Medical cannabis pick-up available for eligible patients
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Patients can now pick up medical marijuana right here in Hub City.
The list of qualifying conditions was expanded by the Texas Legislature through House Bill 1535 last year. The bill expanded the state’s official, legal medical cannabis program: the Compassionate Use Program (CUP). You can learn about the program here.
Now all cancer patients and people who diagnosed with PTSD can have their prescription delivered to their homes or pick up is available twice a month at a designated location near Quaker.
Texas Original Compassionate Cultivation CEO Morris Denton said you could obtain a cannabis prescription online.
“You click on the button that says ‘get a prescription here,’ you’ll fill out a form, we will put you in touch with one of the doctors that are already qualified in the program that can see you the same day and virtually figure out if you qualify. If you do qualify, they’ll enter you into the program, and then you’re off and running,” Denton said.
Since the expansion took effect in September of last year, TXOG said they had seen a steady increase of 1500 to 2000 new patients every month.
