    Growing any cannabis plants in WA is an offence under section 7 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1981. You cannot legally grow any cannabis plants anywhere in Australia unless you have authorisation for the purpose of a registered medical experiment. The only other exception is industrial hemp plants, for which you need a licence, and in any case they don't contain any significant amount of THC.

    The number of plants only affects the penalty. But even the 'simple offence' under s 7(2) has a maximum penalty of $2000, two years imprisonment or both.
