FORT WORTH (CBS 11) — A Texas mom is fighting to give parents of autistic children the right to utilize medical marijuana as a treatment for their kids. It’s just one of the issues we’re hearing from marijuana advocates in town for the Southwest Cannabis Conference.
Thalia Michelle isn’t just trying to change Texas law; she’s helping mothers across the country try to change laws in their states with the hope of giving parents more options to treat their children.
Advocates at the Southwest Cannabis Conference are quick to point out the difference between THC, which causes the high from marijuana, and the compound CBD.
