Biology: No text
Uses: Cultivated in some parts of the world for the fibres and more widely for the drug. Its frequent occurrence in places where it is unlikely to have been deliberately sown or planted and despite legal restrictions on its cultivation in Australia, suggests that it is well adapted to perpetuate itself in parts of S.Aust. and, hence, its treatment here as semi-naturalised. It has been recorded outside cultivation in the MU and SL regions.
