Do You Want to Establish a Private Cannabis Club?

By |Published On: October 1st, 2018|

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!


Your R150 per month donation keeps us going, thanks in advance for the support!

    Dear Myrtle,

    Firstly thank you for the work you are doing for the rights of the Plant and the community.

    I don’t know if this is the right platform to pose my question to, but here goes.

    I need advice. A friend of mine is being taken to court by his ex to stop/hinder his access to his child based, inter alia, to his cannabis use. They are insisting on a hair follicle test. Please advise.

    How do I join the private club? and how much do I need to pay a month?

    • Myrtle Clarke November 14, 2019 at 11:47 am - Reply

      Hi Pieter,
      That depends on if there is a private club in your area. Clubs set their own membership fee structure. You will have to ask around because none of the clubs advertise on social media because they are PRIVATE! Hope you come right!

    Up up up I love the Idea it has been in our minds ever since we use hrebs and please consider those who are previously disadvstaged and have suffered humiliation trauma and marginalisation and are indiginous to the land in its entirety.

      Hi Zola,
      Looking forward to having your community as part of our network so that we can all help each other. EVERYTHING that we do is geared towards helping the previously disadvantaged and making sure that we keep large commercial interests at bay. You need to start planning for your private members club as soon as possible.

          Hi Ashley,
          Please can you join The Green Network (R49 / month donation) as that is where the discussion is ongoing and we will give you all the help you need. Registering a private club is definitely the best way to go. You can start by putting a big PRIVATE sign outside. Chat soon and looking forward to you joining.
