Johannesburg - The trial of two men found in possession of dagga was postponed in the Beaufort West Magistrate's Court on Thursday, Western Cape police said.

Veli Mtiya and Andile Kalo, both 33, were allegedly found with 240kg of dagga with an estimated street value of R240 000.

They were arrested on Wednesday night after police pulled their truck over near a Beaufort West weigh bridge.

The matter was postponed to 24 May for a bail application.

    The saddest part of this is that it's probably jhat that the police are valuing at R100 a gram.

      240kg = 240 000 gram. so that works out to R1 a gram. Must have been really bad spliff.

      My apologies, you are correct. That must either be lawn clippings, or the police are keeping its value low so that no one will care if some goes missing...
