If you are on a vacation or work trip in the other state you might be worried, “Will I get my MMJ card there?” The concern is valid as not all accept out -of -state cards.
But do not get disappointed, there are a couple of States, which welcome non-resident medical marijuana users.
Let’s look at these states and get familiar with their laws.
The four states, New Hampshire, Arizona, Michigan and Rhode Island, allow visitors to legally buy and consume cannabis within the limit and restrict the use of concentrates, topical, edibles and tinctures.
New Hampshire: If you are a visitor at New Hampshire you can possess and consume cannabis. You can have 2 oz of MMJ but only for ten days.
Arizona: At Arizona, you can possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis for fourteen days, but you cannot buy it from the local state-licensed dispensaries. But, if you are a registered cannabis patient, you can freely enjoy the beauty of Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Wonders of the World without sequestering your cannabis intake.
Michigan: As a visitor at Michigan, you can possess 2.5 oz and use cannabis, but if you are driving with it, make sure you have kept the herb in a case in a locked trunk.
Rhode Island: A visiting patient can use and possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis, but cannot buy the same from dispensaries in the state.
The other two States have full reciprocity and allow visitors to buy cannabis at licensed dispensaries, especially patients who are suffering from a debilitating disease. But, do not forget to go through the laws before taking your flight.
Nevada: Nevada welcomes MMJ card holders to purchase, possess and even consume cannabis on their land. If you are a first time visitor, you would have to sign an affidavit which shows that you are a valid cannabis patient. If you are in the Silver State for more than 30 days, you can shop at the dispensary of your choice, which makes Nevada the perfect destination for cannabis users. However, you are allowed to possess 1 ounce of cannabis, 3.5 grams of cannabis concentrates and 2 and 1/2 ounce of cannabis flower.
Hawai: At Hawai, you can carry less than 4 ounces of MMJ for 15 days and 8 ounces for about 30 days, and get relief from pain, nausea or diseases like fibromyalgia, arthritis, and cancer.
