Hawks set trap to nab hashish dealer

2011-09-05 15:51

Mbombela - A woman was arrested in Mpumalanga, on Sunday for smuggling hashish from Mozambique to South Africa, the Hawks said.

The police unit received a tip-off about the activities of the 32-year-old woman and set a trap, spokesperson McIntosh Polela said on Monday.

A Hawks agent posed as a customer and bought a kilogram of hashish from her. She was arrested a few days later with 8kg of hashish with a street value of about R800 000 in her possession.

Fifty packets of contraband cigarettes were also seized.

The woman was expected to appear in the Mbombela Regional Court on Thursday.

    What is hashish

      Fedup - 2011-09-05 16:29

      If I'm not mistaken, it comes from the cannabis plant ... don't quote me on that one

      OZNOB - 2011-09-05 16:35

      try reading it as dagga

      Hashish is a cannabis preparation composed of compressed stalked resin glands, called trichomes, collected from the unfertilized buds of the cannabis plant. It contains the same active ingredients but in higher concentrations than unsifted buds or leaves. Hashish is often a paste-like substance with varying hardness and pliability, its color most commonly light to dark brown but varying toward green, yellow, black or red. Hashish is heated in a pipe, hookah, bong, bubbler, vaporizer, hot knife, smoked in joints mixed with cannabis buds, or cooked in foods.

      Big Moose, looks like a CUT N PASTE straight from Google... LOL!!! Here is a quick breakdown: Hashish is manufactured from those FINE LITTLE STICKY HAIRS that grows on the BUD/HEAD of the Marijuana plant. They are gathered by sending shaved naked people thru the plantations, so the STICKY LITTLE RED HAIRS CAN STICK TO THEIR BODIES... they are then rubbed off gathered and cured for 180 minutes in small silver foil tablets, called a TOLA (10 Grams) Looks like one section of a Pratley's Putty set. Hashish is harvested from the Cannabis INDICA plants, found in the Afgahnistan/Pakistan/Indian subcontinent. Shorter plant than the Cannabis Sativa, found in and around South Africa and America's. One can harvest Hash from the Sativa plants, they are just alot TALLER than their Indian counterparts. To smoke hash: One sets a flame to the ball of Hashish, to crumble it into small pinheads then mixed with normal tobacco.... and rolled into a joint or a pipe (chillum) and smoked! No need for one to mix into Ganja/Pot/Dagga/Electric Spinach etc....will just be a waste of good weed. Most European Goof-Balls smoke Hashish this way! Hashish's T.H.C. (psycho-active ingredient) is 10 X stronger than the plant it is taken from! Hashish is not common in SOuth Africa, due to the abundance of Dagga... Hell man... ever Tom Dick and Govt Minsiter is selling Dope!

    You know law enforcement is impotent when their praises is being sung for inconsequential nonsense while 50 people a day are violently slaughtered in the streets and almost no arrests are made and even less convictions are achieved. Was it not so tragic, it would have been a joke. South Africa is not a country it's a farce.
