Nebraska Marijuana Information
Currently all forms of marijuana are illegal in Nebraska – that’s just the way it is for now. There have been some valiant efforts by lawmakers to introduce medical marijuana legislation, but they haven’t gotten far yet. The penalties for possession aren’t as strict as in some states; less than an ounce is an infraction or a misdemeanor. However, for a pound or above that you’re looking at a felony. It’s also a felony to cultivate cannabis, and possession of any amount of hash or concentrates is a felony. Ouch! The good news is in Nebraska, like many other states coming slowly out of prohibition, lawmakers are working to get things changed.
Nebraska has very severe penalties for sale/manufacture as well; sale or manufacture of any amount is a felony and could get you up to 5 years in jail and/or a $25,000 fine. They aren’t messing around here and we truly advise caution. If you find yourself in a pinch with the law, check out our Nebraska Cannabis Lawyers page for help!
Obviously in Nebraska, as in all the other states in this great country of ours, people use cannabis. The challenge here is to move legal reform along as quickly as possible so folks can get their medicine and stop going to jail for using this most wonderful plant.
Sen. Tommy Garrett introduced LB 643 in January 2015, a bill would allow for a small window of opportunity for the most seriously ill patients. Once again, the message to some is you must be dying to earn the right to good, safe medicine. In the end the bill was voted down. The good news is, there are compassionate lawmakers in Nebraska who are working to change things. As always, we recommend that you contact your legislator if you live in Nebraska.
