. Elias Jackson, Dr. David Auer, Dr. Bryon Adinoff
