Indiana Marijuana Laws

Indiana remains one of the few states in the country where marijuana is illegal in all forms.

Possession of any quantity of weed is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days of imprisonment and a $1,000 fine. If you have even a single joint and had committed a drug offense previously, the punishment may be up to 1 year in prison and a fine of $5,000. Possession of more than 30 grams of marijuana is a felony and may lead to a 2,5-year incarceration and a maximum fine of $10,000.

Selling of up to 30 grams is punishable by jail time up to 1 year and a $5,000 fine. Distributing larger amounts of the substance or a subsequent offense is punished with harsher penalties.

Public consumption and home cultivation of cannabis are also crimes in Indiana.
