What would be the penalty for 6 marijuana plants?

Asked 6 months ago - Olympia, WA

I have my medical card and would like to start growing 6 plants. I know I am within my rights in WA but not federally. I am worried if I start and for some reason authorities find out I would be facing the mandatory 5 years for Schedule I drugs. Is this possible for such a small amount?

    Answered . I changed your category from medical malpractice (about doctors making mistakes) to criminal defense. You are asking about the controlled substances act, a criminal statute, not medical malpractice. Good luck.
