Marijuana legalization in Tennessee

Is marijuana legal in Tennessee?

Marijuana is illegal in Tennessee for recreational or medical use, and possession is a crime.

Since 2015, low-THC cannabis-infused oil is legal for a limited set of medical conditions when prescribed by a doctor.

The legalization of hemp in Tennessee means that it is more difficult to enforce prohibition, and the state’s Bureau of Investigation has agreed to stop testing marijuana to see if it has THC.
