    Dagga must be leglaized in South Africa. There is no scientific justification for the criminalisation of people who respect and use this plant. It is not only a medically beneficial herb which benefits all users, but is a valuable industrial and energy resource that is only prosecuted because it would challenge the market control and profits of corporations. These corporations include the fossil fuel, pharmaceutical, soya, logging, biotech, cotton, synthetic fiber, and prison industries. Legalization would promote equitable participation by EVERYONE in a carbon neutral economy and if enough was planted on a megascale, we could even undo climate change(global atmospheric warming) caused by the burning of fossil fuels. Dagga is also our only hope to survive the post-Peak Oil economic collapse and resulting global famine that no-one is wrting about. Here is further info about the benfits that we could enjoy from Cannabis dagga if we legalize dagga in South Africa for the PUBLIC (not corporate) benefit. LEGALIZE
