Johannesburg - Dagga worth about R200 000 on the street has been seized at a roadblock in Heidelberg, Gauteng police said on Monday.

Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said police stopped the vehicle at a weigh bridge on Sunday evening.

Four people were arrested and would appear in the Heidelberg Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Dlamini said the roadblock was part of stepped up anti-crime efforts which would continue up to the festive season.

These would include stop and searches, roadblocks, raids and the pursuit of wanted criminals.

    great, more ppl arrested for a law which is bogus. might as well illegalize ALL plants on this earth.

      It's drugs, dude... Drugs are illegal! U are obviously a pothead, rather shut up and stop typing things on here when you are high...

      CaptainGaza - 2012-09-17 10:12

      Jason, do you hit a pint on Friday's at all or on the weekend watching the ruggers?

      JasonMichelle - 2012-09-17 10:22

      Captain, nope... I understand that this is not as \hard-core\ as other drugs, but a drug stays a drug. The law is the law, abide by it.

      CaptainGaza - 2012-09-17 10:24

      Jason, I disagree, just because it's a law doesn't make it right. We need to remember who imposed this law and why. Do you know the history of these laws concerning marijuana?

      LanfearM - 2012-09-17 10:25

      @ JasonMichelle - Oh well, so I guess if slavery was still lawfull we had to abide by that too. And so forth. Laws can, and should, be changed when the reason for their existence is obsolete. People will ALWAYS take drugs, be it alcohol or dagga [or something else]. Legalise it, age-restrict it, tax it.

      LanfearM - 2012-09-17 10:26

      Besides, must we eradicate every kind of plant or animal on this earth that we weird humans use to become intoxicated? Next they will ban grapes because you make wine from it.

      Uhm, the drugs that the Government is giving us is even WORSE!!! The Alcohol and the Cigarettes you smoke is exactly what they want!, Take the stuff they give you that even kills more lives, not one person to date has died of the usage of Marijuana... Its a Plant... Natural... Do yourself a favour and do some research on your Pineal Gland inside your brain, even little things like the water we drink and the toothpaste we use contains substances like Fluoride that attacks your Pineal Gland, hence the older you get the less you dream... You see, your pineal gland is the little thing the Government DON'T want you to use... because a Population capable of THINKING will be a danger to them...

      Hey, big tobacco companies already give a lot of money to political parties around the world and they have to put up with various bans on smoking. The least governments can do is to stifle potential competition.

    Well done Coppers for wasting my tax money arrersting people delivering a totally 100% natural plant.

    Its about time the pigs focused of hard criminals not passive smokers. Or do the right thing ban alcohol , cigarettes , coffee and over the counter pain medication. But I guess you making to much money of of those to really care... Dagga could enable every person in South Africa to be more self sufficient. Common uses are clothing , medication , essential oils , bio fuels , building materials and food. But of course South African Government is making to much money of weed to let everyone grow it. Damn the man.

      zionpercival.pay - 2012-09-17 11:26

      Smokers, those that smoke dagga are criminals if you like it or not.

      stefan.kruger.1297 - 2012-09-17 12:21

      Zion, you have such a cool name giving allot of meaning to what Bob Marley used to say, but your totally a fake towards it... You're carrying a name that stands for something you don't.. hahaha

  • zionpercival.pay - 2012-09-17 11:24

    GOOD, GOOD, GOOD: Give these cops a Bells, No, in fact give each one a case of GLENFIDDICH. At least just so much more is now off the streets.

      beliinda.sham - 2012-09-17 11:52

      COMPLETELY agree! Well done! Great work!

      arne.verhoef - 2012-09-18 19:57

      Yes! because alcohol is lovely, kind and doesnt kill you at all... Oh wait. Zion, your a bigoted sheep, beliinda, I see youre a member of 'Friends for Jackie Selebi'... I dont really have to say much, do I?

  • stefan.kruger.1297 - 2012-09-17 12:01

    Drugs like Marijuana is Not Legal, because its the only thing the government don't have to tax and take 100% profit... With Hemp you can do anything, from building houses to making clothes... but its way too risky for the Government for people to make their own money...

      pierrefrewd.juice - 2012-09-17 12:37

      Dagga makes you stupid, and honestly, in this country stupid is in oversupply.

      stefan.kruger.1297 - 2012-09-17 13:24

      Im sure that 100% of the world can say that the booze you drink over weekends makes you stupid and dangerous at the same time... so pick one!

  • kyle.buitendag - 2012-09-17 12:57

    ag geez, just had an increase from the mert..........now im in for another :(

  • tyranvz - 2012-09-18 08:13

    Its a hardcore gateway drug. Like rascals. I had one puff of weed once. Yesterday I sold my mom for another hit of that green nectar. If I can't get more I might have to start snorting toilet duck and glaze air fresher. Anyone wanna buy a kidney?
