Hemp and Cannabis farms are becoming an increasingly important part of the Australian economy.
Cannabis farms are riding a growing high thanks to recent changes in legislation and the debate around the benefits of medicinal cannabis.
For many patients medicinal grade cannabis oil promises levels of pain relief and therapeutic benefits that conventional medicines lack.
Unfortunately, along with success comes unwanted attention from criminals. Increasingly, thieves and drug dealers, who are presumably looking to get a different kind of high, have targeted commercial cannabis farms.
If you run a cannabis farm you need to think about security.
In fact, it’s a legal requirement for obtaining a licence to cultivate medicinal cannabis. You need to have strict security protocols in place for , growing, handling and storing medicinal cannabis; it’s part of satisfying the fit and proper person test.
And security starts with fencing that stops people gaining unauthorised access to your crops and property. Cannabis farm security is not just about protecting your valuable assets. You need to protect visitors from accidental exposure to dangerous poisons and other hazards too.
Cannabis crops are high value crops and are highly attractive to any criminal. And part of the attraction for thieves targeting cannabis farms is that the remote rural locations and lack of traffic can make covert activities seem relatively anonymous.
When you add in the often slow police response times it’s hardly surprising that opportunists will take advantage of any lapse in your security.
That’s why you need to have a well designed high-level security fence for your cannabis farm. Effective cannabis farm fence design will achieve the following:
