AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Some Texas legislators would like to see more allowable uses for medical marijuana.

The Austin American-Statesman (http://atxne.ws/1UVXxm7 ) reports expansion could affect the current law that lets patients with a rare form of epilepsy be legally treated with cannabidiol, or CBD.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is expected to start issuing permits to CBD businesses in mid-2017.

Sen. José Menéndez of San Antonio failed to get a broad medical marijuana bill approved in 2015. Menéndez says he’d support any expansion of the current law for therapeutic uses.

Rep. Jason Isaac of Dripping Springs says he’s hopeful that legislators who convene in January will continue expanding cannabis-related medical treatments.

Gov. Greg Abbott, when he signed the current law, reaffirmed keeping marijuana illegal in Texas but allowing CBD use in narrow circumstances.
