Although growing and using marijuana is legal in California, there are some restrictions. Illegal cultivation of marijuana plants in California typically refers to growing cannabis without complying with state and local laws. Violations include:

• Growing more plants than allowed by law.
• Cultivating cannabis without the necessary permits or licenses.
• Growing cannabis in prohibited areas, such as near schools or parks.
• Engaging in cultivation activities that violate environmental regulations, such as illegal water diversions or the use of banned pesticides.
• Cultivating cannabis for sale without proper authorization, such as operating an unlicensed commercial grow operation.
