Can Idaho Residents Buy Medical Marijuana In Oregon?

idaho cannabisMedical Marijuana Is Readily Available To Idaho Residents In Oregon

If you live in Idaho, and need medical marijuana, just cross the Snake River into Oregon. Of course there is the doctor visit and mailing your information and fee to the Oregon Health Authority first. For those in Idaho that are not aware of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program rules, out of state residents can participate in the program. You are not allowed to bring medical marijuana back and/or consume medical marijuana in Idaho, however, you can enjoy it as much as you want while you are in Oregon.

So once you get your Oregon medical marijuana paperwork in order, along with your proof of mailing, you are ready to consume medical marijuana in Oregon. All you need is a place to buy it right? Luckily for Idaho residents that are members of the OMMP, medical marijuana dispensaries are popping up in Eastern Oregon like weeds. I have cousins in Idaho that cross the river to avoid sales tax, why not avoid medical marijuana prohibition while you’re at it! I pasted a story below that talks about the medical marijuana boom in Eastern Oregon, as well as a piece about alcohol consumption dropping when medical marijuana is introduced in a state!

Study: When Medical Pot is Introduced, Alcohol Consumption Drops

Idaho residents are interested in Oregon’s medical marijuana dispensaries

Medical marijuana is for sale legally at the 45th Parallel dispensary in Ontario, Ore.One of the more interesting journeys of 2011 (and we had a few) occurred last March, when we visited a spot called the 45th Parallel, right across the Idaho-Oregon border. That’s where we found a medical marijuana dispensary, offering such varieties as chocolate chunk, blue dream and purple wreck.

What we discovered was an increasing number of Idaho clients who had recently bought property in Oregon, just so they could have legal access to medicinal pot for AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis and major skeletal injuries.

Moscow Republican Rep. Tom Trail told us that he was carefully crafting something called the Idaho Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act, which is expected to surface again when the Idaho Legislature convenes in a couple of weeks.

A new study, reported in today’s Missoulian, indicates that states that have legalized medical marijuana have seen a decrease in traffic fatalities and beer sales, as pot became a substitute for alcohol. To date, 16 states have passed laws legalizing medical marijuana.

The report, authored by D. Mark Anderson of Montana State University and Daniel Reese of the University of Colorado, is under review by the Journal of Law and Economics.

  1. Idahoans have to live in a repressed LDS Republican unelightened world. Even if they are dying of terminal cancer…which I am. I have Pancreatic Cancer. The only thing that makes me feel good, dulls the pain, makes me not throw up or feel sick & helps with my appetite stimulant , go to the bathroom & fall asleep is Pot. So get over it conservatives…You are on the wrong side of History …ONCE AGAIN.
    The only choice I have4 is to buy Pot & smuggle it back over the Border, it’s not a state line to those of us who have cancer. It’s a BORDER!
    S….. DO iiWISH TO BE A LAWBREAKER. NO.
    DO I HAVE A CHOICE!
    NOT IF I WANT TO BE ABLE TO GET HROUGH 3 MORE MONTHS OF CHEMO & RADIATION.
    SOMEDAY THE LAW WILL CHANGE IN IDAHO///ESPECIALLY WHEN THERY REALIZE HOW WRONG IT IS & HOW MUCH MONEY THE REPUBLICANS ARE NOT ABLE TO GET FROM TAX COLLECTION.
    THE BUSINESS BOTTOM LINE WILL CHANGE THE WAY THE REPUBLICANS IN THE STATE HOUSE THINK. IT WON’T BE DOIING THE RIGHT THIUNG FOR ANY OTHER REASON.
    REPUBLICANS ARE COMPLETE MONEY WHORES.
    WHEN THEY CHANGE THE LAW & THEIR MINDS IT WILL BE BECASUE OF THE $$$$$ THEY ARE MISSING OUT ON FOR STATE TAX REVENUE.
    i JUST WISH THEY DIDNHJ’T HAVE TO TAKE SO LONG.
    MEANWHILE mYSELF & OTHERS HAVE TO NEEDLESSLY SUFFER.
    BUT THEN i HAVE M=NEVER KNOWN A COMPASSIONATE CONSERVITIVE.
    THAT’S DEFINATELY A OXYMORON!

  2. Marijuana CANNOT be sold legally in Oregon. Even under the OMMA, sales of marijuana are illegal. Please do not spread misinformation. If 45th Parallel is selling marijuana, they are in violation of Oregon law.

  3. I live in Maryland and have prescriptions filled in Alabama. Come on TIO, the OMMP is in it’s 14th year.What’s the procedure for overturning a ballot initiative in Oregon? I always get to laugh when people say California’s CUA is going to go away. It seems not many people understand that the only way to overturn a citizen generated ballot initiative in California is by way of another citizen generated ballot initiative.

    Rhode Island has reciprocity. Of course who the heck travels to RI?

    How does that make them greedy? It sounds to me like you’re the one who is greedy. Reminds me of the third grade. I have candy and you can’t have any. Must be nice to live in a state that has a MMJ program and pass judgement on everyone else. The fact that marijuana shouldn’t even be illegal in the first place makes your statement even more ignorant. Also, it is not interstate trafficking if the marijuana does not cross the border. Judge not lest ye be judged.

    This will be what brings down the ommp. Greedy people. Inter state trafficking will not be tolerated for much longer.
