Reciprocity, the legal process allowing a state-issued license to be accepted in other states, is relatively common among medical大麻states.

但似乎并不是那么许多人实际上不是互惠,特别是在俄克拉荷马州等高酒吧国家。

About half a dozen medical cannabis states recognize medical cards from other states, according to theMarijuana Policy Project, including Arkansas, Hawaii, Missouri, Rhode Island, Arizona and Oklahoma.New Mexicois the latest state to add reciprocity, having recently passed it into law, and Washington DC also accepts medical licenses from legal states.

But it’s hard to find a patient who’s actually taken advantage of the program, which seems to be underused, possibly because of unwieldy regulations in some states.

“I know of some people using it, but it’s hard to see how widespread it is,” said Karen O’Keefe, director of state policy use for the Marijuana Policy Project. She said that some states like Hawaii accept out-of-state licenses without additional paperwork. But in a state like Oklahoma, the reciprocity process requires additional bureaucracy.

俄克拉荷马州的障碍

俄克拉荷马州是医疗大麻国家名册的最新条目之一,当然是最热情的人之一。当俄克拉荷马州九月完成了第一年的合法化,state had approved more超过7,300个医疗大麻商业许可证,包括1,848个省级,1,173个处理器和4,287名种植者。betway必威官方网站该州于9月批准了超过178,000名患者。

“俄克拉荷betway必威官方网站马州的增长部分是由于市场进入低障碍和与其他国家相比的监管障碍相比的高消费者需求是较高的。”

俄克拉荷马医疗大麻当局允许医疗大麻卡的州外持有人获得temporary medical cards允许他们购买,使用,拥有和生长大麻。betway必威官方网站但无法达到权威,以提供许多患者实际完成的患者。

据俄克拉荷马州诺曼州诺马拉州诺尔尔诺尔尔(Normal)诺尔尔,医疗大麻患者的数量现在更接近222,000,在人口不到400万。她说,互惠一直是该州计划的一部分,因为它去年才能才能进行。她表示,互惠在联邦限制不允许在其合法的国家之间运输医疗大麻的系统进行了意义。但她才意识到一个实际试图获得临时俄克拉荷马州许可证的一个州患者。

“I know of one person who tried it but she was gone before the weekend was out so she didn’t get to use it,” said Sapp. She said that temporary licenses have to be applied for a month in advance and cost $100, so it doesn’t do much good for a weekend visitor.

Waleed Nasir, co-owner of the Herbal Cure dispensary in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, said he was not aware of anyone trying to use an out-of-state license in his year-and-a-half of doing business.

“这是一个漫长的程序,”Waleed说,其公司正在扩展,最近加入第二个药房。“它没有太多。”

他说,在非法市场竞争的最新例子与挣扎,更高的法律大麻行业的最新举例中,禁毒可能正在利用“一个大型空投”。

在某些方面,大麻互惠的系统类似于枪支倡导者一直在尝试的系统,并失败,通过国会进行国会,其中一些国家的隐藏携带许可证将被接受。但这落入障碍,因为一些州设置了更高的栏。正如纽约和马萨诸塞州对隐藏携带许可证的更严格的限制就像佛罗里达或德克萨斯州一样,一些国家不允许与其他州的医疗大麻相同的合格条件。加利福尼亚州或新泽西州的父母担心的父母留在俄克拉荷马州或夏威夷的药物中的居民不会接受,这不接受焦虑作为合格条件。

威廉·莱茵河博士,Cannrx首席执行官,科技公司专注于淘汰的递送系统的治疗效果的一致性,表示,互惠是实现医疗大麻国家对国家标准的具有挑战性的。

“这不是一件容易的事情,互惠性,但这是一个积极的,”他说。“它将与其他国家的各国协调一致,允许更好的法规。我认为该行业正在变成那个空间,但监管机构都在赶上公众投票的东西。“

  1. I personally live in Missouri and have applied for the Oklahoma out of state medical marijuana card 2x now (11/2019 & 2/2020) which takes days for approval and then extra time for the physical card to be mailed out. I live about 30 mins from dispensaries over OK state line. I use medical marijuana personally for fibromyalgia and chronic pain. My son, who is almost 6 with severe autism and related issues including ADHD, gets tinctures with a mix of CBD/THC to help with anxiety, help with focus during therapy sessions, generally just help him feel more in control of his body. I hope that this will soon be available nationwide as it is proven to be effective in countless ways.
