What kind of penalty can I get 1 plant of

This answer was rated:

What kind of penalty can I get for growing 1 plant of weed at home (outside in my garden)? Can my landlord or the letting agency do something to me? No criminal convictions before.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Your Landlord can seek a possession order to evict you, for illegal conduct. You are likely to get a financial penalty for growing some weed for personal use.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

So the worst thing that can happend to me is a financial penalty form the police,isn't it? What about if I grow it on a public area? Penalty will be the same?

Yes its the same, its all to do with the quantity.
But again you could still be evicted for illegal conduct. Does that help?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, it helps, just one more question,up to how much could be the financial penalty?

It depends on how much your income is, it is all linked. But likely to be around a weeks income.
