Application of new DNA markers for forensic examination of Cannabis sativa seizures

developmental validation of protocols and a genetic database

Abstract

While Cannabis sativa has many industrial and therapeutic uses, drug varieties of C. sativa remain Australia?s most frequently used illicit drug. It is widely presumed that organised crime groups largely supply the domestic black market for C. sativa. However, law enforcement agencies are often unable to link producers operating in suspected syndicates or to determine whether crops of legalised fibre varieties are being used for the covert production of drug varieties of the plant.
