Marijuana cultivation involves the growing, harvesting, or cultivating of marijuana plants. Despite the growing acceptance of both medical and recreational use of cannabis around the country, in Tennessee, the possession, cultivation, sale, or distribution of marijuana is illegal, and acceptance or legality in other states has no bearing on Tennessee's laws and the prosecution of them. The severity of a conviction on marijuana cultivation charges depends on various factors, such as the quantity of plants, intent to sell, and involvement of other illegal activities.
