Is Texas About to Get Legit with Delta-8 THC? – Over 130 Med Mary Jane Licenses on the Table!

Is Texas About to Get Legit with Delta-8 THC? - Over 130 Med Mary Jane Licenses on the Table!Yo, what’s poppin’ Texas? Let me break it down for y’all. The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) announced that they’re accepting applications for new licenses under the Compassionate Use Program (CUP) for dispensaries. So, if you’re tryna get in on that medical cannabis game, now’s your chance.

Here’s the deal: if you already applied for a cannabis retail license, you can reapply using the updated application form. And guess what? The DPS is waiving the application fees for those who are reapplying. That’s what I call a sweet deal, my friends.

Now, the DPS hasn’t given us the exact number of licenses they’re gonna issue. But they did say that they’ll only be giving out enough licenses to make sure that people all over the state can get their hands on some low-THC cannabis. Gotta keep it fair and square, you know?

But wait, there’s more! The state Legislature is pushing to expand the list of qualifying conditions for medical cannabis. House Bill 1805 is trying to include any condition that causes chronic pain and would normally require an opioid prescription. Can I get a “hell yeah” for that? We don’t need those opioids messing with people’s lives when we got some good ol’ Mary Jane to help us out.

This bill also wants to bump up the THC limit for cannabis oil from 1% to 10 milligrams. That’s right, we’re talking about Delta-8 THC products here. Texas has been missing out on all the fun because we don’t have a recreational or medical cannabis program. But this bill is gonna change all that. It’s time to bring some legit cannabis products into the Lone Star State.

Speaking of changing things up, H.B. 218 is trying to decriminalize small amounts of cannabis possession. And guess what? It got unanimous approval from the Texas House of Representatives. Looks like more and more people are starting to see the light when it comes to cannabis.

Let’s not forget about the Compassionate Use Act that was passed back in 2015. This act allows doctors to prescribe low-THC cannabis to patients with qualifying conditions. And let me tell you, the list of qualifying conditions has been growing. We started with epilepsy, but now we got seizure disorder, multiple sclerosis, spasticity, autism, cancer, and even post-traumatic stress disorder. It’s about time we give people some options when it comes to their healthcare.

But here’s the thing: we still got a long way to go. Texas may have registered around 45,000 patients in the Compassionate Use Program, but Florida is killing it with around 700,000 enrolled participants. We gotta step up our game, Texas.

And let’s not forget about our military veterans. They’ve been through some tough stuff, and medical marijuana has been a lifesaver for some of them. During a public hearing, veterans shared their stories of how cannabis helped them with trauma and pain. We can’t let them down.

Alright, so here’s the deal with the applications for medical cannabis dispensary licenses. The DPS got over 130 applications from people who wanna set up shop in Texas. That’s a lot of love for Mary Jane right there. But hold up, there’s no deadline for approving these applications. And the DPS ain’t talkin’ about expanding the program anytime soon. So we’re just gonna have to wait and see what happens.

In the meantime, let’s keep pushin’ for progress. We need more qualifying conditions, higher THC limits, and easier access to medical cannabis. It’s time for Texas to step into the modern age and give our people the medicine they need.

So keep fightin’ the good fight, my friends. We’re gettin’ closer to a future where cannabis is treated like any other medicine. And that’s a future worth fighting for.

Stay lit, Texas.
