Last year the South African Cannabis Survey of Users and Growers, was launched by Social Surveys Institute and Fields of Green for ALL to help understand the South African Cannabis industry.

A Greenest Welcome to 2021

By |2021-01-14T10:10:09+02:00January 14th, 2021|

With the world in chaos, so much came tumbling down in 2020 that we are surprised that the last apartheid law is still standing. Sadly the powers that be and most of the media and police are still perpetuating prohibition in 2021. We’re expecting a flood of questions in the new

Saying Goodbye to 2020

By |2020-12-09T16:20:12+02:00December 9th, 2020|

For our team at Fields of Green for ALL and the #HotBoxShow, a break from the office, the endless correspondence, content creation and webinars cannot come soon enough. It’s been a busy year that we can finally say goodbye to. We will be closed from Friday 11th December to Monday

When the Cops Come Knocking

By |2020-12-10T13:04:25+02:00December 9th, 2020|

Arrests can be divided into two categories. Those where the victims know their rights, and those where they do not. Here follows how I interpret the four documents that were set out by government to guide the SAPS in why and when a Dagga arrest is necessary, which should be never. We will focus

What is my Private Space Anyway?

By |2020-12-10T13:04:06+02:00December 7th, 2020|

Well.  That’s an easy question for any civilian, but the cops seem to have massive private space issues. Section 14 of the Constitution of South Africa defines the Right to Privacy as such: “14. Privacy – Everyone has the right to privacy which includes the right not to have— (a) their

Elder Maxi the Rastafari Samaritan

In recent months we became aware of an amazing man who helps folks get their property back from the SAPS after unconstitutional arrests. According to the police directive they have to return your property if you are not charged, but the police seldom follow the law and very few folks have

“I Own the Police!”

By |2020-12-02T18:42:00+02:00December 2nd, 2020|

"I own the police." It’s a pretty strong statement. I heard it recently in a non-cannabis related incident and it raised a few questions for me. How much does it cost to own the police? Do you pay per person, per shift or is it a whole station kind of

Cannabis & Cannabis Resin Deleted from UN Schedule IV

By |2020-12-02T17:26:11+02:00December 2nd, 2020|

Today, 2 December 2020, the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs reconvened for their 63rd session. The purpose of the meeting was to vote on the scheduling recommendations of the WHO regarding "Cannabis and Cannabis-related substances" for "medical and scientific purposes". We were quite surprised to find that a vote will
