Who doesn’t want to grow weed in Kentucky? The bluegrass state is the perfect location for growing the best marijuana from high-quality I Love Growing Marijuana seeds. There is only one problem though- growing less than five plants is a misdemeanor. So, if you are looking to enjoy a personal supply of high-quality THC, you will need to be private about how you grow it.
Keep it private
Kentucky has a history of keeping things private. During alcohol prohibition, Kentucky kept quality alcohol flowing despite the law. It’s easy to do the same during marijuana prohibition. It simply takes a little bit of know-how and self–restraint. By self-restraint, I mean resisting the urge to grow 20 plants just because you can.

Grow a few plants, especially if you are new. That way, you will be less likely to get caught, and if caught, you will be in less trouble. Remember, if you grow weed in Kentucky, it is only a misdemeanor if it is less than five plants.

I frequently tell home growers that they do not need to grow a lot of plants to have a good supply of marijuana. Kentucky is one of the states where you definitely do not want to do this. In addition to increasing your risk of getting caught, and increasing your charge from a misdemeanor to a felony, if you grow weed in Kentucky you are also required to pay a marijuana tax – but only if you have five plants.
Normally I don’t bother talking about taxes when it comes to growing marijuana, but Kentucky is a special situation. Their marijuana tax penalty is $2000/per plant if you are caught with 5 or more plants.
If you pay the tax prior to getting caught you only need to pay $1000/per plant. This is in addition to court fees and a maximum fine of $10,000. It is a bit excessive, especially since there is no tax for four plants, the maximum fine is $500 and it is only a misdemeanor.
I love growing marijuana, but with fines like that even I would stick to growing 4 plants (at a time). Besides, if I kept it small and they caught me, I’d most likely get probation the first time, and I could keep my money.
In December 2016, Kentucky introduced its Cannabis Compassion Act of 2017 to the Kentucky State Senate. The effort is endorsed by the Kentucky Nurse’s Association and supported by the governor.
The proposed law permits home growing of up to twelve plants. Marijuana would be approved for more than 25 conditions, including substance use disorder, ADD, and anxiety.
