Marijuana growing laws have become a hot spot of contention. This is because there are a growing number of people who think that they have the right to grow marijuana for their personal use. The acceptance of marijuana by a variety of states has only added to the confusion between the legal officials and the people who are attempting to enjoy this drug. Since each state has different laws for the cultivation of marijuana, following the federal standard or calling the state specifically is the only way to ensure that one follows the law when handling marijuana.

Ever since California decided to legalize marijuana for the sake of medical use, there have been a number of other states following suite. These states each of their own interpretation of the laws about marijuana and they each enforce these laws differently. This includes the laws regarding the consumption of marijuana to the marijuana growing laws. It is important to find out from the state and the local government what the laws regarding the consumption and the growing of marijuana in that area is. Just because a state legalizes the use and growing of marijuana does not mean that the city or township tolerates the marijuana and this can lead to a lot of legal difficulties for both the government and the grower or user.

It is important to remember that even in the state of California the marijuana growing laws state that it is illegal to grow marijuana for person consumption. While this is not typically a law that is enforced for the average user who has no criminal background, it can be used to target those who have a history of crime. If the individual has no history, he may be able to simply plead guilty and attend a rehabilitation center, rather than doing crime. This is not the case for everyone, and the second chance offered is not one that should be taken lightly.

According to the federal government, the marijuana growing laws are much more clear. The laws simply and clearly state that anyone found growing marijuana is to be charged with felony cultivation. Not only does the law name those who actually grow the marijuana as a felony criminal, but the term cultivation also applies to those who dry it, process the marijuana and package it. According to the Federal government, there is no difference between the growing of marijuana with the intent to sell verses the growing of marijuana for personal use. These laws do apply to the states that have accepted marijuana growth and use as part of the daily law and actions in the state.
