Growing Marijuana in Ohio

Growing Marijuana in Ohio

It may not be legal to smoke weed in Ohio, but did you know that there is no risk of jail time for growing small of amounts of marijuana? Thanks to decriminalization, possession of less than 100 grams is only a misdemeanor with a $150 fine. Even more, this goes for growing too. Cultivation is considered the same as possession. What this law means is, you could grow a very small amount of marijuana in Ohio and only face a small fine. It doesn’t even go on your record.

Medical marijuana

While Ohio has decriminalized marijuana, it has not made it legal- even for medicinal purposes. Ohio does not have a medical marijuana program, so those who are looking to medicate should consider growing their own. Without legalized marijuana in Ohio, finding reliable strains of medicinal herb may be difficult for Ohio patients. This is not only because there are no dispensaries; it is also because the law does not allow people to grow large gardens for serving patients. Weed sellers are forced to traffic marijuana from other places or risk growing large very risky grows.

Additionally, medical marijuana patients are better able to manage their results when they choose their own strains and control the grow environment. Marijuana comes in many varieties, and not every strain will have the same effect.  Purchasing high –quality medical marijuana seeds that you choose from our store and maintaining an all-natural grow room is the best way to get optimal therapy from your marijuana.

Weed growing in Ohio is not just optimal for the patient. Anyone who enjoys getting high every once in a while can benefit from the state’s decriminalized weed policy. With a 100 gram limit, anyone can grow a decent amount of weed without worrying about getting arrested.  By purchasing a few high yielding plants, the Ohio home weed grower, will have enough to share.

Speaking of sharing, if you’d like to share some of your harvest, but are concerned about being called a drug dealer, don’t be- the occasional weed share in Ohio is also decriminalized . A gift of 20 grams or less is a misdemeanor of $150 if caught. So, remember, keep it small and keep it free.
