Australia: First medicinal cannabis harvested at secret site

The Andrews Government has harvested Australia’s first medical cannabis crop. ­

Canberra has also given the green light for a commercial company to also start growing plants.

The cannabis, planted at a ­secret site last April, will be ­reserved for children with ­severe epilepsy this year.

The crop is now being tested and formulated in preparation for the first patients.

Victoria last year became the first Australian state to legalise cannabis for medicinal purposes.
