Legality of Cannabis by U.S. Jurisdiction

Cannabis in Indonesia is illegal. It has been banned since 1927, during the Dutch colonial period.[1] Offenders are subject to a minimum sentence of four years in prison (additional fines may apply) if caught possessing it.[2] Not only is Cannabis illegal, but derivatives of medical and recreational cannabis (hemp/CBD/THC/hashish/edibles) are considered just as bad as class 1 and 2 narcotics, regardless of how or why the cannabis is consumed.
