About Medical Marijuana in Indiana

There were attempts to legalize medical marijuana in Indiana. Bills were introduced in 2015 but were rejected. In 2017, CBD was legalized for epilepsy, and in 2018 CBD was legalized for any use.

There have been reductions in the punishment for simple possession, but penalties for possession with the intent to sell, deliver or distribute in any way have increased. At the moment, only medical CBD is available in Indiana. Otherwise, both medical and recreational marijuana is prohibited.

    Medical CBD is available for patients with epilepsy.

Possession and Growing

Medical Marijuana patients in Indiana will likely be able to have a caregiver

Under most cannabis laws, caregivers are included to allow patients who may be eligible for an MMJ Card but unable to apply for one themselves to get their medicine. For example, should the patient be a minor under 18, or if the patient needs assistance accessing medical cannabis, a caregiver can be assigned to complete the process on their behalf.

  1. 01

    In most instances, caregivers will either have to be aged 18 or 21 years of age or over in order to become a caregiver.

  2. 02

    In many states with a medical marijuana program, caregivers must also not have been charged with a drug or violence-related crime.


Indiana doesn’t recognise other state’s medical cards because medical cannabis and recreational cannabis is illegal in the state.

Reciprocity is one key benefit for medical marijuana users. Unlike recreational cannabis users, medical marijuana users with a medical marijuana card can travel to the states listed above and purchase the medical marijuana they require while they are out of state.
