Marijuana Cultivation

Arrested for cultivating marijuana plants? We can help!

Although possession of a certain amount of medical marijuana is allowed in the state of Illinois (with a prescription only), cultivation of your own plants is illegal. The following penalties listed in 720 ILCS 550/8 are based on how many plants an offender is found to be growing:

  • 5 plants or less: Class A misdemeanor; maximum imprisonment of 1 year
  • 6 - 20 plants: Class 4 felony; imprisonment 1 - 3 years; fine of up to $25,000
  • 21 - 50 plants: Class 3 felony; imprisonment 2 - 5 years; fine of up to $25,000
  • 51 - 200 plants: Class 2 felony; imprisonment 3 - 7 years; fine of up to $100,000
  • More than 200 plants: Class 1 felony; imprisonment 4 - 15 years; fine of up to $100,000
