Legally Grow

Cannabis laws are quickly changing and states are becoming more open to the idea of how many cannabis plants can people legally grow at home. Public sentiment has dramatically shifted over the past decade to supporting federal legalization, but while that may not be arriving any time soon, states are making the changes themselves.

Each state has slightly different cannabis laws, laws for hobby growers and laws for licensed medical growers. We put together a chart so you can quickly reference the legality and amount of plants you can legally grow at home. Check it out below.
