Young marijuana plants at Copperstate Farms in Snowflake, Arizona, in 2019.

When Arizona voters approved Preposition 207 last year, it not only allowed residents to buy marijuana legally from dispensaries — it also gave them the green light to grow it themselves.

The law allows Arizonans to grow up to six plants at home for personal use, as long as those plants are kept out of the reach of minors by a lock or some kind of security device.
