New DC Medical Marijuana reciprocity for out of state patients

New DC Medical Marijuana reciprocity for out of state patients

I really love progress.  DC has finally made progress for out of state patients in DC requiring the usage of marijuana. The DC Council has approved Cnc. Yvette Alexander’s bill, B21-0210, legislation allowing patients with valid medical marijuana cards from other states to access medicinal cannabis in D.C.

The ordinance also expands D.C’s medical marijuana program in several other ways:

  • Increases the number of marijuana plants permitted to be grown at D.C. cultivation centers from 500 to 1,000.
  • Allows medical marijuana cultivation centers to expand into adjacent real property with community notice, and to provide for the relocation and change in ownership of dispensaries, cultivation centers, and testing laboratories.
  • It would amend the District of Columbia Health Occupations Revision Act of 1985 to allow for the authorization of additional health professionals to recommend medical marijuana based on the recommendations of the Boards of Medicine and Nursing.

If you live in one of the states below that has a medical marijuana program and you have a card, you will soon be able to visit our DC Dispensaries!
