A: Most states regulate seeds adjacently to their actual medicinal or recreational marijuana programs. You will need to consult the agricultural laws or agencies in your state to determine whether the sale of cannabis seeds has been directly promulgated or provided for in your state.

Because cannabis, in all forms, is still a federally illegal substance under the Controlled Substances Act, selling seeds online in a way that may cause the seeds to cross state lines should be avoided at this point in the industry. Consult your state's agricultural and cannabis laws to determine whether you can sell in your state, with the understanding of the still existing federal restrictions you have to keep in mind.
