Is it Legal To Have Marijuana Plants in The Netherlands?
Many people love Holland, because of our rules about smoking weed. Everyday people visit our shop to experience the freedom of smoking a joint or to have an edible without any fear of getting caught by the police, but there is more! In this blog you’ll find out that our government is fine with having your own marijuana plants.
How many plants?
Every household can have a maximum of five Marijuana plants without being prosecuted when the police finds out. So if you already were dreaming of starting a big Marijuana farm; we’re sorry for destroying your dream. Even if you play by the rules and have 5 or less plants there are still a few things you need to know.
You still have to hide them
A Marijuana plant is beautiful to look at and the best part of it is that you can have your own weed. Just like any other plant, a Marijuana plant needs light. There’s just one problem. You can’t just place them at a nice spot in your frontyard or put them on your windowsill. If the police sees them they will still remove them. So look for a private spot for your plants.
You won’t go to jail when the police takes your plants (if you have five plants or less). It just sucks that you have to say goodbye to them. You will have a problem If you have more plants than the tolerated number. Even in Holland. You can go to jail for 4 years for having a plantation or get a fine of €67.000. Just saying; That’s a lot of money that you can also spent on weed from a coffeeshop!
What to expect
We love marijuana plants, but don’t expect too much from it. It’s just like growing your own vegetables, it’s hard to have a good harvest. If you ever tried to grow tomatoes you know how hard it is to get them ripe and big enough. At the end of the day we still had to buy them at the grocery store. We suggest that if you want to grow a Marijuana plant don’t expect any harvest at all. Just water them, give them love and talk tot them and watch them grow.
Of course, as a smoker for years I was mainly interested in the different strains around the world. But the moment I have dealt with this topic more closely, I wanted to know what positive side effects weed brings. Which varieties help against which diseases & symptoms. And does weed really makes you addicted? Read more here, I’ve tried to find as many different strains as possible. In my blog I take you to my coffeeshop journey around the world. I try to collect as many shops as possible for you and I will also try to bring you the advantages and disadvantages of the different countries closer. Not only in the Netherlands there are coffeeshops, also in Germany, Canada, USA, Belgium & Spain. Did not know? Then read more here in my blog.
