So you are a legal medical cannabis patient. Your life has started to improve and maybe you don’t take as many pharmaceuticals anymore or maybe you don’t need to take any now. Your mobility has gotten better and you can once again travel around but there are now limits on your travel.
You can only travel within your own state where your medical recommendation originates in. Otherwise you can’t bring your medicine with you across state lines even if the state next to you has medical laws there is no guarantee that state will recognize an out of state medical cannabis recommendation that does not originate from their state. Plus going over state lines with cannabis is a felony.
What does that mean for the person who tries to stay within the law? A few things: If traveling you don’t bring medicine with you and therefore might suffer from your medical condition or travel only to the growing number of recreation cannabis states. Otherwise if this does not sound appealing you are a prisoner of your state unable to leave the boarders without suffering from your medical condition or forced to break the law.
Personally I support the various recreation cannabis initiatives because that mean there will be more options for medical cannabis users to be able to travel around without fear of legal recourse and it is more likely that more individual states with legalize recreation cannabis before there is interstate cooperation or federal programs for medical cannabis use.
