@Sl1 Found the following online. Had the same issue when I went to see my sister in VA. Only state that reciprocates RI lic is ME. I'm not a smoker as I'm a wimp so I do edibles or vape. My flower ends up infused in butter, coconut oil, or honey etc. With the coconut oil I have made capsules to use when I travel - Less odor and in a perscription bottle stored in my make-up bag. I also will get concentrated cannabis oil from my dispensary and make hard candies that travel well. I can get you the recipe if you want it.
Kinda sucks that you could bring all your opioids or get them refilled wherever but not this medicine. They make you feel like a criminal instead. Good luck and safe travels~ AB
If you are a patient registered in another state, your recommendation is not valid in Florida. Several states do offer reciprocity.
If you have a pharmaceutical prescription and need a refill while on vacation, most people don't think twice. They stop by the nearest nationwide pharmacy and likely walk out with their medicine. What is legal in your state is legal in another state. That is the law of reciprocity.
While 23 states provide allowances for patients using cannabis don't look for the law of reciprocity to apply to cannabis. With a few exceptions, patients cannot travel to another state and be protected from prosecution.
Even among states that allow for legal use of cannabis different rules apply. Arizona, Montana and Michigan have reciprocity in their medical marijuana laws. Maine allows out-of-state patients to use this medicine for 30 days. Rhode Island respects out-of-state recommendations for any "debilitating medical condition" and Vermont allows recommendations from neighboring states for Vermont residents only.States offer reciprocity for most things - what is legal in one state is recognized as legal in the next state - it helps citizens avoid legal trouble when crossing state lines.
As states adopted medical marijuana rules, reciprocity was not a top priority. Since 2010 patients have demanded reciprocity be included in the legislation. Arizona, Delaware, Maine, Nevada, and New Hampshire offer some sort of protection for patients with conditions that qualify under their state laws. In most cases, the state still requires that the patient apply for and obtain a state registration card before they can purchase cannabis from a licensed dispensary. New Hampshire and Arizona will recognize the patients ID card as legal protection from prosecution but patients must bring their own medicine into the state in violation of Federal laws.
