Louisiana permits medical marijuana use with a verified medical card indicating a recommendation from a doctor. Patients must be at least 18 years old, and you can only buy up to 2.5 ounces every two weeks. In Louisiana, you can't grow weed with a medical card. However, there are no provisions for recreational marijuana use in the state for now. While possession of marijuana outside of medical purposes remains illegal, Louisiana has decriminalized its possession for small amounts. This means that if you have under a certain amount of weed on you, you won't get into legal trouble, but you still might face civil fines or drug treatment.
