Can I Grow My Own Marijuana?

It is illegal to grow marijuana in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. There is also no such thing as medicinal marijuana in Kentucky. Although it may be legal in California, federal law as well as Kentucky and most other states, forbid the possession or growth of marijuana. As an aside, it is also illegal to travel out of California with your medical marijuana. Your prescription from California does you no good in Kentucky. Growing marijuana will likely land you in jail. Marijuana Cultivation is a class A misdemeanor if the person charged has fewer than 5 plants and it is a first offense. KRS 218A.1423 defines cultivation of marijuana and prescribes the penalties. If a person is growing 5 plants or more, it is a Class D felony for a first offense and class C felony for second or subsequent offense. Class A misdemeanors are punishable by up to 12 months in jail. Class D felonies are punishable by 1-5 years imprisonment and Class C felonies are punishable by 5-10 years in prison. If you have been chaged with possession, trafficking or cultivation of marijuana, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible.
