Tasmania Will Grow Marijuana For NSW Medical Trials

Tasmania is set to be the first place in Australia to legally grow marijuana, following a memorandum of understanding signed by both the NSW and Tasmanian Premiers. The crops grown in Tasmania are set to be used in NSW medical trials which will see its first treatments administered early next year. Tasmania seems to be the perfect candidate for this deal — the island state already grows most of the world’s opium poppy, along with material grade hemp crops.
