In a disappointing, yet somewhat unsurprising turn of events – we received news of the The Haze Club’s judgement today whereby their case for the Grow Club Model was dismissed. There is talk of an appeal, but the ruling by Judge Slingers confirms what we hypothesised and that is, that the legalisation of dealing and Cannabis concerns policy issues and this falls within the realms of legislature and not the judiciary. Talk about throwing the ball back into Parliament’s court, further playing out this stalemate of some sort of weird passing the buck game.
Myrtle will be chatting more on this with Lester Kiewiet & Neil on Cape Talk tomorrow (1st September 2022) at 11am – make sure to tune in. Keep an eye out for a follow up blog where we will also be posting a link to this mornings Cheeba Academy webinar on ‘The South African Cannabis Industry and Where to From Here?’, which is a must watch to get some answers to the many questions raised by the Haze Club judgement.
