Tiny Island off Australia Exploits Legal Loophole To Grow And export tons of Cannabis

A company on a tiny island off the coast of Australia is exploiting a unique legal loophole that may allow it to grow and export up to ten tonnes of cannabis.

AusCann Group Holdings intends to grow between one to ten tonnes of medical cannabis on Norfolk Island, situated to the east of the Australian continent, from November next year.

The company is able to do so because although part of Australia – where the growth and distribution of weed remains illegal – Norfolk’s self-governing administration can grant a licence to legally export the drug.

Former politician, doctor and company chairman Mal Washer admitted there were some roadblocks to overcome before production can begin.
