"It's important to understand that [cannabis] really is a medicine, a plant-based medicine," says a native Texan in a video promoting medical cannabis in the Lone Star State. The man suffered work-related injuries and turned to cannabis when his opioid medications produced negative side effects and started losing their efficacy.
"Medical freedom is important," he continues. "Every Texan should be able to choose remedies that work for him."
The Foundation for an Informed Texas, which produced the online video, also made a second video that encourages Texans to find out where their legislators stand on the issue. The organization is fighting to change minds about cannabis and push for medical cannabis statewide with reasonable access. And per recent statistics, the minds are definitely changing.
