The Compassionate Use Program (CUP) strictly regulates who is legally authorized to buy and use medical cannabis in Missouri City and statewide in Texas. The CUP was created by SB 339, passed by the Texas legislature in June 2015. The CUP requires patients to be diagnosed with one or more medical conditions approved under the CUA to be included in the state patient registry.
Under the CUP, a medical marijuana prescription issued by a physician with a valid Texas license and entered in the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT) is accepted as proof of CUP participation. Even though there is no legal age restriction for getting a medical marijuana prescription in Missouri City, patients under the age of 18 may need the approval of their parents or legal guardians.
The Compassionate Use Program only provides patients access to specific cannabis products. Patients in Missouri City taking part in the CUP are allowed to possess and use only cannabis products with no more than 1% THC, which is lower than the typical THC concentrations in medical cannabis products in other states. The CUP prohibits medical cannabis cultivation by CURT-registered patients.
Missouri City patients participating in the Texas Compassionate Use Program are not issued or required to obtain medical marijuana cards. The State of Texas runs a limited medical cannabis program that only requires participants to have valid medical cannabis prescriptions issued by healthcare practitioners approved under the Compassionate Use Program. The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) maintains a list on its website of physicians certified to issue medical cannabis prescriptions.
To obtain a medical cannabis prescription under the CUP, you must be registered with the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT). To be registered in the CURT, you must be a permanent resident of Missouri City or another Texas location and be approved to use low-THC cannabis to treat a qualifying medical condition. Per the Texas CUA, the following are the conditions approved to be treated with low-THC cannabis:
An incurable neurodegenerative disease
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
When you visit a physician to get approval for low-THC cannabis use, the physician will evaluate your condition and medical history and decide if medical cannabis is a better option than conventional medicine for treating your symptoms. If medical cannabis use is beneficial, the physician will add your data to the CURT and issue a medical cannabis prescription. This prescription can be accessed by dispensing organizations when you purchase medical cannabis.
If you are not yet 18, the physician may request the presence and approval of your parent or legal guardian before adding your data to the CURT. Information about your caregiver (parent or legal guardian) may also be added to the CURT. This is useful in situations when your caregiver will pick up your order at a prescription pick-up site.
Upon having medical cannabis prescriptions added to their CURT profiles, Missouri City patients may order low-THC cannabis products online and have them delivered to their addresses. At the time of delivery or pick-up, they will need to show government-issued IDs with the last five digits of their Social Security numbers, name, and date of birth. Persons having their caregivers pick up their orders must also notify them to have their valid government-issued IDs ready.
