Hello cannabis consumer,
If you’ve been paying much attention, you know that HB 164 is a very exciting new bill that will provide much needed legal protection for doctors who recommend and patients in need of medical cannabis in Texas.
Similar bills have been introduced in years past, with no success. This has been primarily because the bills have never made it out of committee. Perhaps the bill’s luck will “change” this year.
Committees have been assigned for the 81st Texas Legislature, and HB-164 has been assigned to the Public Health Committee. Cannabis consuming Texans need to ensure that this bill gets the attention it needs by contacting the members of this committee to discuss HB-164.
Below are the members of the Public Health Committee:
|Chair:||Rep. Lois W. Kolkhorst|
|Vice Chair:||Rep. Elliott Naishtat|
|Members:||Rep. Garnet Coleman|
|Rep. John Davis|
|Rep. Veronica Gonzales|
|Rep. Chuck Hopson|
|Rep. Susan King|
|Rep. Jodie Laubenberg|
|Rep. Jim McReynolds|
|Rep. Vicki Truitt|
|Rep. John Zerwas|
The names above are links. Please take a moment to contact one or more of these individuals.
