This is near the top of our frequently asked questions since the historic Constitutional Court judgement last week. It is also a subject that has sparked intense interest during our presentations on the road with our Desired Outcomes Tour.
The Constitutional Court has ordered the government to decriminalise the use and cultivation of Cannabis within private spaces but NOT the trade in Cannabis within these spaces. So let’s see how we can work around this and still be within the confines of the law. This will have to be a very carefully planned exercise while the government pontificates about what the new laws will look like. Creativity has always been our strong point, we get that from our use of our favourite plant!
There are many things to consider when setting up something private. All prospective “club” members and administrators would do well to do their homework so that each and every club can operate with integrity and be exemplary ambassadors for our culture.
Here at Fields of Green for ALL we have been doing our research on this subject for many years. This is one of our favourite models and we visited several clubs when we were in Barcelona, Spain in 2015.
We need to keep going with our fight to ensure the complete re-legalisation of Cannabis for ALL South Africans and there still many hurdles along the road. You want to open a Cannabis Social Club. This is an opportunity for an equal exchange of energy. We are busy preparing a comprehensive guide on how to go about starting a club so why not join The Green Network so you can be part of the process? All Green Network members will receive access to the process and final docs.
If we get enough support, the package will include advice on how to register, legal templates for member agreements, advice on bookkeeping to ensure a non-profit system and whatever else we discover you may need along the way.
We have several reference docs already in the public domain within our Website Resources and all you need to access them is to sign up for our newsletter.
To step it up a notch, sign up for South Africa’s oldest Cannabis PRIVATE club (est 2013) and become part of our secure forum. In addition to access to the forum you will also receive a free tshirt, free advice if you get into trouble with the law and free entrance to ALL of our events, nationwide!
