Marijuana use in Louisiana is still illegal but Louisiana just passed the new House Bill 103 on May 29, 2013 that will reduce marijuana possession penalties for second and subsequent offenses. As for medical marijuana use, they are trying to get the bill amended because marijuana offers medical benefits to many illnesses, diseases and those who live with unbearable pain.
Marijuana rehab and treatment centers in Louisiana will tell you that you are not responsible for your behaviors and consequences and then label you as sick or as an addict. At a non-12 step and non treatment program they will not label you, they will teach you that you are in control and in charge of your life.
Many Louisiana Marijuana treatment centers will make you believe that the only solution to your problems is in fact Marijuana treatment. This is not true. People overcome Marijuana every day without treatment and without addiction professionals dictating how their lives should be lived.
