Possession of medical marijuana is now legal in some states, under some circumstances. Each state that allows possession of marijuana for medicinal use has its own laws spelling out how the marijuana may be grown, transported and distributed.
Texas has no such laws. Texas does not recognize the right of individuals to cultivate or possess marijuana for medicinal use, even if the person is carrying marijuana obtained legally according to the laws of his or her home state.
