Medical Cannabis Growing In Alderney?

10th June 2018

Alderney politicans will consider the option of growing medical-grade cannabis on the island.

The plans have been mooted after it was discovered more than a third of the Bailiwick’s prison population have been convicted of drug related crimes.

One Alderney gardener, Mike O Gorman, says it’s time to move in to the 21st Century.

“We need to recognise that commercial cannabis is of benefit for the extraction of substances for curative purposes.

“I see absolutely no problem in growing a commercial crop, just like any other crop. Health companies have recognised the benefit and they can be profitable to market. Controlling of the growing is followed.”
