Typically, a medical or recreational use card is required, with each state having its own process to apply for these.
Yes. In addition to a marijuana license or card (if required in your state), you will also need to show proof of ID. This is typically in the form of a government-issued ID. Acceptable IDs usually include a state-issued ID card, driver’s license, passport or US armed forces ID card.
*Note: The ID must be up to date and not expired.
Many states where marijuana is legalized allow non-residents who are 21+ in age to purchase and consume cannabis within the borders of it’s state. However, traveling with cannabis over state lines (even if just passing through) of another state where marijuana is illegal is against the law and can carry significant federal charges (i.e. interstate felony).
The amount of cannabis or marijuana you can purchase will vary depending on the state you are in and whether or not it is for recreational or medical purposes.

For example, state law, and local city and county ordinances may mandate the hours during which cannabis can be sold (similar to bars). Each of our listings will indicate the hours of operation so you’ll never be left wondering if you can get your green.
