Definitive answer

Recently we received a letter to the editor in response to Brad Bynum’s report “Licensed to ill” (cover story, April 28). The letter claimed, “California medical marijuana cards are only good in California as Nevada medical marijuana cards are only good in Nevada.”

Pam Graber, spokesperson for the Nevada program, reports in a prepared statement:

“The following states have medical marijuana programs and issue medical marijuana cards: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington. The Medical Marijuana dispensaries of the State of Nevada are authorized to sell medical marijuana to card holders from the states above if the patient presents a state or local government-issued medical marijuana card.”

The Nevada card may not be recognized in some states.
