First things first, you need a medical cannabis card to buy legal marijuana in New Jersey, provided by New Jersey’s Medicinal Cannabis Program. The first step is to visit a Medicinal Cannabis Program (MCP) physician—you can start by asking your regular doctor if they’re in the MCP—and receive a referral to the program for your qualifying condition.
In order to get the card, you must have a “bona fide relationship” with the physician who is registered with the MMP. You also need to be a New Jersey resident, and to have been diagnosed with a qualifying health condition.
You can choose any dispensary in New Jersey (the state technically calls dispensaries like us Alternative Treatment Centers [ATCs], but you can only be registered with one location at a time. If you want to change where you’re registered, there’s no cost to do so).
Yes. Now that we’re adult use, you can enter HoneyGrove dispensary without a card.
HoneyGrove to provide specifics
The short answer is “yes,” but there’s some paperwork you need to do.
First, the basics: New Jersey allows people who are medical marijuana patients in other states to be qualified patients in New Jersey for up to six months. Additionally, New Jersey now has reciprocity for out-of-state medical marijuana patients who have the same qualifications as New Jersey state resident MMJ patients. Reciprocity lasts for up to six months.
Now, the details: Before you can legally buy medical marijuana in New Jersey with an out-of-state medical card, you must be authorized by a New Jersey medical marijuana physician. To do this, you’ll go through the same process as state residents who apply for the medical marijuana program (see above for some details). Once you receive physician approval, you’re entered into the state’s medical marijuana program registry. You’ll receive a medical marijuana card that is good for up to six months or the amount of time you will be visiting New Jersey, whichever is shorter.
If you’ll be staying longer than six months, you should consider applying for a medical marijuana card as a full-time New Jersey resident.
