WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT STATE LAWS ON MEDICAL MARIJUANA

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT STATE LAWS ON MEDICAL MARIJUANA

As of 2017, 29 states in the United States (U.S.) and the District of Columbia (D.C.) have passed laws legalizing the use of medical marijuana. These laws vary in scope and limitation. For example, some laws allow only terminally ill clients to possess the drug.

The earliest law allowing possession of medical marijuana was passed in the state of California in 1996.

Registration

Except for the states of California, Maine, and Washington, other states have legalized marijuana usage. Marijuana possessions must present registration as a mandatory step. The registry fee to acquire a medical cannabis ID ranges from $25 (Alaska and the District of Columbia) to $200 (Illinois, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Oregon).

There are requirements in the process of registration for a medical marijuana ID card, such as proof of residency. However, some states will allow the usage of ID cards from another state.

Possession limit

The least amount allowed for usable marijuana is 1 ounce, which is the limit in the state of Montana, along with at least 12 seedlings and 4 mature flowering plants.

The most allowed are 24 ounces of usable cannabis, which is the limit in the state of Oregon, along with up to 6 mature plants.
