Rules for Growing Marijuana in the United States Varies from State to State
Growing your own marijuana is great for those who are in areas that allow it to be home grown but it is important to do some homework before starting. The free book called the ‘Marijuana Grow Bible’ will give you all the basics you need to get started. Folks interested in growing should familiarize themselves with their local laws before getting involved. Below is a look at the state laws in the US as of October 2019. We’ll take a look at the laws in Canada and Europe too, soon. It seems weird to many of us that there could be laws prohibiting growing a plant, but it is what it is at this point in time. Many states in the US allow people to grow weed for their own use in limited amounts, but of course the federal laws in the US are a different story. The 2018 Farm Bill changed the status of growing hemp but not marijuana containing THC.
So, here is a sampling of the state-by-state laws concerning growing marijuana as of October 2019 with the disclaimer that laws are changing and before growing, people should consult the current laws in their state:
