Department of Public Safety Licenses Medical Marijuana Producer Despite Limits in State Program

Department of Public Safety Licenses Medical Marijuana Producer Despite Limits in State Program

Licensing will allow production to begin, but few patients can qualify for program and less than 1% of physicians in state can register to prescribe medical marijuana to their patients

AUSTIN, Texas - September 5, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) The Texas Department of Public Safety granted one of three planned licenses to a medical marijuana producer on Friday, which will allow the program created by the Texas Compassionate Use Act to get underway after more than two years of planning.

The Texas Compassionate Use Program currently only permits patients suffering from intractable epilepsy to access specific types of medical marijuana that are effective for some patients with seizure disorders. Unlike every functioning medical marijuana program, it also requires doctors to "prescribe" medical marijuana, which is a violation of federal law and could put participating doctors at risk of losing their DEA registration or even facing criminal charges.
