It's a step in the right direction. It may be baby steps, but they're moving forward. 

The Austin American-Statesman reports that Cansortium Texas received the first ever medical marijuana license here in Texas this past Friday. The company will be allowed to grow, process and sell medical marijuana to patients with a rare form of epilepsy. Looks like another two companies are in the process of receiving licenses as well.

Forty total companies have tried to get licenses. The other two that are close to receiving licenses are Compassionate Cultivation and Surterra Texas.The companies face strict state regulations that restrict their customer base and how they formulate the products.

Glad to see the state of Texas is starting to see the benefits of medical marijuana for people with certain conditions.
