At the same time, however, there are currently efforts to push legislation for medical marijuana in the state, and just last year, hemp cultivation became commercially viable under state law. This might be an example of a state where legislature is still catching up to popular sentiment.

    Indiana laws


    Indiana offers conditional discharge in limited cases, that is, a first time misdemeanor offender might be given to the opportunity to see out an alternative sentence, like probation or community service. Also, if you have a small amount, you will be charged with a misdemeanor, rather than a felony.

    Hemp in Indiana


    In 2014, Indiana authorized state regulators to begin the process of licensing farmers to grow hemp commercially. In support, The American Farm Bureau recently endorsed it, ending the federal prohibition on industrial hemp.

    Now we all know that hemp is not marijuana, but its news like this that has me hopeful that growing marijuana in Indiana will soon be a reality. Currently Indiana has strict laws on growing, with a misdemeanor charge and jail time for growing up to 30 grams.


    That is why you need to know how to grow discretely so that you can harvest and smoke your weed in peace.

    The best way to grow marijuana in Indiana is by first starting with my Marijuana Grow Bible. It’s a free eBook that you can download from my site.  In it, you will find everything that you need to grow high-yielding marijuana that is healthy and potent.

    When you combine this knowledge with high-quality seeds found in my seeds store, you will be growing the best possible weed you can get your hands on. The best thing is- you’ll be growing it without getting caught.

    Indiana is a state with lots of possibilities. Even though there are strict penalties for growing marijuana here, it seems possible that the state will be the site of a burgeoning hemp industry.

    It also seems likely that legislature in the state might change to reflect the current cultural push for legalization, but for the time being, it’s best to use the tools I teach in the Marijuana Grow Bible, grow only as much as you need, and wait it out until full legalization becomes a reality.

        1. What makes the war heads in indiana believe they have the right to take away a religion based on cannabis. Jesus used kanehbos the Septuagint teaches, so why does indiana practice unconstitutional high treason. Indiana’s employment offices are not even hardly used anymore, due to their uselessness.
          Indiana shows that warring against HOLY scriptures makes them safe?
