Although there are no retail outlets where you can legally buy marijuana seeds in Illinois, you can order them online and have them delivered discreetly to your door using secure payment facilities and the very best ‘stealth’ postage and packaging methods. In 2013, Illinois passed laws allowing for the possession and use of medical marijuana for all registered patients, and although it still regards growing marijuana in Illinois as a crime, the punishments are less severe than in many other states, allowing for the possession of under ten grams of marijuana to be classed as a civil violation, rather than a crime, incurring only a small fine for people caught in possession who are not registered medical marijuana patients.
Computers, smart phones and tablets make online purchases simple, creating a vast amount of letters and parcels to be distributed daily. In the past, marijuana seed purchases have been stopped at customs and seized, but rarely has anyone ever been prosecuted. The law states you cannot plant or cultivate marijuana seeds, possessing them in itself isn’t a crime, and although the state ensures you cannot purchase them within it’s borders, you can legally buy marijuana seeds in Illinois online.
You should be fully aware of the risks involved if you decide to germinate and grow marijuana seeds in Illinois, the laws become more severe as you increase the number of plants. Cultivating five or less reduces the penalties to a maximum of one year in jail, while more than that may result in up to six years incarceration. Obviously nobody wants to ‘do time’ so reducing the risks as much as possible should be your highest priority.
Registered marijuana patients are legally able to purchase up to 70 grams of marijuana per 14 day period from one of the state licensed dispensaries, although they are still unable to cultivate and produce their own plants. Becoming a registered patient and growing up to five selected medical marijuana seeds, can often lead to non-custodial sentences, compared to non-registered, ‘recreational’ users growing a similar number of plants.
Before you buy marijuana seeds in Illinois online, consider where you are going to plant them and the best strains for that environment. While some growers are experienced and can spot problems developing with their plants, others are new and may well produce a better harvest with an easier strain or variety. Often plants develop differently indoors compared to being grown outside in the natural sunlight. This can be due to the longer vegetative period, and slower, but more reduced hours of sunlight the plants receive in the later stages of Summer, and early Fall. Selecting the right strains and buying marijuana seeds that suit your style, experience and environment is essential in producing a successful crop, especially if you plan to reduce the risks and only grow a maximum of 5 plants.
