Secrecy, security paramount as Queensland's first licensed medicinal cannabis farm nears completion

 

The first medicinal cannabis 'mother' plants are expected to be imported from Israel within a month, with manufacturing scheduled to begin within the first half of this year, to supply 5,000 Australian patients.

 

Journalists were required to sign non-disclosure agreements, promising not to reveal the location of the multi-million dollar facility, before Medifarm director Adam Benjamin led a convoy to the high-security site.

 

At the end of a rural road, high security fences topped with barbed wire surrounded a large greenhouse that reporters were not allowed to enter.

"I guess one of the reasons the licensing authority, the Office of Drug Control through federal health, liked what we proposed and awarded our licences is everything's co-located," Mr Benjamin said.

"We cultivate, we produce, we manufacture, we bottle and then we distribute onsite, which I think for accountability is very important.

"The licensing authority has the right to knock on our doors any time of the day they like and come and inspect, and the buck stops with us."

 

Biometric scanning for workers
When workers arrive at the compound they will be identified by fingerprint scanning, and enter through a steel turnstile.

"They get changed. They then go off to their separate sections, which are again all controlled by biometric fingerprint scanning for access," Mr Benjamin said.

Federal Member for Fairfax Ted O'Brien said strict controls of the supply chain would be critical to the Government's aspirations to make Australia the number one world player in medicinal cannabis.

Last week, federal Health Minister Greg Hunt announced changes to regulations that would allow for medicinal cannabis exports, capitalising on what the Government estimated would be a $70 billion industry by 2025.

 

"We need to get approvals. The Global Narcotics Control Board has given a big tick to the framework that's being adopted in Australia," Mr O'Brien said.

"That can only stay if we have the players who manufacture this product doing exactly what Medifarm is doing.

"It's about building a new industry and that's why it's so critical that this company and others comply.

"A lot of the countries that are currently active are exploring the opportunity of imports but also exports themselves. You've got multiple states, particularly in the US that are very active. Canada's coming on stream."

 

Different strains for different conditions
Medifarm is one of just four licensed medicinal cannabis farms to gain approval in Australia.

 

The company has an exclusive international intellectual property partnership with Israeli-based company Tikun Olam, which pioneered world production 12 years ago.

Different strains are grown to treat different medical conditions.

"Ninety-five per cent of the medicines that we produce have no psychoactive ingredients, so although security measures are in place, we're not talking about what people normally would come and try and take," Mr Benjamin said.

 

The schedule eight pharmaceutical medicine has gained federal approval to treat conditions including cancer-related pain, nausea and vomiting, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy, and for use in palliative care.

But bottlenecks remain to doctors prescribing the controversial treatment.

"Everything will be quality tested onsite. We will then validate it off site at the University of the Sunshine Coast," Mr Benjamin said.

 

Two large steel vaults have been craned onto the site. One will be used to store the harvested, dried raw product.

"It's a very heavy steel safe door, and then when it's needed for extraction purposes it goes through to the laboratory, becomes oil, gets tested and then all the finished product goes off into the second vault door," Mr Benjamin said.

"It's fire-proofed to what's called 90-90, which means you can have a blazing inferno outside and nothing inside will get touched for 90 minutes at the very least, which obviously gives you more than enough time to work on anything that may have happened.

"Not just the perimeter security, but also the safety and security onsite is paramount."

All that security for that extremely dangerous medication.you just gotta laugh cause it's laughable!
Yet we are in the process of a severe prescription opioid crisis yet doctors are still perscribing the fuck ut of them!
Still the law doesn't roadside drug test for opiates?still the law doesn't roadside drug test for cocaine drug of the wealthy?
Go figure . Hire a junky to drive you around.

Well all i can say is that thank christ were all educated in producing and makin our own, imagine what the cost of this medication will be, i mean you got cover the enormous outlay first before you make profit right, who's going to pay for all this i tell you who, the sick the desperate and the dieing its a despicable act against our most vulnerable citizens and it enrages me that this is the approach the government is going with, pockets first, people last and for WHAT cbd, cbd is not going to be the treatment that helps most, we need whole plant extractions and high thc with all the cannabinoids working together, and the government thinks were going to be leading the world in no time at all, lol its a joke a laughable joke at the expense of good Australian people, the first qld farm/circus run by clowns set to take over the world , lucky i have a positive outlook on most things because id be in tears after reading that report if i wasnt in such a good place at this time of my life, sadly not everyone's in the same place and will be burnt by the Australian government and so called medical profession in the coming years with no remorse from those who have a hand in it all, so what can we do ?
