marijuana billIf Indiana Senate Bill 347 Is Ever Passed, It Would Decriminalize Possession Of Up To Three Ounces Of Marijuana

Synopsis: Marijuana offenses. Provides that operating a vehicle with an inactive metabolite of marijuana, hashish, or hash oil in one’s body does not violate the impaired driving laws. Makes possession of less than three ounces of marijuana a Class C infraction. Makes possession of more than three ounces of marijuana a Class B misdemeanor, and makes the offense a Class A misdemeanor if the person has two or more prior convictions involving marijuana in the past five years. Requires a court to suspend a sentence imposed for possession of marijuana if the person does not have a previous conviction involving marijuana in the past five years, and requires a court to defer a sentence if the person pleads guilty to misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Makes the sale or delivery of more than three ounces of marijuana a Class A misdemeanor, and makes the offense a Class D or Class C felony under certain circumstances. Provides a defense if a person who delivers under ten pounds of marijuana does so for no consideration. Makes the public use or display of marijuana a Class B misdemeanor, and makes the offense a Class A misdemeanor if the person has two or more prior convictions for an offense involving marijuana in the past five years. Reduces the penalty for maintaining a common nuisance to a Class A misdemeanor if the only unlawful controlled substances involved were marijuana, hashish, or hash oil.
