Growers are another source where registered qualifying patients can obtain medication. A registered qualifying patient or his caregiver can be a grower as an option, but must apply for a hardship cultivation registration. Locations for cultivation should be in a place that is enclosed, with locks, and is not publicly visible. Growers can grow up to a limited number of plants sufficient to maintain 10 ounces for every sixty-day supply.
Patients or caregivers may not be able to be growers if ever the hardship cultivation registration is been denied. Denial means that the patient or caregiver must obtain medication from a dispensary due to financial and location status.
- Must be at least 21 years of age.
- An area for cultivation that is enclosed, locked, and not visible to the public.
- Caregivers must be designated by a qualifying patient and must also be registered with the program.
- Grow site’s description and address should be registered with the department.
