Final Expert Witnesses for The Trial of the Plant

FGA-logo-isolated-1000px bcriminal-200x200-avatar-transparent

Together with our legal team at Schindlers Attorneys, Johannesburg, we have finalised our list of Expert Witnesses for The Trial of the Plant, due to start in the Pretoria High Court on 30 July 2017 until 25 August 2017. The final list, together with summaries of each expert’s evidence has been delivered to the plaintiff’s attorneys.

Totaling over 3000 pages, we hope that our defendants are busy reading our expert summaries very carefully!

In May this year our attorneys met with Deputy Judge President Ledawba in Pretoria. The DJP is managing the case and a set of deadlines was set down so that the trial preparation can proceed in an orderly manner. The next deadline is for the defendants to advise us, by the end of March 2017, how many experts they intend calling. So far we know of two, Dr David Bayever of the Central Drug Authority  and Prof Shabir Banoo of the Medicines Control Council.

The Trial of the Plant is finally within our grasp. The question we are asked most frequently is “How confident are you?” The answer to that is, while we are very aware that this is a momentous task with lots of work still to be done, we look over the summary of our evidence with pride and this is a huge boost to both confidence and morale.

Thank you to everyone involved with the process and thank you to all of our supporters for your patience and ongoing commitment to keeping our eyes on the prize.

Myrtle, Jules and the Fields of Green for ALL team.

    Hi. You should consider approaching traditional healers too. They could represent a large amount of people who haven’t really been considered in the trial even though they represent a large portion of the cannabis user population.

    My concern is Goverment corruption getting involved against the plant.

      Yes, this is a concern of ours too. However, the arrests MUST STOP! You know that Tamas! We are working very hard at our ‘desired outcomes’ so watch this space. Fields of Green for ALL.

    Things are changing! More and more decent law-abiding “normal”citizens are waking up to the Healing benefits of Cannabis. There are thousands of documented cases proving that this is indeed a Miracle Plant and was widely in use even in Biblical Times! I am confident that this case will be a definitive changing point in S.A. and THANK YOU for doing this.

      Thanks for the support Gene. One of the positive spins around this taking so long is that it has allowed for a vast number of South Africans to become aware of this plant and wake up to the propaganda that they have been believing for so long. Onward and Upward!

      And big love from Africa back at ya! Will definitely be in contact as we tell the stories that mirror each other. Jamaica – Africa + Africa – Jamaica, we are ONE!

    While I’m thrilled you are taking this to court, it still really sucks that a person must ask a court to have a plant.

    • Myrtle Clarke October 11, 2016 at 4:45 am - Reply

      Indeed Ryan, seems like there are so many issues in the world but we hope that the victory for freedom over our own minds will pave the way for other things. Thanks for the support!

    Hi Myrtle and Jules… I’m so thrilled to learn about folks like you. You are representing a very big number of people and I’m one those too. This amazing plant will not only eradicate crime by far, a very big margin at that, but will also take the South African economy to incredible heights than all the so called “precious” minerals which have help to wound the environment more than boosting the economy, including the corrupt politician. It’s amazing how 70 years of propaganda by America and it’s allies, have caused damage into countless things when it comes to this stigmatised nature’s answer for many ills. This includes our parents, ourselves, our children and our grand children believing that dagga is no good while greedy moguls are busy marauding around the globe to enrich themselves more while killing the only planet we need. This has to stop, especially in a country where the rich – poverty gap is ever widening and there seems to be no end in sight. Ke nako (Sotho for “the time has come”) for our government to wake to the earth’s call and allow a plant so unimaginably powerful that the universe will respond with vigour and bring balance to all and for all. It’s with pleasure and anticipation that I stand with you and doing my bit to educate others with the little research I have managed to do on the internet and have been blown away by it so far… #daggamustriseagain…

      Oh great. Another leftist idiot blaming America and its allies for everything. What about the countries who are not American allies who are strict prohibitionists? Your ilk never speak out against those. Take Cuba, for example. Very tough on weed and an enemy of the US. Sweden and and France are good examples of leftist European prohibibitionist countries. Meanwhile weed is now legal in almost half of the US. But go ahead and blame the US for everything like a good little Orwellian sheep.

    Yo, I got a perfectly rolled blunt. Sitting at the park reading a book. Police van stops behind me just after I sparked it.
    I got the beating of my life for just chilling. I need you, we all need your help. I’m not a criminal neither is the leaf!

    Dear Myrtle and Jules,

    I don’t have the words to explain how thankful, proud and in awe I am for your courage, hard work, sacrifices and patience! I am going to try my best to come to Pretoria (I am a Western Cape resident) for the court case next year. If I have any money left over at the end of this month I will make a small donation.

    Much admiration,
    Stephan Venter

    Did you guys approach Dr William Courtney to take part as an expert witness?

    • Myrtle Clarke November 10, 2016 at 6:07 am - Reply

      Yes and he indicated that he would be willing to participate but then we had to choose Dr Donald Abrams as he has the most published, peer reviewed studies in the field. Thanks for knowing your experts!

    Yes truly it’s revelation time. If possible we should refer the state to the Book of rules. Bible students also discovered that in the book of Exodus 30 : 22 – 38 , this tree is refered to as KANEH BOSOM ( Hebrew) forms the major ingredient for the Holy Anointing Oil that Jah instructed Moses to make to cleanse the Israelites. The Oil still makes wonders even today though they tried to change KB to a poisonous plant in today version n language. I’m a Chemical Engineer by proffesion and looking forward to engage in any research developments in order to get it to work for humankind
