Can dispensaries ship Out of State?
The short and simple answer is no. Since the Constitution gives the federal government explicit control over all interstate travel and commerce, no state law can permit transportation of cannabis outside its borders while cannabis remains illegal at the federal level. Furthermore, anyone who uses a postal service to ship medical marijuana – such as USPS, FedEx, UPS, or DHL – is at risk of facing federal prosecution. It is of utmost importance to remember – it cannot be stressed enough – that the federal government considers marijuana as an illegal substance. Therefore, shipping medical marijuana out of state cannot be done lawfully, even by marijuana dispensaries.
There is always an exception to every role, even though cannabis remains illegal at a federal lever some methods are however used to transport cannabis from state to state without any risk of having trouble with the law. Having cannabis ship for laboratory research purposes is however legal and cannabis can be moved across state boarders this way without any hassle.
Cannabis has been shown to be moved legally as well through state boarders by some dispensaries like koos.org for medical purposes but unlike other cases it has to be moved on discretely while crossing state boarders
