by Jax

In last night’s debate, Governor Abbott clarified his current position regarding his stance on marijuana legalization.

This is a step for the Governor and we hope to work towards making this change possible.

Governor Abbott directly addressed medical cannabis and the current Texas Compassionate Use Program saying, “Parents with children who have epilepsy approached me a couple sessions ago about the possibility of what’s called CBD oil for their children. I was moved by what they had to say, I agree with them, and I am the governor who signed the legalization of CBD oil. More recently, I’ve had discussions with veterans as well as parents of autistic children and others make it a very strong compelling case about legalization of medical marijuana.”
