Johannesburg - Four men were arrested in Silverton, Pretoria, on Wednesday with 64.5kg of dagga in their possession, police said.

Captain Jan Sepato said members of the flying squad saw a car whose boot was loaded in such a way that it could not close.

"They pulled over the vehicle and searched it. They found two suitcases filled with dagga with a street value of R120 000. All four were arrested for dealing in dagga."

Sepato said one of the men apparently came from Pietermaritzburg on a bus and the other three went to fetch him at the station.

The four, aged between 27 and 52 years, are expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court soon.

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
