Here are the 2021 Marijuana Teform Bills Filed in the Indiana General Assembly


Indiana lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are once again bringing bills related to marijuana reform to the table this session.

Ten bills directly related to the legalization, decriminalization or regulation of marijuana in the state of Indiana have been introduced to the Indiana House and Senate in 2021.

At the time of this writing, all of the bills are alive and well. However, past years have shown that this kind of legislation typically doesn’t survive beyond a first reading and committee referral.

Here are the 10 bills to watch this session and where they are in the process.

Marijuana Legalization

Senate Bill 223 – Authored by Sen. Karen Tallian (D)

What it says: Makes it so that anyone who possesses more than two ounces of marijuana commits the offense of possession of marijuana.

Where it is: Referred to Committee on Corrections and Criminal Law

House Bill 1154 – Authored by Rep. Vanessa Summers (D)
