These are called “reciprocal” states because they accept out-of-state medical marijuana cards
When I was in my 20s and not doing too well financially, I prayed that one afternoon I would possess the money and time to travel beyond my town and state. I wanted to see the mountain ranges out west that I saw in films and TV shows. As I slowly paid off my debt, the dream of one afternoon traveling around the country was starting to seem possible, even if it wasn’t likely. Unfortunately, this process took longer than I anticipated. I was eventually granted paid leave for a two week getaway and I decided to fly out west. My neighbor from school let myself and others stay in his current home in the spare entryway while the people I was with and I were in my stay and the people I was with and I ended up smoking a lot of cannabis and cigars while drinking whiskey on ice. He had a medical marijuana card and could get anything from the dispensary that the people I was with and I wanted, I just had to wait outside in the motorcar while he went inside to pay. All of us had a pungent batch of Blue Dream and some OG Kush hash rosin as well. It was such a fun experience that I prayed that someday I would have my own medical cannabis card. I suppose immensely fortunate and grateful that my state was the next one in line to pass a law legalizing medical marijuana. But one amazing side effect of getting a card in my house state was being able to use it in other states to purchase their medical marijuana while I’m there on getaway. These are called “reciprocal” states because they accept out-of-state medical marijuana cards. You can shop on the medical menu instead of the recreational menu. At the cannabis dispensary, often you will find better products on the medical menu and you won’t be charged taxes.
