Johannesburg - Two men were arrested in Oudtshoorn for possession of 19.2kg of dagga, police said on Saturday.

Following a tip-off from members of the public police stopped and searched a bus enroute from Bloemfontein to Cape Town on Friday, said Captain Malcolm Pojie.

They found 19.2kg of dagga concealed in two suitcases. The two men, believed to be from Mossel Bay were then arrested.

"We believe that the dagga was destined for distribution in the Southern Cape," said Pojie.

The men will appear in the Oudtshoorn Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    Such a small amount? Thought it was in tones. We usually carry that around Soweto on bikes and in purpose-made satchels. News really? 20kgs is news? Aw?

      No need to burn a person cause he has not seen the light. Awareness through the internet is exploding, Dagga oil reverses cancer bru. I love t*ts and would prefer a natural healing remedy from our back yards than some once off surgical removal.

      "searched a bus enroute from Bloemfontein to Cape Town on Friday" The most fertile lands on earth are that side. What a waste, could have made a SuperCar body with that.

      The above mini documentary entitled Dagga: The Truth! showcases the history of dagga in South Africa. The video was released yesterday to coincide with SA's largest ever dagga march through Cape Town. 400 people joined in to call for our inalienable human right to use dagga. It was a great success with many pedestrians shouting and waving and passing cars sounding their horns in support. South Africa is waking up to the facts. Freedom of choice as enshrined in our Constitution.

The success of this march has illustrated that the South African cannabis community has a voice and they are no longer afraid to use it in the face of injustice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlhO7eJB2SY For pictures of the march check out http://www.belowthelion.co.za/pictures-marijuana-march-cape-town/

      let them do something constructive instead of "marching" and making fools out of themselves. Crikey you bunch are doff must be the crap you smoke and a halfwit mentality.

      Buzz - 2012-05-10 12:53

      Haha Zion. Thet are doing something "constructive". They're standing up for their rights in trying to change a law that hurts both tokers and non tokers alike. Much more constructive than some apartheid relic spitting hate via his keyboard.

  • Roann - 2012-05-07 14:51

    what did they do wrong? how did their dagga have a negative impact on anybody? the law is outdated and it is time we demand change

  • Gareth - 2012-05-09 09:11

    LOL @ Zion
