The South African Police Issue a Directive
The National Commissioner of the South African Police Force, General KJ Sitole, issued a directive to the entire force with regards the Constitutional Court judgement in September 2018. The directive is not dated but it appeared on our feeds mid January 2019. We asked our legal team’s opinion and their reaction was “No surprises there!”
If you are in trouble with the law with regards a Cannabis offense and the police have not taken this directive into account, you can use it (together with the ConCourt Judgement) in your defense in court.

The National Prosecuting Authority also issued Cannabis guidelines following the judgement and these may be of interest to you and your legal team.

As far as we know, these are the ONLY two official documents to come out of government departments charged with enforcing Cannabis laws since the September judgement.
We are very aware of the “rumours” that are circulating on social media that the Hawks have been given R120million to come and find everybody and bust them! However, we can’t find anything to substantiate these claims so our answer to this remains the same:
– Keep it small
– Keep it simple
– Stop trying to be first because everybody is first already, we are ALL winners!
– There are NO legitimate licenses available, nor have any legitimate licenses been issued by any government department.
– Keep your trade OFF of social media
– Don’t believe ANYTHING you hear about being able to get around the law. It is VERY difficult.
– Do your homework.
Arrests are still happening all over the country so don’t be next.

Through the powers of Jah we will get through this, my brothers and sisters
I applied at SAPS and I was wondering if any of the tests that they might be taking on me also involves the test for Cannabis and if they do, does it mean it’ll get in the way of me actually landing a job?
We have no idea if they test for Cannabis but certain that, if they do, you will not get the job. All the best working for the enemy but hopefully you can make a difference and we hope you get the job.
Hi just a question ..can you be charged without an actual test result. as apposed to an saps forensic affidavit by the lab. I want to see the results
Depends on what you are being charged with. The forensic lab only confirm for the police that it is actually Cannabis. It is not a test for the analysis of the actual Cannabis.
