The Constitutional Court has upheld the Western Cape High Court ruling that the private use of dagga is legal.
The ruling states that the possession, cultivation and use of dagga for private use is allowed in South Africa.
But, if you are not in possession of the substance, how do you get a hold of it?
Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser Show debated on the matter.
Jabu a caller says he spent some time in the Nederlands for about a year and there is no crime or violence there.
He adds that he doesn't understand why dagga was banned in South Africa in the first place.
If you look at the ruling, it talks about cultivation is allowed meaning that if I am found with dagga, chances are that I got it from someone who is already cultivating it.— Jabu, caller
Another caller Hamilton says the ruling doesn't say that selling seeds is illegal.
Meaning that if I am already in possession of the seeds, I can sell them to you to plant at home.— Hamilton, caller
Carol also a caller adds that she has a lovely bush of marijuana growing in her garden.
My gardener got me the seeds, I put them into cotton wool until they started sprouting and then I planted them.— Carol, caller
And it is wonderful, dry it up and make tea, it is good for my athritis.— Carol, caller
