Hearing that JBE will indeed sign into law HB 652 which means <14 grams of weed is a 100$ fine and it cannot escalate from there.

Also found that by law prior to 6/4/21 La had to use the federal schedules for drugs. SB 107 which became act 96 and is now law effective 6/4/21 changes that. My guess is that a legal mind could clarify, but it would seem that decriminalization in La would have been illegal by law prior to that change therefore any attempts would have been challenged in courts.


Present law provides that the secretary of the La. Dept. of Health shall add a substance to the schedules as a controlled dangerous substance if it is classified as a controlled dangerous substance by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) or found to have a high potential for abuse. Present law further provides that the secretarymaytransfer a controlled substance from one schedule to another schedule upon the basis of a finding that the characteristics of the controlled substance are such that under the criteria in present law the controlled substances should be transferred or that a transfer of any substance should be made in order to conform with the schedule in which the drug is placed by the DEA. Proposed law adds authority for the secretary to delete any drug or other substance from the schedules provided in present law if the drug or other substance is no longer classified as a controlled dangerous substance by the DEA. Effective upon signature of the governor or lapse of time for gubernatorial action.
