Appendix B
Applications for authorization to cultivate low-THC hemp (Cannabis L.) for research purposes

Back to the Industrial Hemp Agronomic Trials

In October 1995, the Minister for Primary Industry released for public comment a Report of a Review of the Potential for Commercial Hemp Production in Western Australia. The Report included a recommendation that a small agronomic trial program be implemented. In order to implement this recommendation, up to ten field trials of low-THC hemp (Cannabis L.) will be authorized in Western Australia to investigate the commercial potential of producing low-THC hemp for fiber, fabric and other products.

The possession and cultivation of low-THC hemp (Cannabis L.) for any purpose in Western Australia is currently prohibited because it is defined as a prohibited plant under the Poisons Act 1964 and a prohibited import under the Commonwealth Customs Act 1901. Authorizations under each Act will be required for the trial program.

The steering committee will select applicants for authorization on the basis of

Details of the conditions which must be met by applicants are provided in the attached application form. Also attached are instructions on how to make application for authorization and information required in support of the application.

There will be no charges raised for making an application or for the issuing of an authorization during the trial period. Authorizations are not transferable.

Please note that applications must be lodged with the Chairman, Industrial Hemp Steering Committee, The Link Shopping Center, Aberdeen Street, Albany, WA 6330, by 5:00 PM

3rd May 1996

Yours sincerely,

Hon Murray Montgomery, MLC
