If I have an out of state medical card, can I buy marijuana (weed) in Maine?
Yes. A visiting qualifying patient (non-Maine resident, out-of-state visitor) is a patient with a debilitating medical condition who is not a resident of Maine or who has been a resident of Maine less than 30 days, who is qualified by another jurisdiction for the medical use of marijuana. Your state must be approved by the state of Maine.
