Totally legal to buy seeds, and grow 6 plants if it's just you, 12 if theres another individual over 21 who shares the address. Dcseedexchange is great resource for seeds.

Seed banks online accept electronic checks. Very easy to do. They also accept regular checks in the mail and will ship the seeds to you. There are a bunch of diff banks so it’s up to you to research which one you wanna use but a quick google search will tell ya what ya need to know

Sandwich entrepreneur fills pot seed need

EAST SANDWICH — Massachusetts residents with certain medical conditions have been able to obtain doctor certificates for medical marijuana for more than a year, but dispensaries are still months away from opening.

So a Sandwich entrepreneur has stepped into the breach, selling seeds that his customers can plant to produce marijuana crops for their own use.

Business is booming, according to Zachariah Kay, owner of Bay State Seed.

“We started selling seeds Nov. 13 and hoped to be selling about 100 packs per month within six months,” Kay said. “We were selling 100 packs per month by the second month.”

The 57-year-old longtime Sandwich resident was heading out after a recent interview to meet a woman in her late 50s with multiple sclerosis who was looking to grow her own medical marijuana.

“These are the people I’m doing this for and I’m happy to do it,” Kay said.

Supplying seeds and helping purchasers grow successful crops is a full-time job, said Kay, who formerly owned his own insurance business.

“I meet people every day for seeds,” Kay said. “And I’m usually still taking phone calls at 8:30 at night.”

Kay is licensed by Colorado-based Centennial Seeds to reproduce their strains in Massachusetts and sell them under the Centennial name. He received extensive training in seed reproduction from Centennial founder Ben Holmes.

“I spent a lot of time under his tutelage,” Kay said.

Kay was the first to receive an out-of-state license from Centennial, according to Holmes.

“I like his whole approach to things,” Holmes said. “I gave him a small number of breeding parents. Through Zach, we were able to expose people to our products.”

Kay started growing the plants for its seeds as soon as medical marijuana became legal in Massachusetts in January 2013. To date, he has produced six crops.

Tins containing 14 seeds sell for $75. Consumers can select from a half-dozen plant varieties, all developed by Centennial.

“One plant is probably going to get you $1,000 in medication,” Kay said.

The seed purveyor said he can offer some guidance on what each strain delivers, since he’s worked with area medical marijuana doctors learning to match appropriate strains with particular illnesses.

Patients frequently come with recommendations from their physicians for seed types, he said.

Customers can also purchase a growers guide written by Kay, and he provides follow-up support.

“I just don’t want to sell seeds to sick people without their knowing how to grow them,” he said.

Kay has spread the word about Bay State Seed in three ways: business cards available at the offices of physicians specializing in medical marijuana certification, his website, which went up in October, and via a Facebook page that went active in February.

“My page has already had 1,400 hits,” Kay said.

Kay was a recreational pot smoker in his 20s but didn’t take a toke for the next two decades at the request of his wife.

“She thought it was childish.”

His wife died in 2006 from a fast-moving brain tumor. The couple had children, ages 22, 18 and 8, at the time.

“I was devastated by her death,” Kay said. “I was unable to work for about three years, and I had post-traumatic stress in the worst way. I couldn’t think and I had trouble sleeping at night.”

Kay said his doctor prescribed traditional medication for anxiety and chronic back pain related to a car accident years earlier.

“Then I decided I was going to try medical marijuana instead of prescriptions,” he said. “My doctor was surprised that within four months, my medicine could be cut back 30 to 40 percent.”

Kay said he checked with several lawyers before starting his business to make sure he didn’t run afoul of the law.

“I found out that patient-to-patient sales are acceptable,” said Kay, who keeps his own medical marijuana certificate tacked to the door of his grow room.

“The Department of Public Health knows there’s no way you can have medical marijuana without seeds.”

Valerio Romano, an attorney representing four of the current nonprofit organizations approved by the state for provisional medical marijuana dispensary licenses, called the issue of seed distribution “a murky area.”

“The issue is the Schedule 1 nature of marijuana in federal law,” Romano said. Marijuana bears the same classification as drugs like heroin. “I don’t see any reading of law where you can distribute seeds.”

But state agencies had nothing to say on seed sales when contacted by the Times.

The spokeswoman for the Department of Public Health declined to say whether sale of medical marijuana seeds is legal. Anne Roach said it was something “state law enforcement” should answer.

The state district attorney’s spokesman said it was a question for DPH to answer.

Once dispensaries open in Massachusetts, only patients who can prove that going to a dispensary would be a hardship will be allowed to continue to grow their own medical marijuana.

Holmes doesn’t see that as the demise of the Massachusetts seed distribution business, particularly in light of marijuana’s history in his home state of Colorado, where recreational pot is now legal.

“I think everything is fluid,” Holmes said. “What is a medical system now could wind up as a retail system in a few years.”

Meanwhile Kay is optimistic about the future of his business. “Whatever way the law goes, there will still be a need for seeds and I’ll still be here.”
