Where is it safe to purchase & consume?
Puerto Ricans looking to access medical marijuana must go through an application process that may take weeks and requires a $100-150 fee. Once completed, a patient is entered into a database with the Puerto Rican Department of Health and is only permitted to purchase from their nearest storefront dispensary. While it’s still illegal to smoke marijuana on the island, patients are allowed to consume other forms, but not in public.
