Americans for Safe Access (ASA), a national cannabis patients’s rights organization, has released a special guide to help cannabis patients safely travel from state to state.
‘ The Medical Cannabis Patient’s Guide for U.S. Travel ‘ was published a the end of August by ASA and appears for free on their website, safeaccessnow.org
There are currently 47 states and four territories with some form of a medical cannabis law, but the rights and privileges they extend to medical cannabis patients vary among them.
ASA Travel Guide, Introduction
The Guide breaks down the possession limits and usage restrictions for the states with regulated medical cannabis programs. Many states allow some use of cannabis but do not provide a means of legally obtaining cannabis medicines.
As always, consult an attorney for advice of a personal nature. It is still illegal to carry cannabis (not hemp) across state lines, even if the originating and the destination states both allow medicinal cannabis.
