Trafficking and Supplying

Seedsman is another one of my favorite online seed banks due to their super low strain prices (much lower than ILGM).

So what about cannabis seeds then?

As of July 1, 2020, one QLD penalty unit is $133.45

They follow the same penalty unit system employed in Victoria.

Update: GREAT NEWS! Meanwhile ACT has legalized recreational marijuana use. It’s the first state to do so and should take effect Jan 2020.

As you have been able to read, some Australian states condone the cultivation of a few cannabis plants, or are lenient with their penalties when you do so. In some cases, this applies to growing your plants outdoors only, not when you do so in artificial circumstances. So if you want to buy cannabis seeds from abroad and you want quick results, it is wise to try autoflowering weed seeds. These are less dependent on perfect light circumstances and more resilient to molds, pests, et cetera. This makes them more suitable for growing outdoors and you don’t have to wait for very specific light or weather conditions for them to flower. Autoflower plants do so automatically when they reach a certain age.

Also, some states have specific policies for penalizing the way marijuana is grown, condoning growing weed outdoors more easily than indoor cultivation in artificial circumstances. However, keep in mind that if you want to grow cannabis commercially, you will still run the risk of harsh penalties. Below you find more information on the restrictions for growing cannabis in each state.

If you are caught possessing under 50 grams of marijuana in this state, you can be offered a diversion and will escape criminal charges. Keep in mind though, that this only applies to the first time you are caught.

Possessing up to 50 grams of marijuana or (naturally) growing up to 2 plants is worth the risk in this state – if you are willing to pay a $200 fine when caught.
