While growing marijuana plants for personal use has been decriminalized in some western states, it remains very much illegal in the state of Tennessee. In Tennessee, it is a Class D Felony, punishable by up to 12 years imprisonment and a fine of up to $50,000, to grow, cultivate, or manufacture between 10 and 19 marijuana plants, regardless of weight. As the number of plants increases, so do the penalties. For instance, between 20 and 99 plants can result in a Class C Felony, and more than 100 plants is a Class B Felony under Tennessee law. This, of course, is in addition to the negative consequences that go along with being convicted of a drug offense, including losing your job, having your children removed from your home, and diminishing your reputation in the community.
