Marijuana use and laws in Indiana have some of the strictest penalties in the United States. If you are caught with a single joint it is punishable with up to a $5,000 fine and a year in jail. However, it is legal if a person is a registered medicinal marijuana cardholder or a medicinal marijuana dispensary employee acting in the capacity of their job. The person must be qualified and approved by their physician that they have a debilitating medical condition and that marijuana will benefit them by easing their pain and illness.
