Dagga Private Clubs vs Over-the-Counter Weed Stores
There is much confusion between operating a Dagga Private Club and opening an over-the-counter weed store. When I have a meeting with someone who wants to start a Dagga Private Club, one of the first things I ask them is “Why do you want to open a Club?” Some people are caught off guard and need a moment to think. Some stutter and don’t know what to say. And then there are some people who say: “I want to support my community.” or “We just want a consistent supply of weed between our group of stoner-friends.”
The answer I dread most is “I wanna make money.” My response to these people is that they need to wait until selling Cannabis is legal. If you want to get rich off of opening a Dagga Private Club, there’s some surprises in store. There are some fundamental differences between these two models that people love to overlook with the glimmer of the “green rush” blinding them to reason and logic.
There are many people who kick against the concept of a Club. Someone recently said to us on a chat group that Fields of Green for ALL are “adamant to force our own DPC THC agenda” down their throat. Well, no. That’s not what we’re doing. We’re actually all about opening up the plant and freeing it completely. Regardless of the fact that good people disobey bad laws, we still don’t wanna end up in jail. So, we take what we have and we make do with it and try to mold it into something that can benefit all the socio-economic classes of South Africa. We don’t want to put our precious crew or dear friends in a store where weed is sold and the Hawks could bust in at any minute. We’d much rather see them build and develop their own communities, with Cannabis being the main focus point.
After all, it should always be about the people.
