The TEXAS House of Representatives passed two different bills to expand access to medical marijuana for qualifying patients.
The first bill, HB 3703, would amend the current list of qualifying medical conditions to include epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and spasticity, while the second piece of legislation, H.B. 1365 , would add Alzheimer’s, autism, Crohn’s disease, Huntington’s disease, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease, PTSD and several other conditions to the approved list. H.B. 1365 also DECRIMINALIZES a parent administering medical cannabis to “a child for whom the medical cannabis was recommended.”
