The Midwest is not a friendly place for marijuana laws, and Nebraska is no exception. Nebraska does have a decriminalization law on the books, but everything above and beyond that is harsh. Below are the current marijuana laws in Nebraska, courtesy of Nebraska NORML:

Decriminalized? — Yes. Possession of 1 oz or less (first offense) is a civil citation, punishable by a $300 fine and no jail time. A drug class may be required.

Possession of 1 oz or less (second offense) is a misdemeanor, punishable by 5 days in jail and a $400 fine.

Possession of 1 oz or less (subsequent offense) is a misdemeanor, punishable by 7 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Possession of 1 oz to 1 lb is a misdemeanor, punishable by 7 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Possession of more than 1 lb is a felony, punishable by 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Distributing or cultivating any amount is a felony, punishable by a mandatory sentence of 1 year in prison, but up to 20 years, and a $25,000 fine.

Distributing any amount to a minor is a felony, punishable by a mandatory sentence of 3 years in prison, but up to 20 years, and a $50,000 fine.
