Yes, growing weed in Massachusetts is allowed. Medical marijuana has been legal since 2012, and recreational use has been permitted since 2016.

Individuals over 21 can possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana or 5 grams of concentrate. In private residences, possession is capped at 10 ounces. Medical users can have up to a 60-day supply or 10 ounces at home.

However, there are still some penalties to be aware of:

  • Marijuana use or transfer on federal lands is prohibited.
  • Possessing over 1 ounce of marijuana may lead to six months in jail and a $500 fine.
  • Smoking in non-smoking areas may result in a fine of up to $100.
  • Selling to a minor incurs a $1,000 to $5,000 fine and three to five years in prison.
  • DUI carries a maximum penalty of two years of probation, educational training, a 90 to 365-day license suspension, and a $500 fine for first offenses.
  • Marijuana must be in a closed container away from the driver; violations can result in a $500 fine.

Growing Weed in Massachusetts

In Massachusetts, both medical and recreational users can grow up to 6 cannabis plants at home, or 12 if there are multiple residents aged 21 or older.

However, there are strict regulations: cannabis plants must be kept out of public view, and violations can lead to a $300 fine and plant confiscation. Additionally, extracting cannabis oil with flammable materials is illegal. If you grow more than 6 but not more than 12 plants, you could face a civil penalty of up to $100 and have to forfeit the extra marijuana.
