Bills to Legalize Medical Marijuana

On February 14, 2017, the Indiana state Senate approved legislation granting epilepsy patients the freedom to make use of cannabis oil in the form of cannabidiol (CBD). The Senate Bill 327 is the first marijuana-related bill to get a hearing and be passed by the Senate. Thereafter, it was sent to the House for consideration.

The bill, which is supposed to take effect from July 1, 2017, defends the possession of cannabidiol if the patient or caregiver‘s child or ward has been given a written diagnosis by a physician stating that the person has Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome.

The substance that contains the cannabidiol must not contain any THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). It must also be sold by a wholesale drug distributor and delivered in packaging that has the origin, concentration and volume of the cannabidiol.

On February 21, 2017, the House, in a unanimous vote of 98 to 0, passed the House Bill 1148 designed to allow patients suffering from epileptic seizures to buy a non-intoxicating form of cannabis oil. When the bill is signed into law by the Indiana state Governor, it will allow epilepsy patients to purchase cannabis oil (that contains 0.3% THC or less) from licensed distributors across the state.

There is legislation on the table to establish a medical marijuana program. SB 255 and HB 1316 will establish the Department of Marijuana Enforcement (DOME) and will permit caregiver and patients with a to possess legal quantities of medical marijuana.

In August 2017, Rep. Jim Lucas announced that he will be introducing medical marijuana legislature at the next legislative session.

Possession and Cultivation Regulation

In Indiana, possession of marijuana is a Class B offense punishable by six months in jail and a fine of $1,000. Being in possession of marijuana that weighs less than 30 grams after a previous drug offense is punishable by one-year imprisonment and a fine of $5,000 or less.

A person in possession of marijuana without any intention to produce, finance the production of or deliver to end users will be punishable by the laws governing the sale and cultivation of marijuana.

Sale and Cultivation

Indiana is presently a very conservative state. So, it’s one of the states where cultivation of marijuana is prohibited for all end users. Currently, the sale of fewer than 30 grams of marijuana attracts a punishment of a maximum of 12 months in jail and a fine of $5,000 or less.

The sale of between 30 grams to 10 pounds of marijuana will attract a jail sentence of six to 30 months and a maximum fine of $10,000.

Telemedicine Services

Based on the provisions of the House Enrolled Act 1263, physicians and other licensed healthcare providers are allowed to use telemedicine services to issue prescriptions for some devices and non-controlled drugs. The prerequisite is that the provider has already established a relationship with the patient.

However, prescriptions for controlled substances like marijuana are not yet allowed to be issued through telemedicine.
