Although no permanent dispensing facilities exist in Georgetown City, prescription pickup sites set up by Texas-approved dispensaries in the city must comply with certain state laws.
First, no dispensing site may sell recreational cannabis to buyers or allow persons without valid medical cannabis prescriptions issued under the Compassionate Use Program to pick up orders. Dispensing sites must use the Texas Compassionate Use Registry to monitor purchases to ensure that low-THC cannabis buyers do not exceed the stated amounts on their prescriptions.
Recreational cannabis is illegal in Georgetown. Per state law, there are stringent punishments for persons caught possessing, cultivating, selling, consuming, or distributing cannabis for recreational purposes.
Residents are only allowed to purchase and use medicinal cannabis if they have valid proof that they suffer from one or more qualifying medical conditions listed by the Compassionate Use Program (CUP). The CUP was established in Texas pursuant to the Compassionate Use Act. The valid proof of participation in the CUP in Texas is an active medical marijuana prescription issued by a qualified Texas-licensed physician. This prescription is available in the CURT (Compassionate Use Registry of Texas) and can be verified at the dispensaries licensed to operate in Texas. There is no minimum age requirement in order to receive a medical marijuana prescription in the state of Texas; however, patients under the age of 18 may be required to have the consent of their legal guardians or parents.
Note that the Compassionate Use Program only offers a restricted form of cannabis to patients. Unlike patients in other states with medical cannabis programs, Georgetown patients participating in the CUP can only access products containing no more than 1% THC. Persons caught using cannabis products with higher concentration levels of THC face serious consequences. Patients can find low-THC products in the form of gummies, tinctures, and lozenges from licensed retailers. It is prohibited to grow cannabis at home or smoke low-THC cannabis.
Medical marijuana cards are not issued to participants of the Compassionate Use Program. Hence, Georgetown patients cannot get medical marijuana cards. The CUP does not require patients to provide medical marijuana cards to purchase medical marijuana. Georgetown patients only need valid low-THC cannabis prescriptions in the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas to purchase medical cannabis.
To be issued a valid prescription, you must be a permanent resident of Georgetown and living with one of the following conditions:
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
An incurable neurodegenerative disease
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Your medical condition must be certified by a CUP-approved healthcare provider. You can use a healthcare provider search tool on the Texas Department of Public Safety website to find CUP-approved physicians in Georgetown. Upon verifying your medical condition and determining that the benefits of low-THC cannabis use outweigh the risk, the physician will add a prescription for you in the CURT. No application fees are required to be enrolled in the CURT. With a prescription issued, you may visit a prescription pick-up site with a valid government-issued ID containing the last five digits of your Social Security Number, date of birth, and name to fill your prescription.
Medical cannabis use by CURT-registered patients is permitted on private property. Public cannabis use is illegal.
Georgetown does not have any permanent dispensaries where you can purchase cannabis in-store. However, you can still buy low-THC cannabis online from approved dispensing organizations in Texas and have it delivered to your address.
