Louisiana is know for its colorful culture, and some of the best cuisine in the world.   Named for King Louis the XIV, Louisiana was purchased from France, in 1803, part of the ‘Louisiana Purchase’, which roughly doubled the size of the U.S. at the time.  The population has a rich mix of French,  French Canadian, and African American ethnicities which make up Creole and Cajun culture and one of worlds most renowned Jazz music scenes. Stopping by the best dispensary en route to the Jazz Fest or amazing restaurants would be epic.

Access to good weed and dispensaries is still lacking for a city with amazing tastes and activities to experience.  Medical marijuana has been legal since 2019, the first dispensary in Baton Rouge opening that year.  However the list of medical conditions needs to be met and a State card purchased as we’ll detail below.  In 2021 a big improvement to the Program was made when flower and prerolls were finally allowed.

Another boost to cannabis and dispensary access comes in the way of Delta 8 and other secondary cannabinoids, which are also legal in the State.  There are more delta 8 dispensaries than cannabis dispensaries- also called Medical Marijuana Pharmacies in State law books.
