Can I grow Marijuana in Canada?

 With Trudeau's freeing of the leaf (no, not the maple leaf!), Canadians across all provinces and territories have opened up about their responsible love for this medically assistive plant.  The new legalization of marijuana in Canada has also got many wondering, "will I get in trouble if I grow marijuana at home?"  Who can blame you for asking this question when pot prices sky rocket at high-demand dispensaries! 

Well, we've got good news for you: according to , you can legally grow four marijuana plants at home as long as you don't sell your supply!  Do keep in mind that this is by no means a flat rule, and that there are several restrictions added on by each province to detail who can grow and how. 

Here's the Ontario law on growing your own marijuana (form

"You may grow up to four cannabis plants per residence (not per person) if:

  • you are 19 years of age and older

  • it is only for your personal use

  • the starting material was purchased from the Ontario Cannabis Store or an authorized retail store

  • it is not forbidden by your lease agreement or condo rules..."

In summary, if you are over 19, chances are you can safely get your green thumb "greener" in most provinces, however, be sure to look up any extra conditions and use responsibly!
