As a daggafarian in South Africa you are exposed to an illegal unregulated market which is a direct result of legislation that feels nothing for you or the healthy choices you decide upon. Your government is spending a very large budget on a war and you are the enemy.
I do not need to tell you about the gory details of the war on dagga. There is a large probability that these unjust laws have effected your life in some way. You might yet have to realise how.
Please be vigilant, be aware and never be affraid to do the right thing.
Recently Facebook sent a letter to the Drug Enforcement Agency to let them know they are in violation of Facebook policies.
“Facebook has long made clear that law enforcement authorities are subject to these policies,” Sullivan wrote. “We regard DEA’s conduct to be a knowing and serious breach of Facebook’s terms and policies.”
Facebook stated they want confirmation that the DEA will halt using fake Facebook accounts in its operations.
This letter follows shortly after an incident where a woman from New York, Sondra Arquiett, sued the DEA for using her name and private data on a fake facebook profile as part of their drug-law enforcement operations.
The DEA has retaliated to the letter by saying the agent responsible did so in his private capacity and the agency does not accept liability for his actions.
South Africans can only speculate whether the South African Police or Hawks use fake Facebook profiles in their own drug enforcement operations, but it is probably best if you assume they do.
