New Hampshire Allowing Reciprocity for Medical Cannabis Patients

Tue, Jul 11

New Hampshire is now allowing reciprocity for medical cannabis patients from other U.S. states and Canada, allowing authorized patients to access medical cannabis products in the state, In-Depth New Hampshire reports. Under the law, visiting patients can purchase medical cannabis from New Hampshire dispensaries three times per year using their valid medical cannabis identification issued by another state or Canada.  

If the out-of-state patient has a documented medical condition that is on New Hampshire’s medical cannabis qualifying conditions list, those patients may purchase cannabis at New Hampshire dispensaries at the same frequency as in-state qualifying patients. 

“People from other states with severe medical conditions who use therapeutic cannabis to alleviate their symptoms are welcome to travel to New Hampshire with the certainty that they will be able to safely access therapeutic cannabis while they visit our state,” Division of Public Health Services Director Tricia Tilley said in an interview with In Depth New Hampshire. 

Visiting patients must show their out-of-state medical cannabis ID card and matching photo identification. Under state law, there is a 2-ounce possession limit per patient, and all patients are limited to purchasing 2 ounces of cannabis in any 10-day period. 

There are seven medical cannabis dispensaries throughout the state.
