DRIVEN BY THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY

RECIPROCITY LAWS

Nevada, Washington D.C., Michigan, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Arizona and Maine allow some level of reciprocity for out-of-state registered medical marijuana users.  Hawaii, Arkansas, Ohio and Maryland also have reciprocity language included in their upcoming regulated programs.

Not all reciprocity is created equal...

  • In Michigan, Nevada and New Hampshire, medical cannabis users can lawfully purchase pot with their out-of-state cards with no restrictions.
  • Rhode Island recognizes cards from other jurisdictions, but only for conditions that are approved for medical marijuana use in the Ocean State itself.
  • Arizona and Maine allow out-of-state card holders to possess marijuana but not purchase it at state-authorized dispensaries.
