I have smoked marijuana for most of my life, even before it was legal in some of the states.
I grew up in the 70s, when marijuana was no big deal.
Now I am part of a generation that can legally grow marijuana for personal use. I live in part of the country where marijuana use is legal for medical and recreational use. The laws vary from state-to-state, and some regions even have different laws. Still, the loose laws mean there are a lot of marijuana farmers in the valley. Some of those marijuana farmers are running legal operations, and some of them are not. If you are going to buy from a grow house, you better make sure they are licensed and permitted. If you purchase marijuana from an unlicensed farmer, you will be looking at a hefty fine and possible jail time. Some folks were busted in our area last month, when they were caught with an illegal grow operation. They were not permitted for commercial use. In our state, each person can grow a specific number of plants for personal use. More than that is considered commercial, and you must possess a permit for this type of marijuana farming operation. Folks in our area we’re running a very large operation, and a state police agent caught wind of the program. They set up a sting to buy 100 lb of Purple Haze. When the marijuana farmers showed up with the flower, the police came from everywhere and surrounded them. It was in the paper for days, and the local news station even had live feed from the farm.
