Texans for Medical Marijuana
Tuesday, 05 June 2007

Texans for Medical Marijuana was a statewide grassroots organization that began in January of 2004 with a mission of changing Texas law to protect medical marijuana patients, who possessed a doctor’s recommendation, from arrest and incarceration. The organization ceased operations in May 2007.  

Several doctors and individuals endorsed the following statement of principle:

Licensed medical doctors should not be punished for recommending the medical use of marijuana to seriously ill people, and seriously ill people should not be subject to criminal sanctions for using marijuana, if the patient’s physician has told the patient that such use is likely to be beneficial.

For current information and ways to be involved in state and federal marijuana policy work please visit Marijuana Policy Project at www.mpp.org. MPP pursues its work along  two parallel tracks — making marijuana medically available to patients in need and taxing and regulating marijuana for general adult use.
