HB 164 update -- Texas medical marijuana bill dead for this session

It is with heavy heart that I must inform you that Friday, May 8th, was the last day we could have had a hearing in the Public Health Committee. I was on the phone with Representitive Kolkhorst's office on Thursday and Friday requesting a hearing. I also know that Representative Naishtat worked hard as the vice chair of the committee to get us a hearing. After seeming reasonable and willing to work with us on a possible hearing, Kolkhorst dug in at the last minute and would not budge. Enough of the poopy talk. The question is: Where do we go from here?
