Utah Medical Marijuana Penalties

In November of 2018, Utah passed a medical marijuana law by ballot initiative. It is good news, but it does not mean that it is safe or easy to get medical marijuana or is it legal to possess marijuana for most people. 

If you are found with less than 100 pounds of marijuana, you will likely receive a class B misdemeanor charge. The penalties may be a maximum of six months in jail and up to $1,000 in criminal fines.

If you receive a class B misdemeanor conviction for marijuana possession, you may be given the option to perform community service rather than pay a fine.

It is legal under Utah law for anyone to purchase and possess hemp extract, or CBD oil, if it contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These products must be registered with the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food.
