Medicinal products are legal in US Federal Laws.

Amount of Cannabis Allowed

The use, sale, and possession of Cannabis over 0.3% THC in the United States is illegal under the Federal Law. As a Schedule I drug under the federal Controlled Substances Act of 1970 cannabis over 0.3% THC (legal term marijuana ) is considered to have "no accepted medical use" and have a high potential for abuse and physical or psychological dependence. Cannabis use is illegal for any reason, with the exception of FDA-approved research programs. Individual states have enacted legislation permitting exemptions for various uses, mainly for medical and industrial use but also including recreational use.



 

Conditions To Qualify for a Medicinal License

Doctors may not "prescribe" cannabis for medical use under federal law, though they can "recommend" its use under the First Amendment.



The federal government regulates drugs through the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (21 U.S.C. § 811), which does not recognize the difference between medical and recreational use of cannabis.

Paraphernalia Laws

What Is Drug Paraphernalia?



The term drug paraphernalia refers to any equipment that is used to produce, conceal, and consume illicit drugs. It includes but is not limited to items such as bongs, roach clips, miniature spoons, and various types of pipes. Under federal law the term drug paraphernalia means “any equipment, product or material of any kind which is primarily intended or designed for use in manufacturing, compounding, converting, concealing, producing,

processing, preparing, injecting, ingesting, inhaling, or otherwise introducing into the human body a controlled substance.”



Drug paraphernalia can be divided into two main categories:



- those used to distribute drugs and

- those used to ingest drugs.



This distinction can be important for someone who is facing drug paraphernalia charges, especially since things like ordinary household items such as scales or spoons can be also used in the distribution or consumption of illegal drugs.



Is Drug Paraphernalia Illegal?



Yes, drug paraphernalia are illegal. The drug paraphernalia statute, U.S. Code Title 21 Section 863, makes it “unlawful for any person to sell or offer for sale drug paraphernalia; to use the mails or any other facility of interstate commerce to transport drug paraphernalia; or to import or export drug paraphernalia.”



Federal Penalties for Drug Paraphernalia Convictions



If someone has been convicted on drug paraphernalia charges, the penalties tend to be much less than for convictions for possessing or distributing drugs. Here, too, the penalties imposed vary depending on whether federal law applies or if the conviction was under a state law. A federal conviction for drug paraphernalia can carry a prison sentence of up to three years in addition to a fine.
