It's going to be different in every state or province that has this legal. Best idea is to not go out of your state with your prescription, and if you need to, like to go visit family in another state/province, go to your pharmacist to find out the EXACT rules of the place you are about to visit.

So basically you're a criminal or not depending on which side of the state line you're standing on. The logic of a victimless crime is hard to wrap your mind around.

Yeah, that's about it. Up here in Canada, the rules for everything seem to be different in every province. Alberta used to be the one province where you could drink at 18, and drive at 15. Not sure if they brought the ages up to 19, and 16 yet. I wish they would just figure out a set of workable rules across the country, but each province seems to work like a different country itself.

Yes, whether something is right or whether something is wrong should not be dependent upon which particular geographical location you happen to be occupying at the moment. Either something is wrong or it isn't.

Here in Bozeman (MT) we can have up to 1 oz for personal use. MMCH can also buy from their local dealers legally if they have their card, rather than paying some of the higher end prices that most clinics charge. This has created a competition between the local dealer & the clinics or in other words, many dealers are now acting legit and charging lower prices for better bud. We can have up to three plants in flower and 3 more in veg state.

You would probably be surprised at how few people in the other states actually know that marijuana is essentially legal in many areas of the country. And of course there is a whole new generation coming up who will never remember a time when it was illegal in their state.

For sure. It amazes me at how many people use it but how few of them turn out to vote when its on the ballot.
I have severe muscle contractions in my neck that create migraine like headaches, the meds I used to take took the pain away but I couldn't hardly function when I was on them. With MM I can function with no issue and have no pain at all. Many do not understand it ain't about the "buzz", its about pain management.
