Louisiana Governor Signs Bills To Decriminalize Marijuana Paraphernalia And Regulate Hemp Products

HB 165 was signed into law

The Republican governor of Louisiana has signed bills to decriminalize marijuana paraphernalia and enact restrictions on the hemp market.

On the same day that Gov. Jeff Landry (R) vetoed a measure that would have allowed him and future governors to issue pardons for people with past cannabis convictions, he gave final approval to the paraphernalia decriminalization proposal from Rep. Delisha Boyd (D).

He also signed off on legislation to enact regulations for hemp products. As introduced, the bill would have imposed an outright ban, but it was amended to instead tighten regulations, including by lowering the amount of THC that can be in consumable hemp products and prevent them from being sold at gas stations.
