I agree; awfully optimistic. Texas regs are horribly restrictive: One prescribable condition (intractable epilepsy?); <.3% THC oils only; public physician registry (Dr Shaming) and tough CE requirements. The legislature decreed there would be at least 3 dispensaries state-wide and that DPS would regulate them and adopt provisions for future licensing; DPS has approved only 3 dispensaries (even though CBD stores are popping up everywhere) and has yet to lay out a licensing program. Entrusting the program to DPS, a partisan for the prison-industrial complex, ensures the CUA will remain a sad joke. We'll have Indian Casinos before we have reasonable medical cannabis regs (and rec? um, yeah). Best to push for decriminalization and for OK to adopt rec rules in 2020. Its a much shorter drive to Durant or Lawton.

I think this article is a little more optimistic than the current reality of the program in Texas. After having worked for a Texas dispensary and worked very closely with DPS during dispensary inspections. I can assure you they aren’t too keen on even letting the current dispensaries expand. You can raise all the investment money you want to, but at the end of the day it won’t change how DPS views the CUP. If DPS won’t change their perspective, we all have a problem and a long road ahead.
