Sensi: Colorado Legislation Targets Marijuana Plants

Posted: March 9, 2017 at 6:25 am by , in Featured, Marijuana News

Leland Rucker, Sensi magazine senior editor takes a look at a bill in the Colorado state house that would limit the number of marijuana plants that can be grown at home.

On Monday March 6th, a House committee voted 11-2 to curb the number of plants that can be grown at home to a maximum of 12 plants per residential property. Right now medical marijuana patients can grow up to 99 plants.

The bill is aimed at stopping diversion of legal marijuana to the illegal market, but medical marijuana patients say they will be impacted and may not be able to grow the plants that they need.
