Cannabis has drawn much attention over the past few years from places all around the world. All of a sudden, everyone is talking about Cannabis and hemp and it seems that new terminology is popping up daily. As a Cannabis community, we know that we know our plant. But who will educate the lawmakers?
You might be surprised to hear that the people who are trying to create all the new laws surrounding Cannabis and its consumption in South Africa, don’t really know what the plant is about. When Myrtle spoke to parliament at the end of last year, it was evident that we need to educate the lawmakers to ensure fair and equal rights for all involved with Cannabis in our country.
Fields of Green for All knows that our Cannabis community should be given a voice and this is your chance to educate the lawmakers.
