Dagga Private Clubs have been increasingly pushed into the public eye, more so with The Haze Club case pending. For many of us in the Cannabis community, breaking the law isn't exactly a new thing. Contrary to our own view and peaceful existence, prior to 2018 we've been breaking the law

By |2021-01-20T20:12:41+02:00January 20th, 2021|

When Dagga Private Clubs started appearing in South Africa, we knew it would just be a matter of time before one of them ends up in court. We were both excited and scared about this happening - scared, because we hate seeing Cannabis-related arrests taking place and seeing what people have
