Monday night, the Texas House gave initial passage to a bill to legalize broader use of medical marijuana.
House Bill 1365, by state Representative Eddie Lucio, D-Brownsville, would expand the state’s extremely narrow rules to allow doctors to prescribe low-THC cannabis to patients with cancer, autism, post-traumatic stress disorder, severe pain and nausea, muscular dystrophy, Alzheimer’s and a host of other conditions. T
he bipartisan passage, on a 121-23 vote, is noteworthy in a Legislature that has moved significantly slower than other states on marijuana reform.
