    Indiana Marijuana Law Reform

    I was curious to know if anyone had the slightest idea of when the laws of marijuana in Indiana will turn the tide? Right now the laws in Indiana are harsh as hell, one year in jail for a possession of less than 30 grams. I am a strong advocate for marijuana reform in Indiana and currently a college student, my dream is to open a medical marijuana dispensary in the Indianapolis area to help patients who prefer a professional and safe enviroment to purchase high quality medical marijuana as a means of treatment or therapy. I have already started up a detailed business plan for when medical marijuana is legal in the Naptown. I was wondering if anyone had any idea when marijuana will be legal in Indiana? and If anyone is interested in teaming up and discuss opening a dispensary in Indiana when laws here change, feel free to post on this thread.

    don't hold your breath...

    MERRILLVILLE, Ind. — State lawmakers will soon begin studying whether Indiana should amend its drug laws to decriminalize marijuana, create a medical marijuana program or make other changes.

    The Post-Tribune of Merrillville reports that the General Assembly's criminal law and sentencing policy study committee will examine different angles of the marijuana issue. The committee's first meeting is next week, though it's not clear whether marijuana laws will be discussed then or during future meetings.
    State Sen. Karen Tallian, D-Ogden Dunes, pushed for the study committee and says Indiana has “draconian” marijuana laws.
    “One day, I watched three young kids plead cases on possession of small amounts,” Tallian said. “I thought, `Why are we spending all of the time and money to do this?' Frankly, I put marijuana in the same category as alcohol.”
    Medical marijuana is available in 16 states and the District of Columbia, and 13 states have eliminated certain penalties for small amounts of marijuana.
    Tallian said she hopes to arrange for people to speak at the meeting when the marijuana study is on the agenda.
    “I've got testimony from all different groups,” she said. “They keep calling me wondering when it's going to be. I had them lined up when the bill was in the Senate — medical people, criminal defense attorneys, prosecutors, law enforcement. There are a wide range of people interested in the topic.”
    Among the state lawmakers who supported the idea of creating a study committee to examine the issue was Republican Rep. Tom Knollman of Liberty, who has multiple sclerosis. Knollman told lawmakers during the legislative session this year that he wished he could legally try the drug to see if it relieves his pain.
    Knollman said at the time that he's among the most conservative of state legislators, but hopes he can be a law-abiding citizen and use one of God's plants.

    hello. i would be happy to come work in your dispensary. i have no funds to help you get past the licensing bribe, when enacted. laws which are on the books not wanted by the changing populace are usually easily overturned. Indiana may be one of those states where the regulators turn the screws so hard on corn farmers, that they need to supplement their income with an illegal, untraceable, unseen cash crop growing in their corn fields; so they can meet regulations and remain solvent. plenty of good American Republican opposition there. it's the criminals that are for prohibition. get the prohibitionists to see one step in breaking the federal stranglehold on their livelihood would be to allow them to grow in plain sight, and sell to a dispensary, or rope factory, or biofuel plant...
