The Latest News Regarding Nebraska’s
Cannabis Opportunities

Though medical and recreational marijuana remain illegal in Nebraska, the state has made some progressive moves in marijuana legislation. Nebraska is one of the 26 states that has decriminalized first-time possession of small amounts of marijuana. Here’s a look at the decriminalization legislation in Nebraska:

  • First offenders found in possession of one ounce serve no jail time and pay up to $300 in fines. 
  • Second offenders found in possession of one ounce or less receive a misdemeanor, serve up to five days of jail time, and pay up to $500 in fines.
  • Third offenders found in possession of one ounce or less receive a misdemeanor, serve up to seven days of jail time, and pay up to $500 in fines.

Additionally, proponents of medical marijuana legalization are making their voices heard in the state. Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana, a pro-legalization political committee, submitted over 182,000 voter signatures in support of medical marijuana to the secretary of state in July. You can learn more about the group’s medical marijuana legalization efforts by checking out their website.

The History of
Cannabis IN Nebraska

Nebraska’s cannabis history began in 1887 when hemp was cultivated on a farm in the state by men from Champaign, Illinois. Most of the hemp was used commercially to make twine. However, the farm was shut down in 1910, and Nebraska made all forms of marijuana illegal in 1927 in step with the country’s overall prohibition efforts. 

Though marijuana remains illegal in Nebraska today, there is clear public interest in medical legalization. The efforts of the Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana political committee yielded enough signatures to bring attention to the issue, and their website helps those in support of the measure to register to vote and donate to the cause.
