neighbors, rotary club, church... anybody and everybody you know. We want to empower you and your communities to spread the word about legalizing medical marijuana and hemp CBD for patients in Texas!

Cannabis has been off-limits to doctors and researchers in the US for the past 80 years, but recently scientists have discovered its anti-cancer properties.

From Executive Producer, Ricki Lake and Director, Abby Epstein comes Weed the People - an award-

winning documentary that

follows five families who are looking for alternatives to treat their children's cancer. Armed with only these laboratory studies, desperate parents take their children's survival into their own hands and obtain cannabis oil from underground sources to save their children. At the heart of the film is the question: If weed is truly saving lives, why doesn't the government want people to access it?

 

The impact of a film about children, health equity and the booming green economy could not be more timely.

Join us to hear from our panels of patients, scientists, and industry leaders.

FACT: Of any U.S. state, Texas has the highest percentage rate of marijuana arrests. Some Texas districts & local police departments are getting more aggressive, prosecuting federally-legal Hemp CBD merchants and consumers.

 

With the Federal Farm Bill now passed, how archaic have Texas’s cannabis (Hemp & MJ) laws become?

 

FACT: We have a natural compound (cannabis oil extract) being shipped in everything from shampoo to lip stick across the United States, that can get you charged with a felony for even possessing as a consumer in Texas.

 

Does HB1325 remedy this glaring federal conflict?

 

FACT: Weed the People shines a light on the serious and effective work being done to treat children’s cancer using cannabis extracts. By law, because these medications utilize THC, the caregivers and all the parents highlighted in this film would be charged with felonies and the children referred to CPS, in Texas today.

How does HB1365 establish a functional medical marijuana program that allows this vulnerable population to have access to natural healthcare?
