Nebraska is one of 14 states that have decriminalized marijuana possession. For a first offense possession up to an ounce is considered to be a civil infraction with a $300 fine and a drug education course with a citation and not an arrest. For a second up to an ounce is a $400 fine and up to five days in jail, a third offense is a week in jail and a $500 fine. Second and third offense possessions are misdemeanors and are citable and a cause for arrest. Marijuana use for medical reasons is still illegal but there are many who are advocating to legalize it for the terminally ill and those suffering from severe chronic pain.
