One of Texas’ first cannabis dispensaries opens today, but it looks nothing like the ones in states where recreational marijuana is legal. At Compassionate Cultivation’s dispensary near Austin, customers won’t find marijuana to smoke or pot brownies and gummy bears to eat. One product is for sale: a specific kind of cannabis oil. Only Texans with intractable epilepsy can purchase it. With its front desk, couches and chairs and piles of children’s books and magazines, the dispensary resembles a clinic or the waiting room of a doctor’s office, not a retail store. Registered patients and their family members can go there to buy cannabis oil or request a delivery by a company employee. But each patient must meet stringent state requirements, such as getting the approval of two physicians who are registered under the state’s Compassionate Use program.
