Allowing Doctors to make the medical decisions.
Physicians should be authorized to determine whether their patients could benefit from medical cannabis and the optimal products and dosage to meet each patient’s medical needs.
Removing unnecessary restrictions on effective medical products.
Lifting or increasing the state’s arbitrary cap on THC would allow for a broader spectrum of products and ensure the program is actually helping the patients it was intended to help.
Licensing additional dispensaries and cultivators
around the state to ensure all Texans who qualify for the TCUP have safe, legal, and reliable access to regulated, high-quality medical cannabis products.
Authorizing independent, third-party cannabis testing
by certified labs to protect consumers and hold businesses accountable. Independent labs cannot currently test medicine dispensed under the TCUP.
Establishing patient protections
to eliminate the threats of arrest, prosecution, and other penalties, such as loss of parental rights. Patients should not be punished for their use of a medicine that is legal under state law.
