Marijuana cultivation is a relatively common offense in Pennsylvania. While many have recently viewed the possession of a small amount of marijuana as a less serious offense, the cultivation of the marijuana plants has not. Law enforcement actively seek out individuals who grow marijuana and prosecutors look to deter the crime with harsh sentences against those charged and convicted.
In West Chester, Chester County and Pennsylvania the penalties for marijuana cultivation can be severe. When determining what the sentencing guidelines will be for a specific case involving growing marijuana, the amount (in pounds) of marijuana or the number of plants that are recovered is what will determine the guidelines that are applicable.
