You can grow quite a large amount of cannabis with just two plants - especially outdoors. With feminized seeds, or even seeds from hermaphrodite pollinated plants, you can avoid issues with males as well. Ideally, you would want to germinate many, and then pick the best, but that strategy will definitely skirt the regulatory line. Not sure how low potency males would be a feature though? Overall, these regulations are draconian in my opinion and yes, let's hope they quickly become irrelevant and far more lenient.
