Iowa - Marijuana Laws

The use is so limited that many medical marijuana advocates do not consider Iowa and states like it that have these limited use exceptions for epileptic seizures to be considered as states that truly have legalized medical marijuana. Typically states that provide for medical marijuana for its residents are on the road to the total decriminalization of the drug. However, that is not true in Iowa.

For the rest of the state, marijuana possession and sale remain illegal in Iowa. Selling marijuana in the state is a felony, punishable by up to 50 years in prison depending on the amount of marijuana, the location of the sale, and the criminal history of the defendant.

However, Iowa's policies do reflect empathy toward people with drug problems and addictions. For example, an offender who is considered to be a chronic marijuana abuser may be ordered to rehabilitation. If the offender can successfully complete the program, the court can place him or her on probation.

The chart below lists the details of Iowa's marijuana statutes.
