LETTER: Dagga law sets the zol high

2017-04-13 06:00

The article by Mandla Mahashe,(Dagga: Some say high, some low, City Vision 6 April 2017) refers.

This year will never be forgotten by consumers of the age-old herb.

The expression that I’ve seen on people’s faces on the 6th of April reminded me of the pupils who’ve been waiting in anticipation of their matric exam results.

There where mixed emotions about the article about the legalisation of cannabis. I was so overjoyed it was like obtaining seven distinctions.

Those who felt the same way, must be grateful to Dagga Party leader Jeremy Acton, Rastafarian Garreth Prince and also the Western Cape High Court for making it happen at last.

We can now freely ‘blaze it up’ without the fear of criminalisation and humiliation for smoking the natural herb.

“Now all that remains is for the constitutional court to endorse the decision and for parliament to change sections of the drug trafficing act, as well as the medicines act,” the article said.

To all those who where frowned, learn to accept that cannabis is legal and here to stay and thus they must learn even more about the plant that cures rather than kill.
