We report on true stories of abuse by the South African Police “Service”. Unedited. Published on request and with permission. In this latest case it is once again clear that the SAPS do not respect the constitution or the government, they do not follow the law, do not follow their own

Last week’s release of Section 3: Stakeholders illustrated how many types of Stakeholders that are, or need to be, involved in Cannabis policy discussions in South Africa.

By |2021-02-08T14:01:59+02:00February 8th, 2021|

Last week’s release of Section 2: Background, History and Context helped our readers understand the Cannabis landscape in South Africa as far back as the early 19th century, and how our history has set the tone for conversations about Cannabis laws and policies.

Is Weed Legal in South Africa?

By |2021-01-21T11:07:42+02:00January 21st, 2021|

No, weed is NOT legal in South Africa. It is ridiculous, but trade in Cannabis is still a criminal offence in South Africa. Also the SAPS still treat possession as a crime and you will be arrested if found in possession of Cannabis, even unconstitutionally in the privacy of your own

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 |2021-03-17T20:23:48+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

“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
