Earlier this month, we reported that home sellers may be required to tell the buyer about marijuana grows, no matter how small.

“Few topics of discussion generated stronger views than the question of whether to allow Canadians to grow cannabis in their homes for their own consumption,” according to the federal commission report released Tuesday.

The commission stopped short of requiring home producers to get licences (as home producers of legal medical marijuana now do) but noted that municipalities may want to restrict them.

“In Oregon, they’re like trees,” Rosy Mondin of the Cannabis Trade Alliance of Canada told Global News in November. ‘The diameters of the trunks are quite amazing.”

It’s not surprising. Canadians have decades of experience with illegal grow operations involving hundreds of plants. In some cases the grow ops wrecked houses to the point where they had to be torn down.

Canadians who want to grow their own pot should only be allowed to harvest four small plants at home, according to experts studying how to legalize marijuana.
