As you probably know, there has been a growing trend to legalizing cannabis in recent years. Ever since California became the first state to legalize marijuana for medical use in 1996, other states have been lining up to follow in that progressive state’s footsteps.
Many states have made cannabis legal for medical use. Starting with the states of Washington and Colorado in 2012, others have followed to legalize it for recreation as well as health.
Where It’s Legal to Grow Cannabis
Whether you like to take a tiny toke now and then or have been thinking about getting into the burgeoning cannabis industry for fun and profit, you may have wondered what states is it legal to grow marijuana in?
Medical Use Only States
Another cold state on the other side of the continent, Vermont, takes the prize for the fewest legal pot plants, however. If you live there, you are permitted to grow just two “mature” plants, although four “immature” plants are permitted.
Massachusetts was the first state east of the Mississippi river to legalize recreational marijuana, and it’s also a great place to grow cannabis. It doesn’t get too hot, and it also doesn’t get too much rain. The winters are pretty cold, so you won’t be able to grow year-round like other places, but the rest of the year is perfect.
The best conditions for outdoor marijuana growing include places where it’s not too hot in the summer and also not too cold in the winter. That’s basically the entire West Coast of the United States. If you’re wondering why Oregon’s so renowned for those giant forests, it’s because it has great growing conditions for all plants, including marijuana.
