There is clear optimism in the Victoria region that cannabis farming and production can become the next major industry. 

MediPharm Labs Australia, a subsidiary of Canadian firm MediPharm Labs, is building a manufacturing site and warehouse in Wonthaggi to import and process medicinal cannabis products. The company hope to process up to 100,000 kilograms of locally grown cannabis annually at its peak. 

The move comes with the overwhelming support of Victoria premier Daniel Andrews, who stated, "We indicated we would decriminalise, we would make legal, the use of medicinal cannabis in Victoria for certain patients for whom it can be life saving.” He carried on to say that there was a “real opportunity” for the development of the industry in the state to bring significant job opportunities.
