Can I Grow My Own Medical Marijuana?

Most states with laws permitting the use of medical marijuana also allow patients and/or their caregivers to cultivate their own marijuana plants. As of June 2010, patients and caregivers can cultivate marijuana for medical purposes in 13 of the 14 medical marijuana states.

In Alaska, medical marijuana users may cultivate no more than six marijuana plants, of which no more than three may be mature. California allows medical marijuana users to cultivate six mature (or 12 immature) marijuana plants at a time. In Colorado, medical marijuana users may cultivate up to six marijuana plants, with three or fewer being mature, flowering plants that are producing a usable form of marijuana.

Home cultivation of medical marijuana is not allowed in New Jersey and a special license is required to do so in New Mexico.
