Texas veterans to lobby for medical marijuana
Veterans will converge on the state capitol later this month to lobby Texas lawmakers for medical marijuana.
Those who served in the armed forces and their families are encouraged to attend and speak with legislators about supporting medical cannabis legislation, including HB 3785 and SB 1839.
The bills would establish a medical program in Texas for those who get a recommendation from their doctor for marijuana, and would cover conditions including pain and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
“Everyday, Texas veterans suffer from debilitating conditions like PTSD and chronic severe pain, but antiquated laws stand between these patients and the medicine that best fits their needs” states Tristan Tucker, a Navy Veteran and one of the organizers of the event.
The event will take place on Wednesday, April 22 at 9:00 a.m. at the John H. Reagan Building, Room 110 (located at SW Corner of Congress and 15th Street).
