Marijuana Cultivation in Oklahoma
In Oklahoma, the crime of growing marijuana is referred to as “cultivation.” Because our state takes such a hard stance against drug crimes, marijuana cultivation can lead to severe penalties including imprisonment and hefty fines.
Penalties for Marijuana Cultivation
If you are found growing marijuana on your land, you can be charged with a felony offense and face the following penalties:
- Up to $50,000 fine
- Minimum prison sentence of two years
For a second or subsequent offense, the penalties increase:
- $100,000 fine
- Minimum four years in prison
Allowing Marijuana Cultivation on Your Property
Oklahoma law also stipulates that you can be charged for simply allowing someone else to grow pot on your property. The state has determined that landowners have a duty to destroy any marijuana plants they discover growing on their land, and failure to do so can result in the heavy taxation of your property. The state can also file liens against your land in this situation.
