"PBH title 7 § 3382. Growing of the plant known as Cannabis by unlicensed persons.
A person who, without being licensed so to do under this article, grows
the plant of the genus Cannabis or knowingly allows it to grow on his
land without destroying the same, shall be guilty of a class A
So, Federal law aside, one can grow an unspecified amount of marijuana plants and be charged with a class A misdemeanor? Also, I remember last year I read an article in the local paper that someone got caught growing, and the police chopped down the crop to dry it to charge him with a stiffer penalty for the dried weight. Where is the line the arresting officers determine if it should be a misdemeanor or a felony?
I dont grow it, looking for info on a college essay.
it doesnt seem right to me that the arresting officers determine who gets charged with what when the same crime has been committed. So, an officer can bust his good friend from high school with 50 plants and charge him with the misdemeanor, yet bust the local college kid with 20 and charge them with a felony?
