Traveling to Pennsylvania, or do you live there and still don’t get the laws? We feel your pain, so we searched the web for you and pulled together the cannabis laws for consumers in Pennsylvania.
Please note that laws are consistently changing and although we work hard to keep this information as up to date as possible we suggest checking with the state’s government site as well.
*Anyone under the age of 21 who wants to apply for a medical cannabis card must have a caretaker who is 21 or older.
Patients must always carry their medical cards on them if they are carrying cannabis. As a card holder you can possess up to a 30-day supply.
If you are caught with cannabis and are not a medical card holder you can face large fines and jail time.
Card holders can purchase a 30-day supply and are allowed to re-up during the last 7 days of their previous 30-day allotment.

It is illegal to grow cannabis in Pennsylvania.
If you are found guilty of driving under the influence of usable cannabis you will face DUI charges and penalties, even if you are a medical patient.
As a patient you can legally transport cannabis as long as it is sealed in its original packaging. Legal limits apply.
Moving cannabis across state lines is illegal and can result in a steep penalty if you’re caught.
It is also illegal to ship or send it in the mail.
Cannabis is still illegal on the federal level so it is always a risk if you decide to fly with it.

Pennsylvania doesn’t offer reciprocity.
