Cannabis use, whether medical or recreational, is illegal in Nebraska. Nebraska did, however, partially decriminalize cannabis in 1979. This means that some jurisdictions enforce cannabis laws quite harshly, whilst others may be more tolerant.
Nebraska and Oklahoma filed an original action against Colorado for legalizing cannabis in 2013 and 2014, arguing that it caused an increase in the cannabis trade in their own states. In March 2016, the Court denied Nebraska and Oklahoma’s request to proceed with its suit.
It is illegal to grow cannabis in Nebraska.
Growing cannabis in the state falls under the Sales/Manufacture part of state law, which can result in one to 20 years of imprisonment and a fine of up to $25,000. The actual punishment will depend on the amount cultivated.
