AUSTIN -- There are renewed efforts from lawmakers to bring medical marijuana to Texas.

State Representative Elliott Naishtat has introduced a bill to give patients using medical marijuana an affirmative defense in court.

House Bill 594 would protect patients if they are arrested on charges of marijuana possession.

Lawmakers have introduced similar measures in previous legislative sessions, but patients and advocates are still waiting for a hearing on the bill.
