Cannabis is illegal in Killeen, as it is in all Texas jurisdictions. However, under the state cannabis decriminalization statute, Killeen residents can possess up to 4 ounces and not have such offenses included on their criminal records. Possession of less than four ounces of cannabis is considered a petty misdemeanor under Proposition A, as approved by the Killeen voters.

However, if the possession offense is related to cannabis concentrates, the penalties are more severe. A felony charge will arise from possessing less than one gram of cannabis concentrate.
Medical cannabis activities and operations in the City of Killeen are governed by the Texas Compassionate Use Act (CUA). Killeen residents diagnosed with certain medical conditions are eligible to get low-THC cannabis as a prescription according to Chapter 169 of the Texas Occupations Code. Low-THC cannabis refers to Cannabis sativa L. as well as any part of the plant or any product, preparation, combination, resin, derivative, or oil obtained from the plant that contains up to 1% by weight of tetrahydrocannabinol.
The Texas Compassionate Use Program, also known as TCUP, was first targeted at patients diagnosed with intractable epilepsy. The program required that cannabis products available to patients have a CBD-to-THC ratio of at least 20-to-1 and no more than 0.5% of the psychoactive compound known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Since the CUP's inception, the list of conditions that are eligible for treatment with medical marijuana in Texas has been expanded to include conditions such as autism, terminal cancer, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Patients diagnosed with one of the disorders specified in Section 169.003 of the Texas Occupations Code are now qualified to participate in the TCUP. In the City of Killeen, it is unlawful for TCUP enrollees to smoke low-THC cannabis products. However, they can consume low-THC cannabis in the form of tinctures, edibles, and topicals.
In order to buy and possess low-THC cannabis in the city, you need to get a certification from a physician certifying that you have at least one of the qualifying conditions established under the TCUP. After completing the certification process, the healthcare provider will submit your information to the Texas Compassionate Use Registry (CURT). Illegal medical cannabis acts include consuming medical cannabis in public places, on federally owned land or buildings, or at dispensing locations.
The State of Texas does not issue medical marijuana cards under its Compassionate Use Program, only cannabis certifications or prescriptions. The CUP allows qualified physicians in Texas to prescribe low-THC cannabis products to certain qualifying patients. Such patients only need a valid medical cannabis prescription to legally purchase low-THC cannabis from an approved dispensing organization in Texas.
However, to obtain a medical cannabis prescription, you must be enrolled in the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT). To be eligible to enroll in the CURT, you must get a low-THC use certification from an approved healthcare practitioner authorized to issue such attestations under the TCUP. You must be a permanent resident of the City of Killeen or Texas and have one of the approved conditions. Under the TCUP, the following are the approved conditions for which low-THC cannabis certifications may be issued:
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
An incurable neurodegenerative disorder
Certifying physicians are granted access to the CURT, which allows them to complete the registration for patients qualified to use low-THC cannabis. After completing your registration, the physician will issue you with a prescription which you must take to the dispensary before you may take receipt of online cannabis orders to pick up your order at a mobile dispensary. No fees are required to complete registrations in the CURT. However, your certifying physician may charge fees for consultation. Note that while the CURT has no age restrictions for enrollment, Killeen residents under 18 are likely to need the assistance of their parents or legal guardians to complete registrations in the CURT and obtain low-THC cannabis prescriptions.
