A lot of folks ask me about the legality of marijuana in the states that have legalized it, and the answer I always give is I have no idea. It depends on where you are in the country, and you should always check with your local and state laws. For the purposes of this article I am going to assume you are in the states that have legalized medical or recreational marijuana.
Even if you are not in a state that legalized medical or recreational marijuana, it is still illegal to grow or possess it. That means you can’t grow it in your home and then you can’t sell it to others.
There are a few places that have legalized it, but the federal legal limit is far lower than the medical and recreational limit. So if you are caught with it, you could be in for a lot of trouble. The federal limit on the amount of marijuana you can possess is 10 grams, or approximately one eighth of an ounce. This means that you could be in for a $20 fine for possessing even a tenth of an ounce.
You can also grow your own at home and then sell it to others. The federal limit is 5 grams, or approximately one fifth of an ounce. And this is where things get really dangerous. The federal limit on the amount of marijuana you can possess is 15 grams, or approximately one third of an ounce. This means that you can be in for a 100 fine for possessing even a third of an ounce.
The law is also a concern because louisiana is known to have the most draconian laws in the country. The governor is currently in the middle of a legal battle with a local police department over whether they can set up a checkpoint where you could be stopped for carrying a joint. This would be illegal. I could be wrong about this, but the governor’s position is that the law is too harsh. “They need to make it a little more mild,” he said.
The law is a lot more lenient than I would’ve thought. In fact, if you’re caught by the police, louisiana laws mandate that you pay a $100 fine. Once this happens, you can’t possess any more. This is because the government has decided that the penalties are excessive. The law is also written so that there is a list of penalties for each crime. But, the fine is the highest possible.
The only criminal here is the governor of louisiana. The law is a little too forgiving. It says, “The fine is the highest possible,” but that still means that louisiana can fine you up to $100,000. That is insane. But, as the governor said, the law is written so that the fines are very high.
The fine is so high, the governor is saying, that it is the highest possible. The governor can even fine you up to the capitol.
While the governor is right, it’s not as high as louisiana can go. The capitol is a very small city in the state of louisiana. The governor may have had a point. There’s a city called louisiana, and the governor can’t even be bothered to send a letter to the capitol. But there are some other penalties which are much more on the nose.
Most of the penalties are very mild. For instance, if you don’t pay your taxes, you can get a $10,000 fine and be sentenced to six months in prison. If you fail to keep your property in good repair, you can go to jail for one year. If you make a $1000 noise violation and you cause a disturbance, you can be fined $500. You can even get a fine for any infraction that is not listed.
