FREE Baker Institute Event – Is Texas Ready for Medical Marijuana? at James A. Baker III Hall, Rice University 6100 Main Street Houston, Texas 77005 United States Kelly International Conference Facility
Nov 12 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

It appears likely that during its 2015 session the Texas legislature will consider one or more bills that would permit legal use of cannabis (marijuana) in the treatment of approved medical conditions. For many years, a majority of Texans have supported some form of legal access to medical marijuana. Currently, 23 states and the District of Columbia have medical marijuana programs, but they differ widely on such matters as the range of conditions qualifying for treatment, the ease of obtaining permits for use, and the right to grow one’s own medical marijuana. This discussion of the therapeutic promise and legislative possibility for medical marijuana in Texas will feature an experienced legal grower and dispensary operator from New Mexico, a physician, a Baker Institute drug policy expert, a veteran Texas legislator, and current user and non-user advocates and activists.

There is no charge for this event. RSVP by Friday, Nov. 7.
