In 2015, the 84th Texas Legislative Session enacted the Texas Compassionate Use Act (Senate Bill 339) requiring the Department of Public Safety create a secure registry of physicians treating intractable epilepsy patients with low-THC cannabis.

In 2019, the 86th Texas Legislature expanded the program to include additional medical conditions and physician specialties for which low-THC cannabis may be prescribed. The Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT) system has undergone the necessary modifications to allow additional physician specialty registrations and support patient prescriptions for these additional conditions (House Bill 3703).
