What you need to know about NYC cannabis as a visitor

There are a few essential things you need to know before your visit:

Who can buy cannabis: Anyone aged 21 and older is allowed to purchase cannabis products in New York. Both residents and non-residents of New York can buy cannabis, provided they meet the legal age requirements.

Delivery orders only accept debit and credit cards; you cannot give your delivery driver cash for your order. Check out the requirements for receiving cannabis deliveries in New York City.

What ID is required: A valid government-issued photo ID is required to purchase cannabis products in New York. This can include a driver’s license, passport, or state ID card. It does not need to be issued by the state of New York. Ensure your ID is not expired and matches the information you provide at the dispensary.

How to find a dispensary in New York

Finding a dispensary in New York is easy with the help of the NYC Office of Cannabis Management (OCM). OCMs database keeps track of all legally operating dispensaries in the state, including all The Travel Agency locations, so that you can locate them throughout the city and beyond. If a dispensary is not listed on the OCM database, it’s not licensed to operate in New York.

Our tips for travelers

Here are some essential tips to help you make the most out of your experience while staying safe and compliant with local laws:

Purchase smaller servings: When traveling, opt for single pre-rolls or small packs of edibles, such as Hepworth’s Bubblegum Sherbert pre-roll two pack and two-pill packs from 1906. This allows you to control your consumption more effectively and ensures you won’t have to worry about leftovers if you’re hopping on a flight home.

Prioritize portable options: Choose portable products such as edibles or disposable vapes. These are convenient for travelers as they are discreet and easy to transport. Plus, they eliminate the need for additional accessories like rolling papers or lighters.

Research local laws: Familiarize yourself with local cannabis laws before traveling to New York. In addition to this guide, you can check out ny.gov for more details.

Consume responsibly: Always consume cannabis responsibly, especially when traveling to a new destination. Pace yourself and be mindful of your surroundings to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
