Where Are Edibles Legal? 

In the United States, over 30 states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes. 11 have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes. But how many of these states have legalized the consumption and sale of marijuana edibles?

Outside of the U.S. only two countries have legalized marijuana – Uruguay and Canada. Do these states allow marijuana edibles?

Let’s take a look!

By Countries

Here are the countries that have legalized marijuana and a look at whether or not edibles are legal:

Canada

Edibles are legal in Canada and sold both online and through brick-and-mortar marijuana stores.

Uruguay

At this point, no other country has legalized marijuana nationwide. Many people believe that the consumption of Cannabis is legal in the Netherlands, specifically in Amsterdam, however it is not. It is tolerated and has been decriminalized but continues to be illegal.

Crossing state-lines:

The only instances where it’s legal to cross state-lines with marijuana edibles, is if you’re going from one state where you can legally purchase them – such as Washington – directly into another, such as Oregon. However, we advise being aware of each state’s laws, as states are different in regards to how much you are allowed to possess.
