Free marijuana seeds

However, it will remain illegal to buy or sell marijuana seeds from which to grow the plants.

RICHMOND, Va. — It will be legal to grow up to four marijuana plants in your home when Virginia’s marijuana laws change on July 1, 2021.

To get seeds into the hands of people interested in growing plants, the Virginia Marijuana Justice (VAMJ) is giving away thousands of cannabis seeds at spots around Virginia.

“We have seen first-hand the smiles and gratitude that a free seed giveaway brings to first-time growers, and it’s pretty special,” Adam Eidinger, co-founder of DCMJ, said in a statement. “However, we also know from our experience that so many people do not realize that they can grow cannabis at home legally. Some people didn’t know about the new law, as it pertains to home cultivation, until our volunteers handed them a free packet of seeds. So there is a significant educational component to our giveaways.”

Virginia Seeds representatives helped educate and explain to people how to grow the seeds and what they can be used for.

16 West Marketplace was packed with people waiting to select a packet of seeds at WellNest Roanoke.

Across the Commonwealth, seeds are being handed out for free since there is no legal way to buy them in the state just yet.

A limit of 400 packets of seeds were handed out in less than six hours

ROANOKE, Va. – Looping around a wellness center in downtown Roanoke, hundreds of people were ready to get their hands on free cannabis seeds.

A limit of 400 packets of seeds were handed out in less than six hours.

“It’s just important for us to be able to meet people where they are because the public has all kinds of different needs,” WellNest Roanoke Owner Valarie Angle said. Whether that’s emotional, medical, spiritual. We want to be there for them. So, this is a great opportunity to do that.”

Angle said as cannabis becomes more of a tool in holistic healings she encourages the use of products and welcomes them in her store.
