For both recreational users and medical patients, 1 oz. outside of the home, or 10 oz. inside the home.
Med & Rec – Up to 6 plants per person per household. Maximum of 12 plants.
Massachusetts doesn’t allow for medical marijuana reciprocity. However, anyone at least 21 years old can purchase cannabis products in dispensaries.
A medical marijuana card issued by Massachusetts is recognized as valid by some other states in the U.S. with a medical marijuana program and reciprocity.
The following states accept or recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards:
However, this does not always mean you can purchase cannabis at a medical marijuana dispensary (non-medical adult use is fine) — just that the state’s medical marijuana laws protect you to some extent. It is wise to call the dispensary ahead if you are a medical cannabis patient from another state and intend to purchase medical marijuana.
The qualifying condition usually has to match between states, so if your qualifying condition is accepted in one state and not your visiting state, your recommendation is not necessarily valid. You are also accountable to the visiting state’s medical marijuana laws, not the state that issued your card.
The following states accept out-of-state applications, allowing visiting MMJ patients to use medical cannabis for the duration of their stay:
Employers are not required to accommodate on-site use of medical marijuana at the workplace. However, an employee who uses medical marijuana to treat a disability is entitled to a reasonable accommodation under the state disability discrimination law. The employer must prove that performance is significantly impaired by the employee’s use of medical marijuana.
Different products require different tests in Massachusetts, but in general, cannabis must be tested for contaminants such as solvents/solvent residue, bacterial, fungal, and microbial growth, heavy metals, pesticides (which are not allowed to be used), plant growth regulators and cannabinoid profile.
In all states with a medical marijuana program, the only way to purchase medicinal cannabis products is via a legally-licensed dispensary or pharmacy or another legally designated space to buy cannabis. Only those with a legal license to sell cannabis can do so.
Massachusetts now allows the delivery of adult-use marijuana and marijuana products, but they must be pre-verified before placing the orders. Buyers are limited to one ounce of marijuana or its combined dry weight equivalent in marijuana concentrate or edible marijuana products per day.
All states with a medical marijuana program have some restrictions on where a person can legally use cannabis. Near schools, nurseries, parks, or other places where children are expected to be, using cannabis is illegal. Use of cannabis on or in federal land or buildings, hospitals, or other such healthcare space is also illegal. Private members’ clubs and landowners may also prohibit cannabis use on their property or restrict it at their discretion.
The safest place to use medical cannabis is in the safety of your own home. It is wise to use common sense, keep consumption out of public view, and utilize discreet consumption methods wherever possible.
