I Need A Clear Answer


Recommended Posts

Im getting my medical card soon and will be growing my own medicine, but I have heard of people getting in trouble for growing there 12 plants but having to much dry weight. What is the actual dry weight allowed? I keep seeing 2.5oz but that can't be. 1 plant will do way more then that..... well for us it does. I appreciate any help I can get.

If your dry weight is to end at 2.5, your wet weight will be roughly four times that, in NON useable meds, until its dry. You could also harvest buds off of a plant, without cutting the whole thing down.

 

"it does for us" ? two registered patients can possess up to five ounces of useable meds for thought.

 

edit for link add--  http://www.legislature.mi.gov/(S(cz1rrgbo4xrbqhe0z2ajyryx))/mileg.aspx?page=getObject&objectName=mcl-Initiated-Law-1-of-2008  explains rules of possession clearly.

Holly cow! So, to be legal I can't harvest a plant that has more then 2.5oz of medicine on it? Just to make sure I'm understanding you correcrly.

What Grass said about perpetual growing.......You will have to balance it out........... The law allows you to grow up to 12 plants but does not mean you have to harvest all at once. Get a perpetual grow going and you can work the weights out. Be very aware of walking the line with dry and undried buds. Alot of police consider any buds usable.

there are no dumb questions. to make sure you're within the law, I suggest only harvesting your legal amount , even wet, and waiting for it to dry before harvesting more.

I keep a scale hanging between my drying rack and the hook, so I can see my "total weight" any time. I generally have 5 patient, so that scale never reports more than 15 ounces, including my "useable meds" on hand. its crazy, but a pleasure.

T remain totally legal, without hassle, make sure you tell nobody about your hobby, except us of course.

You're allowed to grow up to 12 but you don't have to grow 12.

Since I just grow for myself I usually have four varieties in veg and two in flower.

 

You can also harvest mature buds from the top of the plant and leave the lower branches to mature.

 

If you are only growing for yourself it's easier to stay safe because no one else need ever know that you are growing.

if you wanna try different varieties but worried about weight you could also try growing them on 12/12 from seed. This will make some smaller plants usually and keep your weight down. I know not many like doing that but it is an option :) Also some of the auto's and dwarf are small and fun to grow with not much weight.

Read this, http://www.michigan.gov/documents/msp/MSP_Legal_Update_No._103_423389_7.pdf

 

This means ONLY ONE person can grow in one house/building/shed.

 

Section 4 of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act

does not provide a registered primary caregiver
with immunity
from arrest, prosecution, or penalty
when growing marihuana collectively with other
registered primary caregivers and registered
qualifying patients."

unruly hazes and long flowering sativa doms do well in 12/12. I dedicated 2 years in the corner of my room checking this out. I don't do it any longer, but it was fun. I found letting the plant sprout, and grow for a week before the change gave me a better yield.

thanks for bringing this up, I forgot all about 12/12 seeding!

A lot of people seem to get confused because the law allows 12 plants yet 12 plants can/should yield more than 2.5 oz.  heck - even one harvested plant might put you over the limit.  It is like buying a car with a speedometer that goes to 140 mph.  So you need to be careful enough not to exceed your limits even though the situation allows you to tap-dance along the legal-illegal line.  It is easy to exceed 2.5 oz.  And it is easy to exceed 70 mph.  So you need to be responsible about it.
