If you have your medical marijuana card, you may be wondering if you can use it when visiting other states.
For patients with chronic health issues, the idea of traveling without having access to medical marijuana might be worrisome.
The good news is, several states have agreements to allow access for Florida medical marijuana card carriers (though Florida itself does not allow the use of out-of-state cards yet, aside from seasonal resident applicants).
Let’s take a look and see which states allow Florida MMJ patients to use their medical cards.
While this article should not be considered legal advice, and laws are frequently changing, there are currently 33 states that honor other state’s medical marijuana cards. A Florida MMJ cardholder can possess medical marijuana in the following states without prosecution if following the state’s laws
- New Hampshire
- Rhode Island
- Washington D.C
However, you cannot carry any medical marijuana products across state lines, and it is up to individual dispensaries whether they will sell to you. Though not every dispensary will necessarily sell to you, you can’t be prosecuted for possessing medical marijuana if you are a legal card carrier.
In some states, recreational cannabis is already legal and you won’t have to present your MMJ card unless you’re under 21 years old.
You should always check the guidelines of the state you’re traveling to before arriving, and make sure you’re complying with the laws.
