A bittersweet day for The Dagga Couple, as it marks one of the historical moments in South Africa's journey to Cannabis legalisation - today is 11 years since Myrtle Clarke and Julian Stobbs first appeared in the Krugersdorp Magistrates Court for Cannabis charges.

2022 is certainly the year for double dabs, kicking off to a great start with the 200th episode of The Hotbox Show. We thank everyone for their huge show of support!
