Elliott said her store is there to help educate people about the ins and outs of the new laws and people can call the store to ask questions. She said they are also hosting an in-person/Facebook Live event about the new law.

“I think the issue was that way more people showed up than we thought and it’s causing some traffic issues,” said store owner Jennifer Elliott.

Elliott’s store partnered with Virginia Marijuana Justice, which she said provided 500 packets of six seeds each, to gift them to those who were eligible. When asked about the requirement that gifting occur in a private setting — Elliott said the store was closed for the day and it was a private event.

Thursday’s giveaway attracted people like James Vigeant who said that he has regularly used marijuana for the past 50 years, doing so under what he called an ill-conceived drug war.

“Our goal here is to make sure people that are able to receive access to it, it’s legal. And people need it. And so we want to be able to help them get access to it,” added Elliott.

SHORT PUMP, Va. — A free marijuana seed giveaway at a CBD Store on Lauderdale Drive in western Henrico County was temporarily shut down early Thursday due to the large crowds in line for a free marijuana plant seed giveaway.

“All they did was create laws to put drug users in prison instead of giving assistance,” Vigeant said.

However, people cannot consume it in public and the cannot purchase or sell marijuana or the plant seeds. The latter issue is not expected to be allowed until 2024 — so in the meantime, adults are allowed to gift the seeds or up to an ounce of cannabis to other adults in private.

“It’s a good first step,” Brown said.

To get seeds into the hands of people interested in growing plants, the Virginia Marijuana Justice (VAMJ) is giving away thousands of cannabis seeds at spots around Virginia.

RICHMOND, Va. — It will be legal to grow up to four marijuana plants in your home when Virginia’s marijuana laws change on July 1, 2021.

However, it will remain illegal to buy or sell marijuana seeds from which to grow the plants.

“We have seen first-hand the smiles and gratitude that a free seed giveaway brings to first-time growers, and it’s pretty special,” Adam Eidinger, co-founder of DCMJ, said in a statement. “However, we also know from our experience that so many people do not realize that they can grow cannabis at home legally. Some people didn’t know about the new law, as it pertains to home cultivation, until our volunteers handed them a free packet of seeds. So there is a significant educational component to our giveaways.”

16 West Marketplace was packed with people waiting to select a packet of seeds at WellNest Roanoke.

A limit of 400 packets of seeds were handed out in less than six hours.

Virginia Seeds representatives helped educate and explain to people how to grow the seeds and what they can be used for.

“It’s just important for us to be able to meet people where they are because the public has all kinds of different needs,” WellNest Roanoke Owner Valarie Angle said. Whether that’s emotional, medical, spiritual. We want to be there for them. So, this is a great opportunity to do that.”
