Texas Medical Marijuana Patients Caught in Catch-22
Texas’ medical marijuana patients are still finding themselves in a classic Catch-22 situation. The Lone Star State is the only one in the union where its medical marijuana law requires that doctors “prescribe” MMJ rather than “recommend” it—like the rest of the country.
This is obviously a problem because doctors are not permitted by law to prescribe a Schedule I substance, which sadly marijuana is, according to the DEA’s absurd system of classification.
But it’s never been easy in Texas.
When Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed the Compassionate Use Act in 2015, the law was meant to allow neurologists and epileptologists (epilepsy experts) to prescribe low-THC, cannabis-based medicine to people with untreatable and intractable epilepsy.
