    Growing Legally. Where you at, what are your laws & growing strategy?

    SoOrbudgal got me thinking the other day, when she mentioned we were lucky to grow 12 plants here in Michigan. What are your laws and how do you plan your grows within the law?

    With a 12 plant limit, I have 4 plants dedicated to a continuous grow, (seed/early veg, late veg, early flower, late flower). Interval time is based on flowering time of the maturing plants.

    First stage is in the nursery box with other plants; second stage I can either fit 4, 2.5-gallon pots or one 15-gallon pot -- this is where I decide to grow 1 large plant, or 4 smaller ones, then on to the 2'x4' box for early and late flowering.

    That gives me enough for personal use, and gifting to my friends.

    The other 8 plants I'm allowed I plan to use for breeding and experimenting, like the 2020 cup challenge.

    At the moment I have a very sticky Amnesia Trance (AMS) that's about 6/10 weeks into flowering that is by itself (with a divider to contain heat/light) in the 2x4 box, a manifolded White Widow Extreme (AMS), that's about 10-14 days away from flipping in the late-veg box. Then a White Widow and a Big Bud (AMS) in the nursery, both of which are for the contest. Over in the breeder box I have three female Wide Widow Extreme plants from non-feminized seed, where I thought I'd get at least one male but I didn't so now one will get the silver treatment.

    I bought the Big Bud for the cup challenge, since that looked like a beauty contest. They grow real short, so I'm thinking about taking the 4 remaining seeds, growing to maturity in the 2.5-gallon, not doing any training and see if I get 4 giant colas. That would give me 11 plants in the system.

    How does your garden grow?

    Dayum!!!! 12? & I thought Washington was lucky to get 6. Like Budgal said- we get 4 here but they do recognize perpetual harvest so we can have clones, mothers & seedlings in the grow tent while 4 flower in the bud tent . Plus they're looking for the place with 20-50 full sized plants, not the couple with 2 extra in case some are males.

        When the local LEO walked through my gorilla patch, he did not find it, he was looking down pushing the 20 foot tall plants out of the way,,,, I luv being legal, the LEO is so not interested, "thats legal" was the only comment, no asking for to see the permit, no counting plants. The times they are a changing!

      #4
      I can have 6+6, 6 in veg and 6 in flower, and mothers, not as many as when I did the gorilla thing, but I can tend it and get more from it.
      My goal is to grow enuf through the summer to hold me all year, with indoor being a backup. I have some bagssed from CA I think growing now, indica dominant, one of these will be my first mother (learn on the cheap). A Mazar is also up and will be the second mother, seeds and clones coming! I play with breeding, and make my own seeds and strains (ok been a while). from time to time.
      I also want to trade clones with other Okies once I get mine going, I am near Tulsa/Sapulpa area
      Recreational is up for signatures,,,

        Also the GF can have 6+6, as I read it any card holder in the residence,,,

      #5
      Here in Colorado we're allowed 6 per person in each household, 3 in flower 3 in veg. Or if you have your medical card your doctor can allow you more. Normal limit is 12 per household. Considering I live alone I'm a little over with 33 total going right now (11 in flower, 18 in veg, and 4 seedlings recently planted). Have a couple years before I can hopefully get a MED badge and make it legal and grow for the local dispensaries. I'm trying to use the time to perfect my techniques and figure out what works best for me for yield and quality. I live in a small town but we're supposed to be getting a couple recreational dispensaries soon and they will need local growers because they're supposed to get at least 70% of their flower from local growers. Hoping to be able to make the cut there, would be an awesome "job" I think.

        Here in MA. the recreational limits are 6 per Adult with a household max of 12. So along with my wife we are allowed 12 plants. I run a 2 tent perpetual setup with 4 plants in each tent. When I take cutting things get a little grey. I generally take 12-18 cuttings at a time and I’ll weed them down to the 4 I want to use for the next run. Technically I could have 26 plants at certain times depending on how the state wants to classify the term “plant”. Our recreational laws don’t specifically define what a plant is so I generally try to count anything with roots. Needless to say, I try to make my selections quickly so I can cull the others. With that being said, I’m not giving the authorities any other reasons to knock on my door so they haven’t to this point.
        Failure is an opportunity for improvement!!

          Before becoming head of the Liberal Party of Canada, Trudeau was a ....wait for it....part-time high school drama teacher.
          His father was a prime minister and they had groomed Justin’s younger brother, Michel, to go into politics. That came to a end when he was killed in an avalanche in 1998 that swept his body all the way down a mountain into a lake. His body was never found.

        I'm Ms., Harper Graces law was passed, for certain patients with debilitating diseases, but not the first patient has ever received any. And never will. The politicians in this state talk a big game, but that's all they do, Ms. was one of the first states to decriminalize mj, back in the Carter years, but that didn't do sh-t, you get caught with a joint, you going to jail, end of story.
        People in legal states don't know how lucky they are, well I hope they do.

          And yet the only federally authorized marijuana cultivation facility is at the University of Mississippi, where the plants they grow and research are chemically closer to hemp than marijuana. The head of the facility says he can't understand why people would want marijuana containing more than 8% THC! 2020 my Happy Ass, more like 1920.

          quirk yes! Been telling people this for years. The federal government has grown, stashed, and sold weed there since the 90’s.

          They been growing MJ, at Ole Miss, since the early 70s, they first had it surrounded by an electric fence, lol, but alot still got ripped off by students using, rods an reels with one ounce snag treble hooks,
          The Indian who runs it is a sad story, all by himself. He is not helping anything at all. But this is at Oxford, Ms.
          The real study is going on at UMMC, in Jackson, my Dr. Is evolved in that study, I showed him some pictures from my phone, and he said MJane was a gift from God.I might not should say this, but I've given him plenty of bud.

        If a recreational user wants to grow 4 plants that we are allowed to grow - first have to register your household to have 4 plants - government sends you a registration number - government then gives you a registration number that you use to obtain 4 seeds from a dispensary of their choice - then you can grow.

        A growers household is allowed a certain amount of grams (not really sure, kinda lost interest in reading the regulations) to have in the house at one time. So how are they going to know how many grams one has? Well, you registered your household with the government - the law says they can knock on your door and can enter to check and see how much dried cannabis is on hand. Reason enough for me to NOT register my household for growing.

        Being registered for medical marijuana is totally different. But the local police still have to check out your household before you get a grow permit.

        Even though I'm retired from working for the federal government - I know how they operate and I don't trust them one bit.

          Under the recreational growing laws a household can only have 4 plants, but is not limited to how much weed they can keep in storage. (They also have goofy calculations for concentrates which I have yet to understand)

          I am a registered Health Canada grower, for personal medical, that is entitled to grow 25 plants for my Rx (plus my 4 recreational plants). I’m only allowed to store 2.5 kg (5 lbs) of weed...but recreational growers are unlimited?!

          I would be interested to see how that would play out in court if I was to have 10kg of weed in storage. Which weed is Rx? Which weed is Rec?

          Yep. 4 adult plants in Oregon. 6 for med patients. & we DON'T get to double that for each adult household occupant. 1oz on your person & I believe it's an lb of dried flower on hand. I dont use concentrates so your guess is as good as mine there.

        SoCal, baby. Liberal for the most part but cities are having a hard time figuring out what a 'legal' pot shop is and isn't. I can grow 6 unless I pay for some sort of license thingamajig to grow 25 or pay more and grow 125.

          Which is why our family counts on the outdoor to produce the quality and quantity. Let's hope this summer will be better growing. I'm not shutting the tent down till it's hellish hot indoors this spring/summer.

        #13
        Cali laws go like this for non-commercial ... standard recreational = 6 indoor plants per household. Medical can not exceed 100 square foot of canopy (no plant count, just square area of plant coverage). Outdoor gardens legality depends on county. Some allow some don’t. Some allow a few outdoors but must be Registered with the county first.

          YYCannabis I totally agree about height limit: it's absurd and makes them look totally ignorant about what they're doing. They need to read GWE and catch up to the rest of us.

        Man, 100 sq.ft. of canopy would be sweet.
