Cultivation

Cannabis Grow Limit:
Not allowed

Cannabis Possession Limit:
Not allowed; only permitted in CBD form extracts for specifically ill medical patients. HB 1231, Known as “Harper Grace’s Law,” the bill only provides legal protection to patients diagnosed with a debilitating epileptic condition, and only if the CBD oil was either obtained from or tested by the National Center for Natural Products Research at the University of Mississippi and dispensed by the Department of Pharmacy Services at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. The law requires that CBD oil must have at least 15% CBD and no more than 0.5% THC. Patients with conditions other than a debilitating epileptic condition are not entitled to any legal protections, nor are there any legal protections for the possession and use of any other type of cannabis product.
