A medicinal cannabis company has applied for planning permission to grow crops in St Mary.

The plans include an area at Le Pepiniere Farm where the company would grow a medicinal cannabis for research purposes.

The plans would replace two old agricultural buildings with a modern one which will be fitted out to grow medicinal cannabis.

The crops will ultimately become human medicine and could lead to some local trials with patients in future

TCI expects that through research activities being carried out in Jersey, not only will this lead to a significant increase in the community of scientists recruited, trained and employed in Jersey, it will also put Jersey on the map in the scientific world of this new industry.
