For those of us in states where growing for personal use is or will soon become legal, I thought this might be an interesting topic. A close friend of mine who has long used cannabis medicinally recently told me growing up to six plants was now legal here, but when I looked it up, it turns out that it hasn’t yet gone into affect. It is going to be legal to grow 3 mature plants and 3 immature ones, or up to double that in households with more than one adult- such as married couples.
5 pounds will be the limit of the amount one can possess on their own property, but only an amount less than an ounce can be transported. It is pretty hard to know how much weed is on a plant in the ground, and with the best techniques and some strains, getting several pounds from one plant is entirely doable. Enforcement will certainly be complicated. I’m assuming they mean 5 pounds dried, but a lot of the weight of recently harvested plants will be leaves.
I’m glad I’m not in the underground pot growing business- you can be sure prices are going to drop precipitously. They already did when CA legalized recreational use and black market CA pot started flooding NY.
I’m no longer a pot smoker, but my 30 year old son keeps me well informed. I can’t wait to be able to grow some for him legally.
If you’d told me 50 years ago that it would take half a century for society to get to this point with this relatively benign drug, I would have asked for some of what you were smoking.
