The State of Texas has strict regulations for dispensaries, and any temporary dispensary in Round Rock must follow these rules. Dispensaries in Texas are required to restrict sales to customers with valid medical cannabis prescriptions from licensed healthcare professionals in the state. They must sell no more than the quantities of medical cannabis specified in the patients’ prescriptions and also prohibit the consumption of cannabis on the premises. All dispensary sales must be reported to the Texas Compassionate Use Registry.
With the Texas Controlled Substances Act listing cannabis as a controlled drug, cannabis possession and use are illegal in Round Rock. However, the possession of small quantities 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 more than four ounces. In Texas, possession of marijuana (above 0.3% THC by weight) not prescribed by a qualified physician for a qualifying ailment remains illegal, notwithstanding decriminalization.
Under the Texas Penal Code, Round Rock residents caught in possession of less than four ounces of marijuana may be prosecuted with 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 often depends on the following conditions:
The quantity of marijuana found in the offender’s possession
The intent behind possessing the amount of marijuana found in the offender’s possession (that is, whether the cannabis was intended for sale, possession, or cultivation)
Whether the individual has been charged with a crime in the past
Cannabis-impaired driving remains illegal in Round Rock, notwithstanding Texas’ cannabis decriminalization statute. Round Rock residents caught driving under the influence of cannabis in Midland face DUI charges.
Round Rock’s medical marijuana laws are based on Texas' SB 339, also known as the Compassionate Use Act (CUA). The state legislature passed SB 339 in 2015, which allowed Round Rock patients with intractable epilepsy to access medical marijuana. In 2019, the state expanded access to medical marijuana under the Compassionate Use Program (CUP) by allowing Texans with terminal cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease to use marijuana for the treatment of these conditions. By 2021, more medical conditions were added to the approved list, such as spasticity, autism, and multiple sclerosis.
To obtain medicinal marijuana under the CUP, a medical marijuana certification from a Texas-licensed physician is required. The physician must conclude that the potential benefits of low-THC cannabis outweigh the risks.
Patients in Round Rock who wish to use medicinal marijuana are required to be included in the Texas Compassionate Use Registry (CURT). The CURT allows certified healthcare practitioners to register medicinal marijuana patients and prescribe medical marijuana to them. While low-dose THC use is permitted in the form of edibles, smoking THC products remains illegal. Low-THC cannabis products in Texas are cannabis products containing no more than 1% THC by weight." The CUP does not permit the home cultivation of cannabis and prohibits medical cannabis use in public places. There are no statutes in SB 339 prohibiting Round Rock employers from taking disciplinary actions against employees using medical cannabis.

Your certified physician will give you a prescription for low-THC cannabis and include it in the CURT after entering your personal and medical information into the registry.
