Why Does Texas Have Medical Marijuana Prescriptions?

As cannabis is federally illegal, medical marijuana doctors in other states “recommend” or “certify” cannabis for their patients. Prescription is not technically legal.

Texas, being the Lone Star State, does things a little differently. Doctors’ medical marijuana recommendations/certificates are called “prescriptions”, and patients don’t actually receive any certificates, recommendations or MMJ cards. Instead, the patient is registered onto the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT) during the physician’s evaluation if they qualify.

Why this is, we here at Leafwell cannot say for sure. However, as cannabis prescriptions are technically illegal, it would be reasonable to assume this is a) due to the low amount of THC in medical marijuana products in Texas, and b) Texas trying to set a precedent of sorts.

Can I apply for my Medical Marijuana Card online in Texas?

How does the online evaluation process work for getting a Medical Marijuana certificate Letter/Medical Certificate in Texas?

You’ll then be asked to complete a brief questionnaire of personal and health information and to either take or upload a photograph of identification (Leafwell is required by law to verify your identity). You will need a smartphone, computer, or tablet with a reliable internet connection and a working camera to be seen by a Leafwell provider.

2. Next, you will be taken to the virtual waiting room where you’ll be connected Leafwell provider for a video chat (i.e., a virtual doctor’s visit). (You will receive a text message to your cell phone when the provider is ready to see you.) During the video chat, the provider will assess your health situation to determine if you qualify for a medical marijuana certification.

3. If you are approved for a medical-marijuana card, you’ll be sent a copy of your certificate letter via email. You can then use this to register to the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT).
