Marijuana legalization in Nebraska

Is marijuana legal in Nebraska?

Marijuana is illegal for any purpose in Nebraska. Both recreational and medical marijuana are illegal in Nebraska.

Recent attempts to pass Medical Marijuana legislation failed, and Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts has argued against legalization, calling marijuana “a dangerous drug.”

Currently, activists are gathering signatures for a ballot measure to appear in November 2020 to legalize recreational marijuana in Nebraska. The deadline to submit signatures is July 2, 2020.

Both the “Cannabis Initiative Petition” and the “Medical Cannabis Petitionare circulating for the 2020 elections.
