The Texas Coalition for Compassionate Care is well named, as the tenets of basic respect and compassion for suffering patients and veterans are the guiding forces behind all the decisions we make and the actions we take on their behalf. Among the core values that guide our process are:
- A resolve to always place people first and work to address patient needs
- The need for safe access to medical marijuana while protecting our communities
- The importance of legal protections for doctors, patients and caregivers
- The value of community education regarding medical cannabis and patient care
Our organization was formed to educate the public and lawmakers and to increase awareness of the facts related to the benefits of marijuana for certain patients and veterans.
The Texas Coalition for Compassionate Care seeks to be an integral part of creating laws, programs, and support services for patients who would both qualify and benefit from the medical use of cannabis. We additionally strive to become a source of information and education through our website, publications, speakers and network of supporting organizations. Specifically, we seek to create a framework for patients' legal protections to use medical marijuana when recommended by a medical professional. Additionally we work to secure patients and caretakers rights to possess and manufacture medical marijuana when their doctors deem that it's benefits outweigh the risks for the patient. The coalition also works to facilitate the creation of a secure distribution system for medical marijuana in the state of Texas for safe and legal access for qualified Texas patients and Veterans. This system must be secure and separate from the black market for the safety of patients and the community at large.
