Indiana Regulated Cannabis Program overview

Type of program: NONE

Currently, Indiana has some of the most stringent marijuana laws in the country. Shockingly, even possession of one joint can potentially be punishable by a fine of $5,000 or a year in prison. Tragically, African-Americans remain 3.5 times more susceptible to arrest for marijuana possession than whites.

As you can guess, there are no medical marijuana dispensaries in Indiana. However, some legislators in the state are working hard to change the archaic laws and establish a legal program under which patients suffering from a list of qualifying medical conditions can obtain an Indiana medical marijuana card.

Indiana’s 2021 legislative session started with nearly a dozen bills regarding the state’s handling of medical and recreational marijuana laws. Many of them dealt specifically with medical marijuana. Only one managed to find its way to the governor’s office. The rest were ignored and set aside.

Indiana’s medical marijuana program has been sidelined yet again, in spite of the many bills introduced in recent years. At least a dozen cannabis bills regarding regulations, decriminalization, and legalization were put on the table. Not one of them received a committee hearing.
