Cannabis laws in Pittsburgh
Marijuana is illegal both federally in the United States as well in the state of Pennsylvania. However, the city of Pittsburgh decriminalized the personal possession of cannabis and hash in 2015. Currently carrying up to 30 grams of cannabis or 8 grams of hashish is treated as a misdemeanor and not a crime. What this means is that if you have a little bit of weed on you, you can expect to get a fine of up to 100$. This being said the odds are that you will not get in any trouble for a little bit of weed on you, but it does depend on the policeman. You probably should also avoid smoking in public places.
Medicinal marijuana has been legal in Pennsylvania since 2016.
