The thin line between legal and illegal.

Everyone here knows that I love to garden. And I pride myself that my garden is not made out of plants bought in a nursery, but I beg for cuttings, steal seeds and exchange plants. My cacti´s offspring are in many gardens of my friends and family. Some time ago an occational acquaintance gave me a couple of little round seeds. I asked what they were and she told me they were marihuana seeds. The seeds did not burn my hands so I brought them home. In my country it is legal to use marihuana for health. I don´t exactly know what that means as I did not need any help of meds when I was in chemo. They also sell (and it is legal) a sort of marihuana oil or oinyment for joints. I bought a small bottle and it didn´t do any good. I don´t know where I placed it. And now about the seeds. I don´t want to smoke marihuana. In fact, I don´t even want to smoke a ciggie anymore although I love to be near someone who is smoking nearby. But I do want to plant the seeds. I saw a marihuana plant once and they are beautiful. To plant or not to plant/ that is the question. I have the suspicion that is illegal. I wonder who plants the "legal" marihuana for health purposes. Is it a health purpose to be happy with one´s garden? What would you do?

There are plenty of other things to grow that don't contravene any laws

True. And I have many in my garden. It is just that I have these 2 seeds.

I'd throw them out. If you did plant them and enjoyed the plant you would worry and wonder. Better to be done with it.

It´s so weird about how things change with time. I used to make plant holders with hemp. Now I can only have artificial fiber cords.

@marguicha ...Hemp can do so much. I wish we could grow it.

@celticeagle I remember that I used to buy a certain cough med. Now it is against the law, unless you have a doctor´s prescription.

Check online whether it is or isn't legal. And then follow the rules.

I know that it is illegal to plant several plants. But I don´t know if it is illegal to have one or two. Good idea, I´ll check. Truth is, I just want it for the beauty and the curiosity. I have smoked marihuana a couple of times in my life and nothing happens. So it´s not for me.

I wouldn't grow it. It is against the law in my country. The possibility to get into trouble with the law or my neighbors would stop any thought of growing it.

I guess I would have to have an helicopter flying over my house to see it. My neighbors wouldn´t mind.

I would opt not to plant not to get into trouble

I still would like to know how much trouble would I get into for growing one plant in a container.
