  Illegal gardener jailed for 'enormous' cannabis haul in WA big enough to fill shipping container A Vietnamese man is sentenced to seven years behind bars for growing one of the biggest marijuana crops ever discovered in Western Australia, with an estimated street value of more than $17 million. When police raided Truong's rural property near Gingin, north of Perth last year, they found enough cannabis plants to fill a 12-metre shipping container.A total of 7,567 plants were growing in 14 commercial-scale greenhouses on the 19-hectare property in Red Gully.At the time, WA Police Senior Sergeant Michael Rowson said he had "never seen anything like it" and said he suspected the crop was linked to organised crime.

(ABC News: Rebecca Opie) A South Australian cannabis oil distributor has been spared a conviction for providing the drug to terminally ill people, with the judge saying her actions helped rather than harmed the recipients.

Jenny Lee Hallam, 47, pleaded guilty to possessing and manufacturing a controlled drug in February.

Her property, north of Adelaide, was raided in January 2017 and police found a number of packaged cannabis oil products in syringes and capsules.

Judge Rauf Soulio today released Ms Hallam on a good behaviour bond in Adelaide's District Court.

He said it was clear Ms Hallam had been making the oil at a financial loss and her actions were not commercially motivated.

He said there was no evidence any harm had been caused to any recipient of the cannabis oil and that the evidence was "strongly to the contrary".
