If you put a little effort into it, you can grow pot!
If you don't know what you're doing at all, chances are you're gonna fail! This is because marijuana is actually pretty hard to grow — but that doesn't mean it can't be learned just like any other skill.
In Washington and Colorado, it's legal to grow a certain amount for personal use — but State-sanctioned gardening coaches (who help people learn to cultivate tomatoes or zucchini) have been ordered not to show people how to grow marijuana! It sounds like an 'idiot' curve… one that keeps the amount of pot down. LOLz!
The problem is that the "Master Gardeners" are a federally funded service, and the feds still hate pot regardless of what the states do! So we'll have to add this to the growing list of questions the new legal status raises for the two states. Even if home growing is banned in Washington still, people can do it commercially. In Colorado, people can have 6 plants as long as they're locked away from public view.
So this has brought us to a day and age where the private sector has stepped in! Citizens are offering growing classes and they're booming! One class is even taught in a rented room at a public university, and has students practicing with tomatoes!
So it looks like people are taking the intimidating process of growing in stride, and finding other routes to solve their problems!
