This made news because Texas has some of the stringent rules against pot – despite it having medical marijuana laws on the books. The books however state that “medical marijuana” – that is only accessible by a handful of qualifying conditions – cannot exceed a THC threshold of 0.5. Compare this to “Hemp” which legally is cannabis with less than 0.3% THC in it. Other states, do not hold limits on the THC of medical marijuana which can reach anywhere between 10% all the way to 30%+. THC – the demon baby of cannabis, according to Texas – is thus strictly regulated.
