Pennsylvania Marijuana Laws

Pennsylvania Marijuana Laws

The Pennsylvania House legalized marijuana only for patients with serious medical conditions. For all others, the substance remains illegal.

For possessing up to 30 grams, a person may be charged with a $500 fine and spend 30 days in prison. Possession of a larger amount of marijuana is punishable by a maximum fine of $5,000 and 1 year of imprisonment. Furthermore, a subsequent conviction doubles the penalties.

Selling up to 30 grams may result in similar penalties as for possession of the equal amount of the drug. The sale of up to 1,000 pounds entails incarceration for 3 years and a fine of up to $25,000.

Penalties for the cultivation of any number of the marijuana plants include a 5-year sentence and a $15,000 fine.

Public consumption is illegal.

Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Laws

Qualifying patients that have obtained valid ID cards, as well as their primary caregivers, may legally possess a 30-day supply of cannabis-infused products, such as oils, polls, topicals, liquids, and tinctures.

Patients are not allowed to grow their own weed. However, they can purchase it in any of the state-licensed dispensaries.
