The Cannabis community is shaken by the dismissal of the Haze Club case. We have been inundated with calls and emails from clubs asking us if they will be bust next. Our advice remains the same.

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
