What is involved in cultivation?
You could end up in prison if you do not have a prescription for medical
marijuana, even if you are the primary caregiver for someone who does
and are found to be cultivating plants.
Doing any of the following would be illegal:
Any of these acts done with cocaine, heroin, and many other drugs is also
illegal and can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the
circumstances of the case.
Penalties for marijuana cultivation can result in 5 years in jail for cultivation
of less than 50 plants and at least 5 years in jail for 100 plants or
more. The manufacturing of other drugs and narcotics is a felony that
comes with up to 7 years in jail. This sentence can be increased, however,
if children were present at the location, if there is a history of drug-related
activity, large quantities of drugs are being manufactured, or if someone
is severely injured or died while drugs were manufactured.
