“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?

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?

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. This leaves us wondering why, considering that more dangerous substances like alcohol and tobacco never get seized. We even published a blogpost about the issue a few weeks ago. The majority of cases ask for their

South African Police Service: Stealing the Food off the Table

By |2020-12-10T12:21:14+02:00October 15th, 2020|

What do we mean when we say the police are stealing the food off the table? We say steal because almost all Cannabis arrests are unconstitutional and therefore unlawful. The victims are almost always innocent and their dagga, money and belongings are almost never returned. Procedures should be followed according to

Two Cancers in One Day

Jules wrote this blog six years ago in 2014 about an arrest where he tried to help the victim navigate through this ordeal. Sadly, even in 2020, not much has changed in how police treat the Cannabis community. The DC inbox has regular  impassioned pleas from people

Dagga arrests: are they necessary AT ALL?

By |2020-12-10T12:23:05+02:00September 23rd, 2020|

The Police The recent death of George Floyd in the United States at the hands of police caused a global uproar. In our own country the killers of Collins Khosa were suspended by the court. But is that enough? None of the officers that killed the 34 men at the Marikana massacre were

Dagga in the Mail

By |2020-12-10T12:23:20+02:00September 9th, 2020|

So what does the privacy judgment say about mailing dagga? And what do the police do about it? Since the judgement on 18 September 2018, pretty much the second most common subject in calls we receive at Join The Queue Dagga Arrest Helpline is about sending dagga in the mail.. It
