The law surrounding the use and distribution of Medical Marijuana across the USA often creates confusion.
Many of our visitors have a Medical Marijuana card and buy and use legal marijuana within their legalized state. Occasionally these people want to travel by car to non legalized Medical Marijuana states and use their Marijuana to help treat their condition. Or at least possess Medical Marijuana whilst travelling over the states where Medical Marijuana is illegal.
You would naturally think that these people have the right to use their Medical Marijuana as it was bought in a legal Medical marijuana state. It would not be fair for them to suffer whilst travelling across the USA. On most car trips in the USA you need to travel over at least 1 non legalized Medical Marijuana state.
However Jamilla More from CrimialDefenseLawyer.com states that it is illegal to use or possess Medical Marijuana whilst travelling through non legalized Medical Marijuana states.
Hence the dilemma for people who use Medical Marijuana in legal Medical Marijuana states, who wish to travel within the USA. For example if you use Medical Marijuana in Montana and want to travel to Colorado, where Medical Marijuana is legal. The problem is you would need to cross over at least 1 non legalized Medical Marijuana state (Wyoming).
If the police catch you with Marijuana in Wyoming, you would be prosecuted and need to hire a lawyer. The map below illustrates the problem for legal Medical Marijuana users who wish to travel in the USA:
Would you run the risk travelling across non legalized states with Medical Marijuana, if Cannabis was vital for your well being?
