How to Grow Marijuana Legally
If you want to know how to grow marijuana legally then you must know the law in your state. First of all, federal law, meaning the law that encompasses the entire United States of America states that transportation, distribution and sales of marijuana is illegal. Now there might be confusion here as to how you can grow marijuana legally if the national government forbids it. The explanation would bring you to the grass roots movement down to the city level and to the State level. For instance, in the year 2000, Colorado passed a law that allows for medicinal usage in controlled quantities. This means that for as long as the use is medicinal and as long as the method and means have passed through the scrutiny of the local government, you will be able to grow marijuana, again, in controlled quantities.
Growers of medical marijuana are also known as caregivers in that they have to grow for specific patient and have to grow them in limited quantities. Thus, they not only know how to grow marijuana legally, they also know how to sell its derivative parts legally. This means that they have to undergo a rigorous screening process as well as comply with licensing requirements as set forth by the Colorado State Government Department of Public Health and Environment. Aside from that, the people who would buy from these marijuana dispensaries also have to comply with the law by procuring a medical marijuana registry ID card. One of the requirements of this card is a medical doctor’s prescription recommending the use of medical marijuana.
To be sure that you are not violating any law, consult a legal professional or a medicinal marijuana advocacy group in your area to know the details surrounding the business aspects of this. Medicinal marijuana growing is a sunshine industry and it would be interesting to see how it would fare out in the near future.
