By Cassius MethylCBD oil was recently legalized in the state of Texas. However, the legalization comes with a long list of arbitrary requirements for use of the oil (while THC remains forbidden).One requirement for use is that a patient must prove they had no success with at least two pharmaceutical drugs prior to being treated with CBD oil.

The senate debated on the matter for five hours before voting on the proposal.
“We need to position ourselves to take advantage of the significant economic opportunities offered by this emerging industry,” says Justice Minister Mark Golding, who [...]

“When we first received the plant, we were very skeptical about its relation to cannabis,” says researcher Christopher Pool. “ [...]
In 2012, Colorado and Washington state legalized the recreational use of marijuana, much to the dismay of anti-pot advocates. They frequently alleged that it would make it easier for children to acquire, that more people would use it, that there would be more people driving while high, and that it would be an all around bad deal for these states.
In Colorado, it’s safe to say that the doomsayers were 100% wrong. Sales of recreational marijuana continue to rise with more than $34 million wo [...]
