Market Overview:

Otherwise fairly libertarian Texas has a very strict medical cannabis program — the Compassionate Use Program (CUP). Medicine can contain no more than 0.5% THC by weight, and must be swallowed and not smoked.

Certain counties and cities within Texas, however, have in effect decriminalized — or at least lightened penalties surrounding — possessing or consuming certain amounts of cannabis.

Austin, Dallas, and Harris County (home to Houston), are among the municipalities that have done so.
