HOUSTON – An article that was circulated online Thursday had many people believing marijuana had been legalized in Texas, but that was just a pipe dream.
Many people wrote and called KPRC 2 asking about the article, which stated that the Lone Star State had legalized cannabis. The article appeared to have originated from a website aimed at pranking friends with fake news stories.
Recreational marijuana is still illegal for Texans, and there is only one lawful use for medical marijuana in the state — treating patients suffering from intractable epilepsy.
