New Orleans has the best of everything Louisiana has to offer. In addition to the culture and celebrations, it has medical marijuana care options. You can find doctors ready to help patients like you right here in the Crescent City. Learn how to get a recommendation in New Orleans.
If you visit New Orleans from a different state, you cannot get a recommendation from a Louisiana doctor. Louisiana allows state residents who have eligible conditions to request one. Out-of-state patients do not have the option to get a temporary recommendation.
Patients who have medical marijuana cards also can’t use their cards to get medicine or a recommendation. Louisiana has no reciprocity laws, meaning it doesn’t accept out-of-state cards or recommendations. It is also illegal to transport cannabis medicine over state lines due to federal law. Remember to account for these laws before you visit Louisiana from a different state.
Louisiana residents can find plenty of doctors in New Orleans registered to recommend medicinal marijuana. Doctors who have medical marijuana licenses have permission from the Board of Medical Examiners to provide medical cannabis care. Every Louisiana doctor we list has one of these licenses, as well as a license to practice in the state.
After your doctor gives you a recommendation, you can take it to one of nine dispensaries throughout the state. Each parish has a dispensary that serves patients in the area. At your dispensary, the staff will help you find a product that fits your symptoms.
