Grow houses pop up across Victoria
Grow houses pop up across Victoria, the state is becoming Australia’s unofficial cannabis capital. Across suburbia and regional areas, these innocent houses hide sophisticated secrets behind. This was the domain of Italian syndicates supplementing their market garden crops. These days it is big business for Vietnamese and Albanian syndicates growing crops of 100 plants at a time.
Plants worth $2500 each, with four crops a year, yield growers a million plus a year. These growers have no concern for what it costs to grow as they have no intention of paying. With their own electricians on the payroll, they bypass or steal electricity worth about $1000 a day. This is around $1.5 million in electricity theft a year in Victoria.
These syndicates are slick.
New Holy Grail for Aussie Farmers
With medical cannabis thought to be the new Holy Grail for Aussie farmers, security requirements are something out of a spy movie. Armed security teams, fingerprint access scanners and motion sensor alarms in secret locations. This is the new reality for farmers wanting to grow medical cannabis. They have to ensure the cannabis is secure from the paddock to end user. And, have to be able to prove it the licence application.
Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has now approved 12 licences for businesses to grow or manufacture medical cannabis products. And, the government says they have to prepare for people turning up with guns. Security has to be tight. Those applying for a licence to grow need to prove they have adequate security measures to protect the crop from ending up on the black market.

New Medical Cannabis Council launched in Victoria
A new industry body, the Medical Cannabis Council, launched in Melbourne late in June. Its purpose is to give the cannabis industry a voice in a new regulated industry.
This will help Australia’s medical cannabis industry to position itself as a leader on the medical cannabis. The council will develop best practice standards for growing and supplying cannabis to patients. Council membership includes cannabis manufacturers and growers, health experts and researchers. They intend to conduct scientific research to produce safe products for the market.
The council launched during Medical Cannabis Awareness Week, which held Lucy Haslam’s United in Compassion Medical Cannabis Symposium. Lucy long campaigned for the right for her sick son to use medical cannabis. She is one of Australia’s strongest medical cannabis campaigners.
