Another Day, Another Dagga Arrest.

On 20 April 2018 - a day when millions of Cannabis Culture enthusiasts celebrate their favourite plant - undercover police did a random, warrantless search on some people who were on their way home. One of them was Vince, who had 50 grams of Dagga stashed away in his backpack. Vince is in his 50's

The Cannabis Cart Before The Horse Expo

As you walk into the #CannabisExpo, it is difficult to believe it is only nine months since the Constitutional Court judgement decriminalised the cultivation and consumption of Dagga in a 'private space'. Since that unanimous decision by the bench of nine, a whirlwind of investors, suits, foreign exchange, licenses and health products have sprung up

Stop Locking Us Up in Cages! UPDATE

In December 2017, arrests and detention of peaceful members of the South African Cannabis Culture were an every day occurrence. We wrote a blog  imploring the South African Police to Stop Locking Us Up in Cages! The arrests were off the wall in those days, sometimes reaching over 600 a day. We never thought, after

Grow South Africa with Cannabis – Invitation to a GIBS Forum.
