It’s officially legal to smoke dagga in SA…

At home…

The Western Cape ‘‘High” Court has made a ruling stating that it is now officially legal to possess, cultivate and smoke dagga in the privacy of your own home.

There are some T’s and C’s though (or should I say “THCs“; see what I did there. LOL.)

You may grow and possess the plant but only for private use. This means that you cannot automatically become a drug trafficker; it’s just for recreational use.

You also have to be an adult in your OWN HOME in order to use the plant for leisure purposes.

So, if you’re a high school kid (I emphasis on the word KID) you do not have the right to smoke in your parents home.

Once you’re over the age of 18 and have your own place then please light it up by all means. (This should encourage you all to continue to work hard, study and get a good job, so that you can in fact get stoned in your own home one day).

Parliament also has 24 months to change the sections in the Drug Trafficking Act as well as the Medicines Control Act.

The successful application to decriminalise dagga was driven by Dagga Party leader, Jeremy Acton and Rastafarian, Garreth Prince.

Acton, Prince, and 18 plaintiffs applied to the court for the Criminal Prohibition of Dagga Act stating that certain sections of the Drugs and Drug Trafficking Act, be declared unconstitutional.

They submitted that the laws prohibiting dagga use are unfair, discriminatory, outdated, and applied disproportionately to black users.

You may now all welcome Mary Jane into your home’s with open arms and feel less anxious about being arrested.

Happy Fr’HIGH’day to all!
