    Looks like the quality and quantity of weed coming from the Eastern Cape exceeds that of service delivery and education..

    Estimated street value of R200 000? Then it's pretty piss poor stuff considering 1g will cost you R1.

      Inflated pricing and the middle man nailing you there.. Could be R1 per gram if it's first line production and transport..

      Shut it square. Nigerians dealers only deal with hard drugs. Think twice before commenting on something you obviously know nothing about... then think again. Seriously though, don't believe a damn word these E-cape cops say. People I knew where busted for under 1kg of pot and they told the media it was 10kg. The media was stupid enough to take their word for it and who's going to correct them? Even with the court documents people still refused to believe the police straight up lied!

    People in the Eastern Cape grow dagga, because they are desperate and don't have any 'legal' ways to make an income. Legalize dagga and establish a multi-billion rand industry in the province. Poverty alleviation and upliftment will be so much more effective and hasty.

      Politicians are not here to alleviate poverty, they are there to control and maintain it, if they alleviate it who is going to do all the crappy jobs like pick up gabage or clean the streets.

    Do something constructive and bust the REAL drug lords. In 2 or 3 months those plants will bud again. and if you destroy their plants, they will just grow more. Why? Because weed is a natural plant, been around longer than what humans have and will continue to be. It can grow anywhere on the planet so WHAT makes the government think they can stop it? rather focus on those drug labs that are setup INTENTIONALLY to manufacture the disgusting drugs that kill people everyday.

    If dagga was sold legally and subject to VAT, then the Eastern Cape would surely have a brighter (and more laidback) economy than what is currently being experienced.

    A kilo of weed will set me back R1000? Eish.
