51. The Constitution allows them to form a new state or join another state with the permission...

... of their current state. (Or, more accurately, it literally says they can't form a new state or join to another state without their current state's permission, which at least implies that they could with their current state's permission.)

The Constitution doesn't have a way for them to secede from the whole US, though.
