Sen. Vin Gopal’s bill is geared toward anyone who wants to grow cannabis for recreational use. The bill pushes for up to six plants for recreational use and 10 plants for medicinal use.
“Anyone should be able to have access to this plant, whether it is for medical purposes or for your own personal use,” says Susanna Short.
Short is the co-founder of the New Jersey Cannabis Trade Association and a cannabis industry consultant. She says that home-grow is a big topic when talking about the decriminalization and legalization of marijuana. She says that consumers being able to grow their own plants would be a game-changer.
