Mr Benjamin said he could not disclose the business’ exact location for security reasons, but confirmed it would be in Queensland.
“We work very closely with emergency services, the police, (and) we’ve had military advisers come in,” he said.

The Queensland government’s medicinal cannabis laws were passed by the parliament in October 2016 and came into effect last month.
