Restore dagga in South Africa, restore the dignity of all dagga users

Restore dagga in South Africa, restore the dignity of all dagga users
  
  

 


Why this is important

We the dagga community of South Africa choose to use dagga over alcohol and tobacco. Why are we driven to pubs and taverns when we can't drive ourselves home.

In South Africa dagga possession is seen as a more serious offense than drunken driving.

As many as 10 people are charged with dagga possesion by any single South African police station on any given day.

What right do you or any other entity or organization have to deny me this God given plant?

Dagga laws are based on segregation and discrimination. The truth is dagga is safer than sugar, alcohol and tobacco.

Politicians who support prohibition knowingly support organized crime.

There is no logical or scientific reason why dagga should remain illegal.

In recent times we have come to realize that dagga is not a schedule 1 drug with no medicinal benefit. If our government could lie to us about the truth of dagga what else could they be lying about.

People are killing themselves with tobacco why can't I use dagga that does not kill?

People skydive and do all kinds of potentially fatal activities none of which are illegal because there is no victim.

Show me the victim of the crime dagga users are charged with?

No victim, no crime, no charges, no time!
