Dube-Ncube said ordinary South Africans must be licensed to grow cannabis, “as they have enough experience”.

Speaking at the Cannabis Investment Protocol at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban, economic development MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube said the government did not want ordinary members of society, who were involved in the planting of marijuana, to be left behind.

The national and provincial agriculture and rural development departments will assist with land access, testing, fencing and business support from the agricultural perspective. The community safety and liaison department and police will play a critical role in ensuring safety and security measures during planting and harvesting.

“To the paper or cloth manufacturer, it is the plant that provided much of our paper and clothing for hundreds of years and produces four times more fibre per hectare than trees. To the environmentalist, it is the plant that could greatly slow deforestation, restore robbed nutrients by other crops,” she said.

The Constitutional Court can learn from Canada’s Cannabis ActWhat are the definitions, of ‘privacy’ and ‘a private place’ — and what about the privacy of one’s car, ask Martha Smit and Roxanne Gilbert Oh well, in that case, drunk driving is a discretionary act protected by the right to privacy. You narcophiles are the absolute worst. This article is stupid, and a bald-faced case of instrumental morality.
