Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy is hosting the second annual Texas Marijuana Policy Conference in Austin over Labor Day weekend.

Historic progress was made during this year's legislative session. Our state legalized hemp production and expanded access to the Compassionate Use Program, creating tremendous opportunity for both consumers and entrepreneurs. Sadly, though, most patients are still being left behind and lawmakers failed to reduce penalties for low-level marijuana possession. There is still a lot of work to do in Texas!

Our three-day conference will offer presentations from policy and industry leaders to help attendees better understand and navigate the new legal climate. We will also be focused on opportunities and our path forward to ensure more meaningful policy changes when the legislature meets again in 2021.

In addition to policy and advocacy discussions surrounding decriminalization, medical cannabis, and hemp, we'll feature a track of cannabis business sessions geared toward entrepreneurs, market watchdogs, and investors. Several of our sessions will qualify for continuing legal education (CLE) for attorneys (application pending).

Register now and share the event with your friends and colleagues who are interested in this exciting movement!
