    Control of human beings, throwing them in cages for using plants out of the ground. INHUMANE crime against humanity. Get off your moral high ground, regulate and tax it. Stop this madness of prohibition.

    Texas politicians are unknowingly supporting racist laws. Marijuana prohibition is racist. Legalize it already

    $250.00 is steep for medical marijuana that’s not effective due to the low THC content that’s ineffective to assist with particular medical problems.

    A friend told me they use it for anxiety instead of benzodiazepines

  5. JJ Saint on May 2, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    Let 21 and older smoke marijuana!
    We Texas deserve it!

    I know CPS management in Texas treated marijuana use by a parent as a capitol offense and would harass parents and try to remove children just on its use no other factors.

    I know I worked there as investigator for 26 years and hundreds of man hours and money wasted on a very very minor issue.

    Texas Republican politicians claim to love veterans yet refuse to help us get the medicine we need legally.

  8. Anthony navarro on May 2, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    Abbott has to leave office so texans can have access to marijuana 😃

  9. Peyton Desoto on May 2, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    This is not medical marijuana there’s simply not enough thc to help those with epilepsy and ptsd

  10. Sherry Faith on May 2, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    Today Abbott signed the bill for medical marijuana for Cancer and PTSD.

    The only way cannabis reform comes to Texas is to vote Dan Patrick Lt Governor and Gregg Abbott Governor out of office. They are in the hip pocket of the sheriff’s association. Small country sheriffs enrich themselves with policing for profit. As a life long pro-life Republican I plan to for the first time vote against both Dan Partick and Gregg Abbott. They are turning a blind eye to police corruption throughout Texas. Now the every one has a camera in their hands the videos of police corruption and brutality is going to be front and center. It’s only a matter of time before Texans send Patrick and Abbott packing. If you’re pro-life you have to be appalled at what these men permit officers to get away with against anyone who’s unfortunate enough to cross their paths. Our war on drugs has turned many police officers into little less than land pirates.

  12. E. P. on May 2, 2022 at 10:10 pm

    If Patrick gets ahold of it,
    It be lost at the last minute as last time.
    Untill they are removed I have no faith in Texas politions,
    And remain still a Texas medical marijuana refugee in Oklahoma…

  13. Christina N. on May 2, 2022 at 10:12 pm

  15. Ganji Mayne on May 2, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    I just wish I had access to medicine.

  16. Panino Garza on May 2, 2022 at 10:16 pm

    Big pharma has a lot $$$$$ to lose

    Thank you for your service 🇺🇲

  18. Drew Mcniel on May 2, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    Texas vets and chronic pain patients deserves and need this Dan Patrick is depriving the community from legitimate effective medicine
    And it should be a crime that he’s doing so

  19. hugokatz on May 2, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    I’m eligible for the Texas so called compassionate care cannabis. It’s worse than worthless is is actually being run by Texas law enforcement. The DPS is the "compassionate organization" who keeps a list of anyone who needs this help. I’m a life long Republican who is willing to vote, on a state level, for Democrats to stop the evil of this horrible law. Dan Patrick is against legalization because small town sheriff’s departments make money robbing people along Texas roadways.

  20. Noah Alcoser on May 2, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    New Mexico here I come lol

  21. Technodrone313 on May 2, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    Just legalize it. It’s already as cheap as 125 an oz here in Michigan. Clean/safe no drug dealers.

  22. Andrew Lopez on May 2, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    End the prohibition already.

  23. Марио Феликс on May 2, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    I have been looking for a job.

  24. I’m just me Being me on May 2, 2022 at 10:24 pm


  25. Bryan Roschetzky on May 2, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    Stop dragging us behind , almost half the country is fully legalized! This is ridiculous

  26. yours truly on May 2, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    Just say when and where already 👍💚😸✌️

  27. Dysfunctional Veteran on May 2, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    until Patrick is out of office nothing will happen, he and Abbott MUST be removed first.

  28. Dogs are garbage aka Ashley on May 2, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    Oh goodness let’s hope. I need my medicine. I live in Arizona but I am on probation out of Texas. I cannot use my medicine here even tho I have my card because Texas has jurisdiction over me 😢
    I am suffering tremendously with pain and ptsd

  29. Rusty Shackleford on May 2, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    It’s all about the 💰

  30. Tree Beard on May 2, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    Legalize ranch!!!!!

  31. Steven Aguilar on May 2, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    So we gotta be f**** up in the head mentally ill or disabled to get we’d come on man

  32. MrGreatSite on May 2, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    So, did it become law for those conditions? Like the veteran shown, I too need it for those.

  33. BMWO Canada on May 2, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    End the prohibition. The legalization of cannabis is what people need.

  34. GypsyAdventures on May 2, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    It’s time to let some of us get pain relief and sleep.

  35. R E D R U M on May 2, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    I would rather have someone smoking a tree then be wrapped around one.

    Liberty for ALL! No Mens Rea! No Victim No crime! I do not consent to Big Government regulating My Human Rights!

  38. lily boone on May 2, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    This bill okays super weak cannabis. I’ve got epilepsy, I can’t get it in Texas now because of the type of epilepsy I have…it doesn’t stop seizures but it helps treat the extremely painful after effects. What they are trying to pass, won’t help a stubbed toe. Just fully legalize it already! We don’t need casinos stealing from poor people creating gambling addicts to create a false economy, we need things that actually help and are proven!

  39. Dogbertforpresident on May 2, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    Dan Patrick has got to go before we make headway on legalization.

  40. williams1camron on May 2, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    I hope people with MS will be able to use that
