Mississippi

  • Hemp-sourced CBD: LEGAL
  • Marijuana-sourced CBD for medical use only: ILLEGAL
  • Marijuana-sourced CBD for recreational use: ILLEGAL

Under Harper Grace’s Law (HB 1231, 2014), CBD products were legalized for patients with severe epilepsy as recommended by a licensed physician. The CBD product can contain no more than 0.5% THC, and must contain more than 15% CBD.

Mississippi does not have an industrial hemp pilot program. While marijuana is not legal, it has been decriminalized to an extent. For an individual’s first offense, possession of 30 grams or less is only punishable by a maximum $250 fine.
