What is Medical Cannabis?
Our focus is to establish, develop and support a sustainable and prosperous hemp industry for Western Australia. High or low THC, regulated by the Agricultural dept or the Health dept (via the Office of Drug Control) aside, all Cannabis has medicinal value and the medical market is an integral and exponentially expanding part of the hemp industry.
Fact is, the medical focus is helping remove the stigma associated with the Marihuana Maddness propaganda campaign in the 1920s and ’30s in the US, in the lead up to prohibition.
We are grateful to Hon Alannah MacTiernan MLC for listening, learning and acting at a parliamentary level, pushing for legislative reform to assist hemp licencees maximise their return on investment, and potentially open up the medical and recreational Cannabis market in WA to the world.
Decriminalisation is the answer… Prohibition was the result of a malevolent ruse … Free the plant, people and planet.
