Cape Town - Three men were arrested after they were found in possession of dagga outside Beaufort West on Wednesday morning, Western Cape police said.

Police stopped and searched their VW Polo at a roadblock on the N1 when they noticed it had no number plates, spokesperson Captain Malcolm Pojie said.

They found a bag wrapped with tape between the legs of the passenger sitting next to the driver. Other bags, covered with a blanket, were on the back seat and in the boot. All of them contained dagga weighing about 140kg, with an estimated street value of R140 000.

The men, from Gugulethu, Cape Town, and aged between 33 and 48, were expected to appear in the Beaufort West Magistrate's Court soon.

    Who pays R1000 per kilo for dagga? There's the grower, police bribes, harvester, sorter, transporter, police bribes, wholesaler, police bribes, dealer, police bribes, repackger, police bribes, and all the poor runners that lose their jobs and their stock. They all get paid some of this R1000 ? For a weed that is openly smoked on TV shows! Less harmful than cigarettes or alcohol and keep a neurotic producing. Even medicinal for some diseases? NUTS!

    Why do government arrest these people making an honest living. IS IT BECAUSE THEY DON'T PAY TAX? What's the difference with the huge multi billion dollar cigaratte companies? eish?
