    What is the punishment in the US for growing marijuana?

    I think it's different for different amounts, but I know it's possible to spend prison time. (correct me if I'm wrong!)

    tax stamps: This law mandates that those who possess marijuana are legally required to purchase and affix state-issued stamps onto his or her contraband. Failure to do so may result in a fine and/or criminal sanction

    So what happens if you have this stamp on your bag and get pulled over and get caught with your bag does it reduce the sentence or?

    Or is this suppose to be for medical purposes.

    For marijuana you have to have the weed to purchase them. Although it is illegal to have the marijuana in the first place.
    For med purposes I am not sure. I suppose you would have to buy the stamps since they are already in "use".

    Well yeah that's what I'm thinking so I guess I'm wondering what is the OVERALL purpose of these stamps?

    What benefits would just a regular guy in the U.S. not needing it for medical purposes( just a guy like me who just likes to get high) get by using these stamps?

    To me it just seems like another way for them to get money and also a very nice way to incriminate yourself but that's just me.

    Yeah they have been around since the made it illegal.
    For some reason they done it like that kinda of a double standard thing to cover their asses.

    Yeah it's pretty confusing I still don't understand but I guess it don't matter too much since I don't plan on taking a bag of weed and getting a stamp( fuck that)

    That's crazy shit though, never heard of it before today

    The tax stamp works like this

    They don't sell tax stamps period.

    When you get caught and all else fails they get you on tax evasion

    This is where people skills come in handy

    Most people know or have family members that smoke pot

    Lots of people know pot is not that big a deal they are afraid it leads to bigger things

    Most court systems really want to help you. So if they think they are helping or you are friendly they go easy. Your court is local, home town stuff. Plus they don't want to drop the hammer on some one they know.

    So ask questions, be afraid, be friendly, kiss ass that will help you.

    Don't listen be bull headed run your your mouth and your ass is gone

    Get your ass in federal court and your ass will have problems the rest of your life. Federal court is the next step and the local boys can't help so the feds think your out of control.

    To the best of my knowledge, you can't get these stamps. Since it is illegal to grow, buy, and smoke cannabis the Gov. made sure no one will ever obtain a stamp. But there is a university I think down south N.C. that is allowed to do research, but this is something arranged through the DEA.

    Check out Woody's web site! I'm sure you can find a link around here some where. He talks all about this in his video!

    Thanx Vote, I was trying to think how to explain this and you are right on. That video is a good place to start.
    For those of you that think its no big deal if you are caught growing, remember 1 of every 8 prisoners in both federal and state prisons is there on possesion charges. It can be a big deal.

    here in texas you can buy stamps. for clairty here these stamps are for every type of drug. like in texas the tax rate is 3.50 usd per gram. if you want to deal and you have 2 lbs you have the stamps on your product then if you are caught there can be NO tax evasion or siezure of personal assets..... this is merely on the state level then you have the feds next.....
