HB 2107 Advances from House Public Health Committee with a BiPartisan Vote of 7-2!
Late in the evening Tuesday, May 2nd, the House Public Health Committee held a hearing for HB 2107 which would make the Compassionate Use Program more inclusive for patients with debilitating medical conditions. Many patients stayed late into the evening to provide powerful and emotional testimony.
Veterans demanded access for service related disabilities. Doctors spoke to the efficacy and safety profile of cannabis. After a powerful hearing with targeted testimony, the authors for the bill jumped from 5 to 76! This is historic and unprecedented in Texas. Read this joint letter from the authors.
