AK, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, HI, IL, ME, MD, MA, MI, MT, NV, NH, NJ, NM, NY, ND, OH, OR, PA, RI, VT, and WA. Whew!

What to Bring:

The following two items are required to make purchases at D.C. dispensaries:

  1. State-issued photo ID
  2. Current state-issued medical marijuana card OR state-issued document proving current certification in the medical marijuana program. If your state doesn’t require a physical medical marijuana card, please bring any mail you’ve received from the program or print a copy of your online certification record in the state registry.

I know DC dispensaries and they are not, repeat not, gonna let you in the shop if you forget your documents. This ain’t Cali, bruh.

How much cannabis can I buy?

Under D.C. law, patients may purchase up to 4 ounces within a 30-day window. You may visit as often as you’d like, as long as your total dispensary purchases in D.C. do not exceed 4 ounces within a 30-day period. If you reach your limit, you’ll be able to purchase again as soon as one of your previous purchases becomes more than 30 days old.
