Some New Yorkers are eligible to grow marijuana at home starting Wednesday.

Qualified patients will be able to home-grow up to six plants, only three of which can be grown to a mature state.

Plants must be grown in an enclosed space, not visible to the public.

Patients can have a total of up to five pounds of cannabis from their harvest.

As of last Saturday, New York’s medical cannabis program had more than 124,400 registered patients, and nearly 3,900 certifying practitioners.
