Louisiana Criminal Laws

A wide range of crimes are covered under Louisiana’s criminal laws. These crimes range from white-collar crimes such as tax evasion and securities fraud to more severe felonies such as assault and murder. In most states, criminal laws define illegal behavior that is punished by penalties such as imprisonment and fines, and this legislation tends to reflect the social norms of the state in which they are enacted. Despite the fact that several states have recently legalized recreational marijuana usage, the Bayou State still prohibits the possession of marijuana, even for medical purposes.
