A man has been charged with trafficking cannabis after more 100 plants were found alongside packages of the drug in Tasmania.

The 45-year-old was arrested after 107 cannabis plants and about 4.6kg of the drug packaged into 166 one-ounce bags were found at a Tasman Peninsula address on Friday, police said.

The man is expected to appear in court at a later date charged with trafficking a controlled drug and cultivating a controlled plant for sale.
