I've been thinking about growing marijuana for couple of months now. been doing all the research and the reading in the mean time. this is a great website and it always has the answers to all my questions but before i start growing i want to know all the drug laws. i know no one wants to talk about getting caught and dealing with the police but still its always good to know all the proper laws
I did some research on my own and came up with a little something:
Canadian Liberal Bill to Reform Marijuana Laws in Canada - Marijuana Reform in Canada
I wanna hear from people here on cannabis about canadian laws on marijuana production. is it a good idea to see a drug lawyer to educate myself more on this subject??Penalties for Growing Marijuana
At the time of introduction of the Marijuana Reform Bill in 2004, production of marijuana in Canada was punishable by up to seven years imprisonment. The Marijuana Reform Bill creates different offences depending on the size of the marijuana growing operation.
The penalties for growing marijuana under the Marijuana Reform Bill would be
for growing one to three plants, a fine of up to $5000 and/or 12 months in jail
for growing four to 25 plants, a fine of up to $25,000 and/or 18 months in jail, or if pursued by indictment, five years less a day imprisonment
for growing 26 to 50 plants, a sentence of up to ten years
for growing more than 50 plants, the sentence could be up to 14 years.
Personally i dont have any criminal record so i'm sure i will get a "soft" punishment if i get caught. I dont mind paying fines or whatever but its just the thought of doing jail time that gets to me
I wanna know what i can do or how many plants can i have at one time so even if i do get caught, i will not be looking at any jail time.
It would be nice if you can share your personal experiences on this subject or anything that would help me. i know some people here are extremely knowledgeable when it comes to marijuana. hey people your help is needed right now
