So we may be relocating to the fine state of Tennessee and i was wondering if anyone had any current info on the state as far as cannabis goes? I see that they have a cbd only medical program :notfair: , but any contact info or sites that might be involved with the legalization effort would be helpful. We will be in the Chattanooga area FYI. We are looking forward to the move, but i will miss my garden for sure!

 

Ill stay on these boards though forever im sure :yahoo-wave:

my dad met a  friend in Tenn that spent his days driving around (drunk) "fiskin teeth". he did on the spot denture repairs, stuff like that. He also would take them on his trip and return with them repaired. I dunno about using that service but that sounds like my kind of mountain home area.......its a shame that state even gives two hoots about cannabis-medical or otherwise.

Possession of a half ounce of marijuana or less is a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and maximum fine of $2,500. A $250 fine is required for all first time convictions. A subsequent offense brings a $500 mandatory minimum fine.

Gov. Bill Haslam signed HB 1478 into law, which will eliminate the provision that makes a third conviction for possession of marijuana a felony. The law took effect on July 1, 2016.

In addition, having a misdemeanor rather than a felony record will reduce the collateral consequences associated with the conviction.

Tennessee is not nice on Cannabis.

You will get popped and penalized.

The meds are so-so and few and far between depending on where you move to.

I lived there for a year ( a long time ago so things might have changed from the 90's ) and found only ditch weed..Or Homegrown.

If you find a grower, you will be OK. Around $250 a zip near Knoxville.

I grew mine while living there.

Light deprivation works wonders for an extra early harvest..

Good Luck.

Where you moving to?

I have family near Ky.

Hello again!!! While its been a while since ive posted, i have been following the news in Michigan. :watching:

 

We ended up moving to Chattanooga, i love it down here, got a job at Amazon, and have settled in fairly comfortably. I do miss my greens though, instead im on 5 different scripts for my ailments, although there is hope as Tennessee gov. is working on updating the medical program in the first session this year. fingers crossed!

 

Either way, hello from the volunteer state! :blow-a-heart:

I love Tennessee and envy you, except for the absence of MMJ laws. I took my teenage kids to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg last August. We loved it. I've taken my kids on many trips - Florida, Las Vegas, Chicago, Washington DC, Virginia, West Virginia. Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, and costa Rica. By far, the kids' favorite trip was Tennessee.
