Are patients who take prescription medications for pain, seizures, depression and anxiety, or a number of other ailments not allowed to take their medications with them when they travel state to state? Of course they are! So why are patients who take physician prescribed/recommended medical marijuana not allowed to?
One word, reciprocity, or rather the lack there of.
Why does this matter?
When searching Google, it was as found that approximately 29 states have medical marijuana laws, yet of those, only 7 have reciprocal relationships. Really?! It’s true each state has their own laws, but if a patient has been prescribed/recommended for medical marijuana by their physician, then he or she should be allowed to legally and freely travel between those states with their medication. Truth is, only through reciprocity provisions for those states with medical marijuana laws will patients be able to realize this.
