Can I Use a Medical Marijuana Card from Another State in Utah?

The Utah Medical Cannabis Act permits a medical cannabis patient with a valid out-of-state medical marijuana card to use medical marijuana in Utah based on certain conditions. Their qualifying condition must be in the Utah-approved list of approved debilitating medical conditions, and their medicinal cannabis dosage must be lawful in the state. An out-of-state medical marijuana card is only valid in Utah for 45 days, after which the non-resident patient must apply for a non-Utah resident medical marijuana card (temporary medical marijuana card).

To apply for a non-resident medical marijuana card, an out-of-state patient must be evaluated and certified to be eligible for medical cannabis by a licensed medical provider in Utah. They will then apply on the EVS for a temporary medical marijuana card. If their application is successful, they will be issued a temporary medical marijuana card, valid for 21 days. In Utah, out-of-state patients may only obtain two temporary medical marijuana cards in a year.
