buying marijuana seeds where it is not legal reddit

Seeds are not legal

This comes up all the time. Still technically illegal but not really enforced. Just because the risk is very low and people have beed selling and buying without issue doesn't mean the law has changed. They have always been illegal.I am old enough to know people that were arrested just for seeds. Marc Emory the Canadian cannabis activist spent years in federal prison for selling seeds to people in the US.No novelty items. Seeds for food must be sterilized. No such thing as a "popped" seed to be illegal.

Federal code listed here.Under the Controlled Substance Act, marijuana is defined as:

The term “marihuana” means all parts of the plant Cannabis sativa L., whether growing or not; the seeds thereof; the resin extracted from any part of such plant; and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such plant, its seeds or resin. Such term does not include the mature stalks of such plant, fiber produced from such stalks, oil or cake made from the seeds of such plant, any other compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such mature stalks (except the resin extracted there from), fiber, oil, or cake, or the sterilized seed of such plant which is incapable of germination. 21 USC 802(16)

Edit: Update to say that I would not hesitate to buy seeds online and there is almost zero risk of doing so. Just saying that it has always been technically illegal, and people have gone to prison ion the past and nothing has changed. Stop Marijuana prohibition.

How can sites ship MJ grow kits to PA if it's not legal to grow?

My friend found a site (I won't link it as I don't wanna get into any kind of trouble, not sure what the rules on this topic are) that says it can send an MJ grow kit to all 50 states and according to them its legal to grow everywhere, but that goes against just about everything I've heard, the site seems to be legit as it has good reviews, but I don't understand how they can ship to states like PA with no issues.

Does anyone know someone whose tried a site like this in the past? I'm not looking to do anything with it as I live in an apartment and can't even keep a tomato plant alive but I'm confused on how they're able to sell it everywhere with no legality issues.

If this isn't allowed please just let me know and I'll post this elsewhere, it doesn't seem to conflict with any of the rules though unless I'm not reading them right.

Edit: Thanks for all the help, I've learned a lot more than I thought I would from this post!

So instead of receiving the seeds i ordered i get this letter in the mail saying my cannabis seeds has be intercepted my U.S department of agriculture! Has anyone experienced this? And what sites good to avoid issues like this. Seeds were being shipped to a state that is now legal to grow and smoke

No shit dude, It’s still illegal federally. You’re lucky they don’t prosecute. They used to put people away for years for this stuff. If the port of entry was NY Im guessing you ordered from Amsterdam, which has also tightened their export laws.

If its legal to grow and smoke in your state then go to a shop in your state and get a clone or ask where to get one.

That or order from an in country source so it doesnt pass through customs

Seeds aren’t illegal to own. Try again dude. LEOs don’t have the right to decide if you are using those seeds to grow or not just because they found cannabis seeds. In the United States you can legally buy seeds for souvenirs. Doesn’t matter if they can be grown or not.

Disclaimer* I've only bought seeds online a few times, so I don't have tons of experience with it.

Many of the places I've gone to online will resend your seeds if they get found. It's basically just trial and error to try and get them through customs, and I've never personally heard of anyone being arrested for it.

That’s shitty. I wouldn’t grow from seed anyway. Find clones.

Seeds are what you get mother plants from are you crazy! Plus seeds have a big advantage clones never will. A genuine strong tap root

Thank you to everyone that took the time to comment. Cannabis just became legal this year in my state (MA) and shops haven't opened yet. "Soon to come" reason I'm looking to buy seeds is because I'm looking to grow some new strain's and clone from mother plants. I would use clones from other people but read alot of horror stories of other people clones contaminating your grow with bugs. Thanks again for everyone's feedback.
