Just time for the holidays, Americans For Safe Access (ASA) has published it’s medical cannabis patient’s guide for U.S. travel. Available online, the flyer provides a handy review of the laws regarding medical cannabis across the country as a service to help patients legally acquire marijuana along their journey.
The Medical Cannabis Patient’s Guide for U.S. Travel is a convenient resource to help you navigate the crazy quilted patchwork of laws governing medical marijuana use in the United States.
Following the 2020 general election, there are currently 48 states and four territories with some form of a medical cannabis access, as well as 13 states and the District of Columbia that now permit adult-use, but the rights and privileges they extend to medical cannabis patients vary among them. As a result, patients who travel for personal or employment reasons can find themselves unsure as to how to access medical cannabis in an unfamiliar place.
Given the importance of patients knowing the laws regarding medical cannabis in the states and jurisdictions they visit, ASA created The Medical Cannabis Patient’s Guide for U.S. Travel to help patients safely and legally learn how to acquire cannabis while travelling.
