Hey people well I'm gonna meantion a few things we all knew about cannabis, and hopefully a few things you did not know :-) From now I will use the word "dagga" instead of marijuana or cannabis, this is the word we use in South Africa
Most people who do not use dagga do not know anything about it.They think that it is bad because the government says it is bad.
Police who arrest dagga users & growers could be using their time to fight real crime.Keeping dagga illegal is a waist of taxpayer's money.It is much easier to arrest people for growing and smoking Dagga than it is to find a murderer.
Many places that sell Dagga also sell hard drugs like heroin or tik.These are the people that get their customers addicted to hard drugs. Dagga users are forced to be part of the criminal undergroung.
The public lose respect for police when they harass people by searching their homes &cars for Dagga.
The law against Dagga is a law where the punishment is far worse than the "crime".
If you are arrested for dagga, who have you harmed? It is a crime without a victim. How can you be guilty if there is no victim? The law against dagga is the only law in SA where you are guilty until proven innocent.
Illegal Dagga puts lots of money from growing and selling dagga into the hands of crimenal gangs.
Some people grow & sell Dagga just to put food on the table. These people are called crimimals and treated the same as violent gangs.
Prohibition of Dagga in South Africa is unconstitutional, unscientific & wrong.
