No. There are no brick-and-mortar stores selling medical cannabis in the city. While League City residents qualified to use low-THC cannabis can purchase such products online, no physical dispensaries in the city are selling medical cannabis.
League City residents enrolled in the Texas Compassionate Use Program can order low-THC cannabis online from any of Texas-approved dispensing organizations. However, recreational cannabis cannot be purchased online as there are no online adult-use weed dispensaries in the city.
You cannot visit a dispensary in League City. None of Texas’ approved dispensaries has a permanent physical location in the city. However, state law permits authorized dispensaries to operate mobile dispensaries or temporary prescription pick-up sites in League City. When such operations are undertaken in the city, League City residents enrolled in the Compassionate Use Registry may visit the locations to pick up their orders. A valid government-issued photo ID with your name, date of birth, and medical cannabis prescription will be required before you may be allowed to pick up your order.
The League City Code does not contain regulations relating to the establishment and operations of marijuana dispensaries. The city defers to the state laws on such matters. Per state law, only dispensaries that have obtained licenses from the Texas Department of Public Safety may set up dispensing sites in League City. Such sites may not be located within 1,000 feet of a school or daycare center. They must ensure that low-THC cannabis is only sold to persons with valid registrations in the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas.
They must also verify that a prescription in the CURT system is for the patient before dispensing low-THC cannabis. It is required for the dispensary to keep track of the amount and form of low-THC cannabis dispensed in the CURT system as well. Additionally, a weed dispensary must confirm that another dispensary has not filled a patient's prescription before dispensing low-THC cannabis to the patient.
In League City, cannabis is considered a controlled drug under the Texas Controlled Substances Act, so possession and use of cannabis for recreation are illegal. However, the possession of small amounts of marijuana has been decriminalized under Chapter 12.22 of the Texas Penal Code. The Texas Code defines small amounts of cannabis as quantities not exceeding four ounces. In League City, possession of marijuana (above 0.3% THC by weight) not prescribed by a qualified physician for a qualifying ailment is still illegal, despite the decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana.
Under the state penal code, the possession of less than four ounces of marijuana in League City is a Class C misdemeanor. Possession of 2-4 ounces of marijuana is a Class B misdemeanor, while the possession of less than 2 ounces is a Class A misdemeanor. The sentence for marijuana possession depends on the quantity of marijuana found in the offender's possession, the purpose of possession (whether intended for sale, possession, or cultivation), and the offender's criminal history. League City residents still face DUI charges if found impaired from cannabis use while operating a boat, bicycle, or car.
Only patients with medical conditions approved under the Texas Compassionate Use Program (TCUP) may possess and use low-THC cannabis. Chapter 169 of the state Occupation Code defines low-THC cannabis as cannabis plant or its derivatives or parts containing no higher than 1% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) by weight. The TCUP was established pursuant to the Texas Compassionate Use Act approved in 2015.
In order to be certified under the TCUP to access medical cannabis, a patient must be a permanent resident of Texas, have one of the approved conditions, and possess a valid medical cannabis prescription issued by a TCUP-approved physician.
It is also illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana or grow cannabis at home in League City. Out-of-state patients cannot access medical cannabis in the city.
You cannot get a medical marijuana card in League City. This is because the State of Texas does not issue medical marijuana cards to participants in its Compassionate Use Program. The Texas Compassionate Use Program (TCUP) initiative was founded pursuant to the Compassionate Use Act to allow qualified Texans access to low-THC cannabis. The requirement for accessing medical marijuana under the TCUP is a medical cannabis prescription issued by a TCUP-approved physician.
To qualify for a medical cannabis prescription, you must be enrolled in the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT). CURT requires that you live in League City or have a permanent Texas address and have one of the approved medical conditions. A TCUP-approved physician must verify that you have one of the following conditions:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
Incurable Neurodegenerative diseases
If you are unsure whether your physician is approved under the TCUP, use the DPS list of approved physicians to verify your healthcare provider’s approval or find a physician approved to verify your condition. After determining that you have a qualifying condition, the healthcare practitioner will also ascertain that the benefits of medical cannabis use offset potential risks.
You will get a medical cannabis prescription after your physician adds your information to the CURT. The prescription will be issued by the certifying physician. You may then order low cannabis online after getting your prescription.
No law in the League City Code specifies the locations where low-THC cannabis can or cannot be consumed. However, it is recommended to consume low-THC cannabis in private homes, as long as it is not visible to the public. Cannabis consumption for recreational use is illegal to consume in private or public.
You cannot purchase cannabis at a physical dispensary in the city. Recreational cannabis is illegal and not sold in any Texas jurisdiction, while low-THC cannabis is sold online but not by dispensaries located in the city. Texas-approved cannabis dispensaries are allowed to deliver low-THC cannabis purchases to buyers across all Texas jurisdictions. Therefore, to purchase medical cannabis in the city, you must order from any of the three approved dispensaries. Before you can successfully complete your purchase, you must be enrolled in the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas and have a valid medical cannabis prescription. You can have your order delivered to your doorstep or visit a temporary medical cannabis prescription pick-up site to pick up your order. In addition, you will be required to show a government-issued ID with your name and age to pick up your order.
Recreational cannabis is not sold in League City or anywhere in Texas. However, the prices of medical cannabis (low-THC) cannabis products sold online to League City residents vary depending on the strain or dispensary. Typically, an ounce of high-quality strain in the city sells for $320.
Cannabis strains sold to medical cannabis patients in League City only contain small concentration levels of THC- the psychoactive component in cannabis. Unlike other jurisdictions where popular strains have THC concentrations of up to 30%, state law only permits medical cannabis products sold to Texans to have no more than 1% THC. Hence, common strains sold online to League City residents, such as Bubba Kush, Ringo's Gift, ACDC, and Critical Kush, do not have high THC concentration levels.
Cannabis smoking in public is illegal in League City. While low-THC cannabis consumption is legal in the city, smokable forms of such products are not allowed. Section 54-63 of the City Code also bans smoking within 25 feet of and in the seating areas and covered concourses of all outdoor sports stadia and bleachers and grandstands used by spectators at public events. Smoking is also not allowed within 25 feet of outside entrances, exits, windows, and ventilation systems of enclosed areas where smoking is prohibited. Smoking cannabis in public locations in the city may result in criminal charges.
Under the Texas medical marijuana program, the possession limits for low-THC products are determined by the patients’ physicians and are specified in their low-THC cannabis prescriptions. For non-medical cannabis consumers, possession of up to 56.7 grams or 2 ounces of marijuana is considered a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum of 180 days in jail and a fine of $2,000 for a first offense.
No. It is a federal offense to ship cannabis within League City, as marijuana is illegal under federal law. It is illegal to transport cannabis across state lines, and mail delivery service providers such as the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) do not risk shipping cannabis due to their compliance with federal laws.
You cannot order recreational cannabis online in the city. Also, there are no medical marijuana dispensaries established in the city from which you may purchase medical cannabis.

There are no permanent brick-and-mortar stores where you can purchase cannabis in the city. However, all three approved dispensaries in Texas (Goodblend, Texas Original, and Fluent) sell low-THC cannabis online to League City residents.
Texas requires all its approved dispensaries to scan the IDs of cannabis buyers to ensure only persons with valid medical cannabis prescriptions can buy low-THC cannabis from their establishments.
None of Texas' three approved dispensaries have a permanent dispensing location in League City. League City residents may, however, purchase low-THC cannabis online from these businesses. It is also possible to have mobile cannabis bus tours offering delivery sites from any of the approved dispensaries.
Cannabis dispensaries in League City do not accept credit card payments due to marijuana's status at the federal level. Note that cannabis is federally classified as a prohibited substance that may not be sold. Credit card companies follow federal laws and therefore do not permit the use of their services for marijuana purchases. It is common for marijuana businesses to prefer cash payments.
There is no law in Texas limiting the number of cannabis dispensaries that a patient can visit in one day. However, with purchases monitored through the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas, you will not be able to buy more low-THC cannabis products than is stated on your medical cannabis prescription.
No. Since health insurance businesses operate under federal laws, they are unable to support cannabis transactions as cannabis is still deemed illegal pursuant to the United States Constitution. Hence, you cannot use health insurance to complete payment for cannabis purchases.
Texas dispensaries are required to track low-THC cannabis sales made to buyers. While there are no permanent dispensaries in League City, potential mobile dispensaries and temporary prescription pick-up facilities will track how much weed buyers purchase.
