Louisiana: Bill To Reduce Marijuana Penalties Pending


Louisiana MarijuanaLegislation is pending to reduce mandatory minimum penalties for certain marijuana offenses.

House Bill 103 reduces penalties and incarceration time for those convicted more than once of possessing marijuana, and removes cannabis possession as an offense that qualifies for mandatory minimum sentences under the state’s habitual offender (‘three strikes’) law.

Specifically, the proposal seeks to lower the maximum penalty for a second marijuana possession offense from five years imprisonment to no more than one-year. It lowers the maximum penalty for a subsequent marijuana conviction from 20-years imprisonment to no more than two-years.

Under present law, Louisiana’s penalties for marijuana offenses are among the toughest in the nation.

  1. Correction: Louisiana’s penalties for marijuana offenses are among the dumbest in the nation.

  2. New Orleans ladies
    A sassy style that will drive you crazy
    And they hold you like the light
    Hugs the wick when this candle’s burning
    Them Creole babies
    They roll them thin ’cause their downright crazy
    And they roll them down by the river
    One skinny joint will last them forever

    All the way
    From Bourbon Street to Esplanade
    They all get high…
    They all get high…

  3. There might be a lot of legal issues with legalizing marijuana, but it should have never been made illegal in the first place! Marijuana works very well for pain management. Unless someone has tried cannabis for pain, they should not venture the opinion that it doesn’t work for medical purposes. Pain management with cannabis requires the right dosage. Using marijuana edibles is the right way to maintain pain reduction.

    These penalties are insane. The only right thing to do is pass the bill and get them reduced. Stand up for what is right, and be heard!
