    DC now allows MMJ cards from out of state

    The Council of the District of Columbia has approved legislation allowing patients with valid medical marijuana cards from other states to access medicinal cannabis in D.C. This represents another step toward effectively nullifying federal prohibition in practice.

    Introduced by Cnc. Yvette Alexander, B21-0210 or the Medical Marijuana Reciprocity Amendment Act of 2015 expands the District’s medical marijuana program by enabling patients undergoing a qualifying medical treatment or possessing a valid medical marijuana card from another jurisdiction to access medical marijuana in Washington 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.

    Several states have medical marijuana reciprocity, including Arizona, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.
