The New York Cannabis Control Board has approved regulations allowing adults 21 and older to grow cannabis at home. Each person can cultivate up to six plants, with a household maximum of 12 plants. This applies to any residence, whether owned or rented.


During the same meeting, 105 more adult-use cannabis licenses were approved, bringing the total to 654 this year. Nicole N’diaye, a hemp farmer, expressed her delight at the new homegrown cultivation laws, noting it could save money for those who grow their own cannabis.

Licensed dispensaries can now sell immature cannabis plants, with local dispensary Stage One celebrating the new rules. Owner Josh Mirsky highlighted the importance of community access and education about cannabis. Stage One will celebrate its first anniversary this Saturday with food trucks and live music.
