Florida law prohibits the cultivation of marijuana (cannabis). Cultivation of marijuana is a second-degree felony and is often the legal charge when a marijuana grow house does not yield enough plants or weight to constitute trafficking in marijuana.
In order to be charged with cultivation, you need not have any specific number of plants. As long as you are growing marijuana, despite the stage of growth the plants are in, you can be charged.
A second-degree felony in Florida is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
