Outrage at the recent spraying of Cannabis crops by police helicopters. Cannabis enthusiasts, religious groups, environmentalists & conservation groups, journalists and, of course, the residents of the area affected, have united in their disdain.
For the month of February, hardly a day went by without reports and outrage in the media. We wonder if the law enforcement authorities who oversee these operations are even aware of the truth about Cannabis, the bigger picture that tells anyone bothered to read up about it. The harms of prohibition far outweigh any perceived harms of the plant.
This must be the last year that spraying takes place anywhere in Southern Africa so when news of the return of the helicopters reached the Cannabis Community there was widespread call to action.
The Dagga Couple made no attempt to operate “under cover” while in Port St Johns. We were fortunate to have a local crew to translate and show us where to go. Understandably, not many locals were prepared to appear on camera. When the TV crews arrived after we had left PSJ, they were obviously given full access to the “other side” of the story.
19 Feb: An article from the police point of view which mentions that “unknown people” stuck “I Love Dagga” stickers on the helicopters!
The media attention over the last month shows us that South African citizens are indignant about the actions of “our” law enforcement. Here at Fields of Green for ALL we are, together with our affiliates, looking into all possible avenues to put an end to the spraying and you will hear from us shortly. If you can assist us with contacting specialists or people who can advise on the way forward, please let us know. Thanks to all who helped to make this story heard.
