What You Need to Know

Idaho has no medical marijuana program at this time. Possession of any amount of cannabis is considered a crime, and both medical and recreational marijuana use are illegal.

Qualifying Conditions

Most programs have a list of qualifying conditions required for becoming a medical marijuana patient. We expect that future laws in Idaho will include a list of qualifying conditions to be eligible for medical cannabis or CBD.

Legal Topics

Idaho has one of the most punitive laws in the country when it comes to cannabis, as even possession of the smallest amounts may be considered a misdemeanor crime.

There have been attempts to reform the state’s cannabis laws, with ballot initiatives voted on in 2012 and 2014. However, these initiatives failed. Another effort was made in 2020, but the ballot was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2015, Senate Bill 1146a passed the Idaho Legislature and would have legalized CBD oil for epileptic patients. However, the bill was vetoed by Gov. Butch Otter.

CBD oil containing up to 0.3% THC and the CBD-based prescription Epidiolex are now legal in Idaho. Idaho was the last state in the country to legalize hemp.


Under most states’ medical cannabis laws, a caregiver can be assigned to assist with the purchase and administering of medical cannabis to minor patients or patients who otherwise may need assistance from others.

Most states have a minimum caregiver age requirement (typically 18 or 21). In many states, the caregiver must also have no criminal convictions relating to drug offenses or violent crimes.


Idaho doesn’t recognize other states’ medical cards because cannabis is illegal in the state. The following states accept or recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards:

*Visitors must complete a visiting patient application with the state program.

States that have legalized recreational cannabis for adults 21 and older but do not accept out-of-state cards include:
