In 2015, the Texas Compassionate Use Act was passed. It legalized oils containing CBD, a non-euphoric component of marijuana known to treat epilepsy and other chronic medical conditions.

The state will regulate and distribute the oils to patients whose symptoms have not responded to federally approved medication.
