As Maine’s largest medical cannabis organization, the Wellness Connection fields many questions from individuals interested in cannabis. And it makes sense – though recreational use was approved by voters in 2016, legislation is still unclear on the way forward. As a result, we operate under Maine’s Medical Cannabis Program to provide consistent, safe access to medical cannabis to qualified patients.
 
Here is a most frequently asked question we receive from patients, consumers and the cannabis-curious who want to know more about the cannabis program in Maine.
 
 

If I have an out of state medical card, can I buy marijuana (weed) in Maine?

 

Yes. The Wellness Connection of Maine does accept out-of-state members or visiting qualifying patients.

 

A visiting qualifying patient is defined as a patient with a debilitating medical condition who is not a resident of Maine. This individual can also be a resident of Maine for less than 30 days, who qualified by another jurisdiction for the medical use of marijuana.

As of June 6th, 2019, a qualifying patient visiting Maine from another jurisdiction that authorizes the medical use of marijuana pursuant to a law or regulation of another state or political subdivision may engage in conduct authorized for a qualifying patient by these rules if the following 2 criteria are met:

  • Home-jurisdiction certification: The visitor shall possess a valid medical use of marijuana certification issued by the visitor’s home jurisdiction.
  • Photographic identification: The visitor shall possess a valid photographic identification card or driver’s license issued by the visitor’s home-jurisdiction.
