One of the most anticipated parts of marijuana legalization for me was the thought of someday growing my own cannabis. I wanted to have the freedom to finally have a few plants at home so I could afford the medicine I need for my physical and mental health problems. It’s really expensive in some states when you combine both state and city taxes. I see grams of hash rosin going for $120 in some places out west where the taxes are absolutely ridiculous compared to other cities and states. When you factor in these roadblocks, you can imagine why some of us would be adamant about growing our own medicine when it’s literally a plant that can be harvested from seeds. Unfortunately, despite living in a state with legal medical cannabis dispensaries, we aren’t allowed to grow our own marijuana here. If you’re caught with just a single marijuana plant, you could face jail time and the risk of losing your medical marijuana card. It’s ridiculous because it’s allowed in lots of states that have medical marijuana and not recreational cannabis. I think these cannabis companies have a cartel system going where they all benefit from the lack of competition, even if that competition is coming from the customers themselves. If I could just have two plants maximum, that would supplement my existing cannabis expenses and help me afford to medicate every month in a reasonable way. With all of the internet guides these days, it has never been easier to learn the art of growing marijuana. There are also new strains being developed all of the time, many of which are bred to be easier to grow from the outset.
