For today's weed news we go to the great nation of Australia.
As of last week, the Queensland region of Australia have a brand-new medical weed production facility!
That's right, Greg Hunt, the country's Federal Minister of Health, not only gave the okay for THC Global's project located in Southport, but he even went there himself to tour the facility. While there, the Health Minister commented on how the facility will bring not only jobs to the area, but also make it easier for Queensland residents to get access to medical cannabis.
By producing an expected 12000 kg of material per year, THC Global as well as the Health Minister agree, that the region will be able to reduce its reliance on imported medical cannabis products, thus making MMJ cheaper for authorized Australian medical cannabis users.
At this point, the country is estimated to have over 8500 cannabis patients, and over 30% of them actually come from Queensland.
"This facility will build our local industry, meet domestic and international demand and create economic growth and jobs," said Federal Member for Moncrieff Angie Bell, who was also present at the opening ceremony of the Southport THC Global facility last week.
And on top of just producing their own Australian-grown meds, THC Global's chairman Mr. Steven Xu also made it known that they "... Expect to support clinical trials and study trials in Australia, which are currently almost exclusively serviced by expensive imported products."
I've spoken with a few weed smokers from Australia about what they think about their current cannabis situation and most of them agree that although there technically is progress being made, it is a very slow process and that the amount of red tape and political fuckary around the topic of cannabis legalization is astounding.
But hey, at least you guys are doing something and although 8500 patients doesn't sound like a lot to me, I feel like somebody is going to have to smoke those 12000 kg a year right?
Anyway, for right now that's what's up in Australia.
