Effective July 1, 2021, adults 21 and over can grow up to four (4) marijuana plants per household.
This law only permits 4 plants to be grown at a main place of residence and permits 4 marijuana plants to be grown per household, not per person living in the home.
There are additional requirements for home growers of marijuana plants including:
- Ensuring that no plant is visible to the public;
- Taking precautions to prevent unauthorized access to the marijuana plants by persons younger than 21 years of age; and
- Attaching to each plant a legible tag that includes the person’s name, driver’s license or ID number, and a notation that the cannabis plant is being grown for personal use as authorized by law.
Effective July 1, it will be illegal to grow more than 4 plants, to sell or distribute home grown marijuana, or to use home grown marijuana to create marijuana concentrate.
If you or a loved one is charged with a marijuana or other drug-related offense, contact our office for a free consultation.
