[00:00:00] Angie Calhoun: So, Kris many out of state patients want to know about the reciprocity process that is not only in the bill, but how will that operate and maneuver through the department of health?
[00:00:29] Kris Jones: You know what I can do that. It’s going to be very similar to what we require for Mississippi residents. We know we have a number of people who travel to our state every year that may come to see family or whatever.
And so they will apply online. They can apply 30 days ahead of arriving to the state. If it’s a planned visit, again, same process. If they have an active card in another state, that’s really what we’re looking for. So, we’ll be asking for that information… And then there are some different limits on how much of the medical cannabis they can purchase while they’re here and how long they can do that.
But in addition to just visiting our state, there’s also provisions for people who may be new to our state in terms of moving here. So if someone has been a resident less than 45 days, they can always use that temporary provision and transition to the Mississippi resident status also.
[00:01:21] Angie Calhoun: Gosh, you know, that’s just wonderful for the patients of other states to be able to come here and you know, as a move in, or as a visitor and I’m just so thankful to have that part. That provision in there because, patients should be able to travel and so…
[00:01:38] Kris Jones: Absolutely. And we’ve gotten a lot of communication from people saying, you know, I’ve moved to the state, and I was in a patient in the state that I used to live in. What do I do? I’ve been waiting. So, we were really excited to see that option in there also.
