Louisiana Marijuana Laws

Louisiana Marijuana Laws

Louisiana has not decriminalized marijuana for recreational nor medical purposes like some other states. Louisiana considers marijuana a Schedule I illegal substance and considers it a harmful drug. Penalties are strict so it's best to avoid getting caught with marijuana at all.

Penalties

  • For first offenders, possession of ANY AMOUNT is punishable by 6 months in jail and a $500 fine. A second charge is a felony offense, punishable by 5 years in prison and a $2,000 fine and a third or subsequent offense is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and $5,000 fine.

It is important to know that law enforcement can charge you with "intent to distribute" if they believe you have more than a personal amount.

  • Cultivation or distribution of less then 60lbs of marijuana is a felony punishable by 5-30 years behind bars and a $50,000 fine.

  • Distributing or cultivating 60-2,000lbs is a felony, punishable by 5-30 years in prison, and a $50,000-100,000 fine.

  • Possession or distribution of marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school, church, or public house is punishable by a maximum term of 45 years imprisonment for first offenders, and up to 90 years for subsequent offenses.
