Courtney Barnes to Talk Hemp at Texas Marijuana Policy Conference

Aug 28, 2019

VS Attorney Courtney Barnes is traveling to Austin, Texas this week for the Texas Marijuana Policy Conference, hosted by Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy. Courtney will participate in the panel "Hemp in Texas: Issues in Implementation" on Friday, August 30, 2019, at 3:15 pm. 

From the organizers:

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.
