Growing Cannabis Seeds in America

Across the USA the laws on possession and growing cannabis seeds are changing, allowing more people to cultivate and use the plant for both recreational and medical purposes.

From Alaska to Florida, California to Rhode Island, many states are relaxing the laws and subsequent penalties associated with growing cannabis, allowing their residents the freedom to choose whether or not to grow a selected number of plants.


Although growing cannabis seeds in the USA remains a federal offence, changes in state laws allow for limited cultivation and possession across large parts of the USA.


Not all states are as liberal and forward thinking however, there are still many states that prohibit both the cultivation and possession of cannabis for either recreational, or medical use.



The differences between states over the possession and growing cannabis seeds in the USA means that while some parts of the country allow their residents to use cannabis for medical or recreational purposes, other states ban it’s use and cultivation completely.


States where cannabis has been legalized still have permitted limits and maximum numbers of plants you can grow, but instead of criminalizing its residents, it allows for its use and collects the taxes from its cultivation and subsequent resale. Areas that prohibit growing cannabis seeds have no income from its taxation, instead choosing to incarcerate its residents for cultivating and possessing cannabis, costing the state money, rather than raising it.


Whether it’s legal, available for registered medical cannabis patients only, or completely illegal, every state has its own laws on growing cannabis seeds in the USA and understanding them, and the punishments involved for breaking them, is vital before you make any decisions or plans for growing marijuana this season.
