Hi all -- My sister and I live in Queens, NYC. She is still suffering now 3 months with post-herpetic neuralgia from cranial shingles. She talks suicidally sometimes as it feels like there is no end in sight. A few people, even the neurologist, told her that smoking pot might help her pain. Not being pot smokers, we have no contacts, and most of our family are very straight-laced so we can't ask them. I did see a post here about going up near some of the bodegas at 135th st and Broadway in Manhattan, but I think that is too risky buying like that. I do have a brother who lives in Nevada.
My questions are: if the pot/medical marijuana is obtained in a legal state, is it prosecutable in a non-legal state? Could my sister go to a doctor in a legal state, get the script, get the pot, and then travel/come home with it without fear of getting into trouble with the law?
Thanks for any help.
