Idaho’s Crazy Marijuana Laws

We all know there are some weird laws in every state, but most of them are amusing. However, the marijuana and “paraphernalia” laws in Idaho are not the least bit amusing.
For instance, being present while someone else smokes weed can get you 3 months in jail. A marijuana pipe – without marijuana – can get you up to a year.
Selling pipes, bongs, grinders, and kief boxes in Idaho is a felony worthy of nine years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
Yet a man recently convicted in Idaho of beating his baby to death got 3.5 years. Three and a half years! If he would have just smoked weed around his baby instead of killing it he could have gotten 5 years. That’s right, he could have been sentenced to more time for smoking marijuana around his baby than he did for killing it.
And God forbid if he would have been selling bongs.
In other words, Idaho is not a place for cannabis users to visit, much less live in. If you need to drive through the state for some reason, drive around it.
