Rules for Out-of-State Patients

Non-California residents are allowed to purchase recreational and medical marijuana.

If an out-of-state patient wants medical marijuana, they must make an appointment to speak with and be recommended by a physician licensed in the state of California, just like a state resident.
If an out-of-state resident wants to purchase recreational marijuana, all they need to have is identification, such as a driver’s license, state ID, or federal ID.

Please remember that marijuana purchased in California can only be consumed and kept in California. You cannot take the marijuana products outside of the state.

Can I use an expired ID at a dispensary?

Just as you need ID to get into a bar, you need a valid California driver’s license or passport. Valid licenses from other states will work, too.
