TEXAS– The Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Sid Miller, says he is in favor of expanding medical marijuana use in the state of Texas.
Last week, Miller toured Compassionate Cultivation in Austin, one of the only three locations licensed to grow marijuana for medicinal use in Texas. Afterward, Miller said he is in favor of expanding the limited use of cannabis for all medical conditions.
“I would certainly expand medical marijuana. If it’ll help somebody, I’m for it,” he told media. “Whatever it is. I mean, a toothache, I don’t care. If it’s a cure, if it [alleviates] pain, we should be able to use that.”Texas AG Commissioner Sid Miller on medicinal marijuana use.
