Where Could You Start a Legal Marijuana Growing Business?

In the United States, legal marijuana growing is possible in 15 states with medical marijuana laws. However, do note that growing marijuana for recreational purposes is still illegal all over the US. There is a political movement however, that seeks to change that and if you want to do your part, simply participate in the local chapter of marijuana advocacy groups.

Before you start looking for marijuana seeds to plant, be sure that you do some research and grab a copy of your State’s laws regarding the matter. The 15 states which allow medical marijuana are Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, DC, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington. Growers of medical marijuana are called care-givers and can only give the marijuana to a limited number of people. The average limitation on the number of marijuana plants ranges from 6 to 12 mature plants. Some states have some exemptions to these and some even allow the patients themselves to grow their own marijuana.

Although not necessarily seen as a business, critics point out that that is how they are being operated nowadays. In California for example, these marijuana dispensaries are often themed to make themselves look more attractive. They do so by using neon sign and themes that often have similarities with popular fast food chains. If you do a search on Google, you will even find a marijuana dispensary that looks exactly like a KFC store. Some are even themed like a coffee shop and it wouldn’t be surprising to know that the number of marijuana dispensaries in California alone are now more than the number of McDonalds and Starbucks outlets in the state.

Always remember that when you decide to treat legal marijuana growing as a business, to get to know all the pertinent legislation concerning the matter.
