Durban - A 51-year-old woman has appeared for dealing in dagga worth about R236 000 in the Louwsburg Magistrate's Court, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Thursday.

Qondeni Ntshaba would remain in custody until her next court appearance on January 10, spokesperson Colonel Jay Naicker said.

Police were investigating the theft of a cow when they found dagga weighing 163kg at a homestead in Ngome in the Vryheid area.

"When we were carrying out a search we found 13 large maize meal bags full of dagga, three bags half full, a number of smaller bags full and a 25 litre drum containing dagga seeds."

The stolen cow was not found.

      Just in case the down thumbers don't know (You probably grew up in this educational dispensation), these are the words of a nursery rhyme and are not racist in any way - purely prejudiced against drug dealers.

    Drugs all over SA and enough to traffic out to other countries.

    I hope they keep her in jail, she deserves to locked-up for a long time.

    Its only plants and it is a shame that she has to go to jail for being in possession of a natural resource.

      @Roann. Yes it might ONLY be plants, but think of how many lives this PLANT has destroyed and how many more it is destroying.

    What's wrong dagga is not a drug is a African herb.It was used long time before western medicines were introduced in SA.No one died because of dagga.

    I can grow a tobacco plant and smoke it. I can grow potatoes and ferment it. How did the government convince people to criminalise a natural resource, proven to have medical properties? Many are fighting to decriminalise it, but it should be legalised. Swaziland would not need to be bailed out, as it is one of their biggest export, although illegal. Our Government can tax it. Many jobs will be created. They can control it as much as they want, just give the masses a choice. Stop making our decision for us. Anyone that says it is evil and\or harmful, have no idea what they are talking about. I challenge you to find just one doctor that will say without conviction, that the plant has only destructive properties. And that is a fact. With some research you can clearly see the pro's far outweighs the con's. (please note that you don't have to smoke the plant in order to take in its medical properties) And to the gateway drug believers, if you want to know the true culprit, walk into any chemist and look around. Most 'legal' drugs prescribed today are far worse than THC. And some over counter drugs are even being used as recreational substances. Most with very bad side effects. Livers and stomachs are feeling the brunt. Don't even get me started about psychology and their so called 'medical' drugs.
