So I'm just wondering, because I can't find any details in the law pertaining to seedling count. But when starting seeds, one can't just sprout 4 and go with that. I think one must start about 40, cull the males when they show, cull the poor producers, and select the best 4. The remainder can be destroyed or (preferably) given to friends and family.
But Canada’s law says 4 plants, period, it doesn't stipulate any consideration into this necessary, logical agricultural step.
It DOES have language about transporting live plants in public. They can be transported through public places as long as they're not flowering. I think that using the language that the 4 plant limit should pertain to identifiable female plants. If the limit is 4, and the goal is 4, there must be reasonable flexibility in the preparation process, provided that the grower, in good faith, has only 4 plants once true vegetation is underway.
Any thoughts on this? Any experience dealing with legal challenges to extra plants in early stages if cultivation?
