    Hi everyone,

    I've been searching the web trying to find cases where a person has been charged with growing 1-2 plants in Canada. I've searched the the Supreme court's website for rulings but these are higher profile "large scale" operations.

    Does anyone know of cases where a person has been charged with growing 1-2 plants for personal consumption?

    Thanks!!

    If anyone is interested, I found a website of the Canadian Legal Information Institute. On this you can search by keyword for all decisions in the country or by province. Pretty cool actually. I am looking at various cases now to see if I can find a precedent for the expected charges for a 1-2 plant personal grow.

    I am also interested determining the punishments for 1-2 plants and this is what i've come up with so far ...

    In summary the cops used smell, humidity on windows, and the presence of a bright light to obtain a search warrant. I don't know how relevant this is to present times though as this was around 15 years ago...

    I couldn't find any that had someone with 1-3 plants. I did find one (don't have name now...) where two people were growing for personnel use approx 10 plants, and ended up with a fine.

    Does anyone know of any others?
