Can NH patients get medical marijuana in other states? Not really
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
While New Hampshire patients wait for marijuana dispensaries to be established in this state, a process that may take years, it’s easy to wonder whether they could just drive over the border and get their doctor’s order filled at dispensaries already up and running in neighboring states.
The answer? Not really.
The only possibility is Maine, whose medical marijuana law includes a “reciprocity clause” that allows out-of-state residents to get marijuana.
However, this is allowed only if you have a medical certificate from a physician or osteopath certified to practice in Maine. It’s not enough to have a certificate from your own doctor in New Hampshire; you’d have to establish a relationship with a Maine doctor, which at a minimum would include office visits.
That clause was designed “to allow people who summer in Maine, or college students, to get (marijuana),” said Marietta D’Agostino, director of the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program. “We’re certainly not looking to have people drive up for the day to get it.”
Heading west instead of east won’t help: While Vermont’s medical marijuana law allows certificates from New Hampshire doctors, it is limited to Vermont residents only.
Massachusetts may have dispensaries operating by next year, but it is also limited to state residents.

Beverly Hills"marijuana moms" gather for high class dinner party
Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, July, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
The women vaporize the marijuana, which they say gives them the benefits without the smoke.
Parenting and pot may seem like a taboo combination, but a group of Beverly Hills moms swear it is the secret to their success.
The Beverly Hills Cannabis Club recently gathered at the home of founder Cheryl Shuman, the self-proclaimed "Martha Stewart of Marijuana," for a non-traditional "pot luck" dinner.
Cheryl Shuman, far right, said used cannabis therapy after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer..
The menu included chicken and fettuccine topped with marinara sauce made with cannabis-infused olive oil, as well as garlic bread with cannabis-infused butter.
Many of the women who congregated at Shuman's said they used medical marijuana to help them battle chronic pain, cancer and anxiety. They said their goal isn't to get completely stoned, but rather to take the edge off.
The women told ABC News that they believe marijuana has made them better mothers.
"Cannabis not only made me a better mom. Cannabis made me a better human being," Shuman told ABC News' Elizabeth Vargas.
The 53-year-old said that 10 years ago she was desperate for an escape as her marriage fell apart. Taking Prozac in the morning and Xanax at night wasn't doing the job, so her therapist suggested she "smoke a joint."
The women dined on cannabis-infused cuisine.
"So I took a hit off of it I was smiling and happy and I was like, 'this is really great,'" she said in an interview with ABC News.
Shuman claimed she felt better after the puffs than she did from taking the pharmaceuticals. And her daughter said she certainly saw a difference.
"I felt like my mom was checked out on prescription pills. It was like living with a zombie. When she would smoke she was smiling. She was connecting with us. It felt like we had our mom back," her daughter, Aimee, said.
