Can a Tourist Buy Medicinal Cannabis in Puerto Rico?

If you’re visiting Puerto Rico, you may be wondering whether you’ll be able to purchase and use medicinal marijuana while you’re there. You also might be wondering where you can access it. This miniature guide to medicinal marijuana for tourists will tell you all you need to know so you can start to plan your trip.

First thing’s first, what are the laws?

It’s true that marijuana is now legal in Puerto Rico — but only for medicinal purposes. So those wishing to purchase medical marijuana must have a valid medical marijuana card. Right now, smoking marijuana — even for medical reasons — is still illegal. You may use cannabis in the form of extracts, patches, pills, topicals, or vapor. Note that the use of medical marijuana is only approved in private residences.

So, what about tourists? 

Visitors to Puerto Rico are welcome to buy cannabis at the marijuana dispensaries.  However, they must have a valid medical marijuana card from their own state. They also need to visit the Medicinal Cannabis Regulatory Board in person to pay an application fee that gives them permission to use a Puerto Rican medicinal cannabis establishment. You must also carry your medical marijuana card with you at all times to avoid legal punishments, which can include fines and jail time.
