Re-legalisation Petition in South Africa

8 posts in this topic

There is currently a large movement in South Africa to re-legalize marijuana (also known as Dagga in SA) for all purposes (personal, medical and industrial). The two main parties involved are NormlZA and the Dagga Couple.

The Dagga Couple has started a process in the Constitutional Court (highest court in SA) and will have a hearing in the next 2 years (if everything goes according to plan). After that the parliament has to be convinced to bring in the necessary changes in law and regulation.

For this we need as many “signatures” as possible. The main focus is on South African citizens, but being backed by a large international audience will only work in our favour.

Please sign our online petition and make a difference, it will only take a minute:

Best of luck to all the SA people! May the Dagge couples get a nice hearing in Court, and may the law succeed :)

Cheers

We are holding Hope for them although the government here is unlikely to change its policies - considering that it is a traditional plant here and it is persecuted as hard here as anywhere else. You would imagine that with a cultural inheritance of using this plant there would be some leniency - unfortuneatly not.

It seems about normal in this country for it to take about two years or more before a matter is escalated to the constitutional court

Meanwhile they will fast track the development of the state presidents new home at an exorbitant cost to the tax payer and then classify the whole thing as a 'state secret'

Things are changing slowly but surely. Today was a smoke off petition( ? ) in Johannesburg and 21 Sept there will be a cannabis march in Cape Town. Can't wait to join in on that 1.

I am willing to wait a few years for the government to eventuall wake up from their lazy bo chairs and start seeing what this plant can do for our country.

And when that day comes........

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
