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

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

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

Can I Grow at a Townhouse or a Flat?

By |2020-12-02T20:33:28+02:00December 2nd, 2020|

Recently someone wrote to us and said their body corporate originally said that the gardens at their complex are "common property" and that they are not allowed to plant or remove any plants without permission. They then stated that numerous people have planted and removed plants and they would like proof

What is Stop The Cops?

By |2020-12-10T12:18:44+02:00November 26th, 2020|

What we want We want the South African Police Services removed from having anything to do with Dagga, immediate and unconditional release of all Dagga prisoners and reparations for the harms of prohibition in the form of total expungements with apology. Our philosophy is very closely linked to that of Steve

Why does the Cannabis Community hate the SAPS so much?

By |2020-12-10T12:19:18+02:00November 24th, 2020|

Well for starters, it’s not just the Cannabis Community.  It seems there’s not too many South Africans who would purposefully interact with police if given the choice, based on their unending thirst for corruption.  Even for the simplest process, such as certifying a document, people would rather drive twice as far

404 Courier Policies and the SAPS

By |2020-12-10T12:20:34+02:00November 18th, 2020|

We often get contacted by folks that had their weed parcels confiscated for no reason.

The majority of cases ask for their
