Can I Visit Dispensaries In Other States With My Arkansas Medical Marijuana Card?

When it comes to dispensaries, accepting out-of-state medical marijuana cards is usually up to the discretion of the dispensary. Therefore, if you plan to visit a dispensary in another state, it would in best practice to call the facility ahead of time to confirm that you will be able to make a purchase. Each dispensary has its own purchase and possession limits for out-of-state patients.

Arizona and New Hampshire are two of the states that will only allow patients to possess marijuana for medicinal purposes and not purchase from dispensaries.

It is also important to remember that although you are approved to purchase and possess medical marijuana in a designated state, it is still illegal to cross state borders with marijuana products, even if medical marijuana is legal in both states.
