A new bill passed that expanded medical marijuana for Louisiana in 2016, however Louisiana marijuana laws only allow for a recommendation instead of a prescription for non intoxicating cannabis oil if you have a qualifying condition.

Patients who have a marijuana recommendation from a physician must go to a licensed pharmacist, however at this time there are no pharmacies of the 10 that are allowed in the state of Louisiana that are open for business yet. Rules and regulations on medical marijuana have not been drafted.

This page will be updated as marijuana legalization in Louisiana evolves.
