Budding green thumbs now have the opportunity to legally grow their own cannabis at home.
Canadians can grow up to four cannabis plants for personal use per residence under the new laws. The plants must come from licensed seeds or seedlings.
Chad Bonin has been growing medical marijuana for more than 20 years. He is the in-house master grower at Regina’s The Grow Room, a garden supply shop only for cannabis.
“Basically if you can grow a tomato plant, you can grow a cannabis plant easily,” said Mackenzie Bulych, community development and education coordinator at The Grow Room.
