Enjoy it! You are welcome to smoke, vape, cook, make tinctures, or do pretty much whatever you want with your harvest—with just a few exceptions.
For growers just starting out, growing indoors is a popular choice. You can designate a small grow space in your home, add some locks, and ensure that nobody can see them from outside.
Whether indoors or out, your grow space needs to be protected with a lock or some sort of security device. Also, you need to keep your plants out of sight. State law says plants may not be visible from a public place without the use of “binoculars, aircraft or other optical aids.”
How Do I Start?
Here’s where it gets a little tricky. Sure, you can head down to your local grow store (more on that in a future article) or even online and stock up on lights, fans, and a grow tent… but what about the plants themselves?
At the moment, there is no legal way to purchase seeds or starters in Massachusetts. Neither state-licensed cannabis retailers nor anyone else can legally sell them. Under state law, however, gifting is allowed. So if you know someone who is already growing, perhaps you can persuade them to clip you off a clone.
You can gift seeds and cannabis clones, too!
Are you an adult 21 and over? You can grow up to six plants in your home. Married? Living in sin? Got a couple roommates? A household that consists of more than one 21+ adult is allowed to grow up to 12 plants. But that’s it! No more, regardless of how many grad students you can stuff in an old Victorian.
Maybe it’s the convenience of having it in the house, or perhaps you like to do things yourself.
People over the age of 21 can grow up to six marijuana plants in their homes (with a maximum of 12 plants per household), so long as they are kept in a locked location and out of public view.
If you want to grow good weed, you'll have to work for it.

Whatever your reasons are, Massachusetts state laws allow you to take things into your own hands when it comes to marijuana — green thumb included.
If you’re thinking about growing your own marijuana, there’s plenty to know — where to get seeds, the equipment needed, and, of course, what to keep in mind when tending to your crop.
Massachusetts first voted to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of cannabis in 2008 while they became the eighteenth US state to legalize medical marijuana in 2012.
Following legalisation, recreational dispensaries opened their doors to the public in November of 2018 with same laws for possession once again applicable – Adults aged 21 or older (who hold a valid government-issued ID) able to purchase up to 1oz of cannabis or 5 grams of concentrate from one of over 50 dispensaries state-wide.

Growing cannabis has never been more accessible, but before you start cultivating marijuana in Massachusetts, it is important to be fully aware of Massachusetts cannabis laws regarding both possession and cultivation.
However, it wasn’t until December of 2016 that Massachusetts took the plunge with recreational legalization established following a ballot initiative in November of that year. Under Massachusetts’ recreational cannabis laws, adults aged 21 years or older are permitted to possess up to 1oz of cannabis or 5 grams of concentrate when in a public setting and up to 10 oz of cannabis when they are in a private home or residence.
