"In the Australian states of Tasmania, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, New South Wales, and most recently, South Australia, the state governments have issued licences to grow hemp for industrial use. The first to initiate modern research into the potential of cannabis was the state of Tasmania, which pioneered the licensing of hemp during the early 1990s. The state of Victoria was an early adopter in 1998, and has reissued the regulation in 2008.[88]

Queensland has allowed industrial production under licence since 2002,[89] where the issuance is controlled under the Drugs Misuse Act 1986.[90] Western Australia enabled the cultivation, harvest and processing of hemp under its Industrial Hemp Act 2004,[91] New South Wales now issues licences[92] under a law, the Hemp Industry Regulations Act 2008 (No 58), that came into effect as of 6 November 2008.[93] Most recently, South Australia legalized industrial hemp under South Australia's Industrial Hemp Act 2017, which commenced on 12 November 2017.[94]"
