Q: Bonded out on a Class A misdemeanor. Can I move out of state for medical treatment that isn't available in Indiana

Arraignment was today where I pled not guilty for possession of marijuana less than 30g with prior. I have chronic pain and epilepsy. I want to move to Ohio or Illinois to receive medicinal marijuana treatment so I don't have to continue to worry about weed nazis.
