Outdoor Growing

Many parts of Tennessee are used for agricultural purposes. In fact, Tennessee is a leading provider of America’s tobacco industry.

Growing plants for industry is so common in Tennessee that the state is considering growing another form of cannabis, hemp, as an industry. So don’t be surprised if you see some marijuana-looking plants in this state.

Medical Marijuana

It may be a little surprise that Tennessee does not have a medical marijuana program, but it has adopted a medical CBD program.

In case you are not familiar with it, the medical CBD program lets patients use non-THC cannabis oil for treating seizures.

It is a small step toward medical legalization that, unfortunately, removes the marijuana plant from the solution.

While it doesn’t help make it easier to grow weed in Tennessee, it does show that the state is at least willing to consider the benefits of this beautiful plant.
