Get Started

Texas Compassionate Use Act

What you need to know

Enacted by the Texas Legislature in 2015, the Senate Bill 339 requires DPS to create a secure registry of neurologists who treat epilepsy for the purpose of recommending low-THC cannabis to patients who have been diagnosed with intractable epilepsy. In addition, the bill requires DPS to license at least three dispensing organizations to cultivate, process and dispense low-THC cannabis to prescribed patients.

Update on who can prescribe.

Whereas the original law gave only neurologists the authority to prescribe low-THC cannabis, new law allows any physician who is board certified and has experience with the condition he is treating to treat a patient under the Texas Compassionate Use Act.

There is also no longer a need for two doctors to approve treatment, one will be enough to write a prescription into the program.

Our platform not only highlights the registered physicians but facilitates the consultations. Patient access is our primary concern and with your help, we can ensure that patients get the advice they need on ALL of the available treatment options.

Any Board-Certified Specialist can prescribe.

Ongoing followups are required.

The consistent monitoring of patients taking advantage of treatment options created by the Compassionate Use Act is going to be critical to the program’s long-term success. Cautious legislators are concerned that the program will turn into the unregulated “wild west” that was once the medical marijuana program in California. We want to ensure that through regular monthly consults, this program is insulated from the increased scrutiny that lax patient monitoring would surely create.

Physician’s Right to Privacy.

While any physician who chooses to participate in the program and prescribe treatment to patients must register to CURT, they can choose to not have their name published unless permission is expressly granted by them.
