A company referring to itself as a cannabis incubator have compiled a dagga-grow permit kit and is inviting everyone to apply to grow legal dagga.
In a e-mail leaked to the Dagga Magazine from a source close to iAfricanna, a new incorporation established by the Salute Empowerment Forum, Zubenathi PTY ltd, Mazangani Solutions, Agricultural Research Centre, CSIR and House of Hemp, compiled a dagga-growing permit application kit and has invited anyone with fenced land and the will to grow dagga to attend a free workshop on how to apply for a permit to grow cannabis or hemp in 2017.
Hoax or hope?
The cultivation of dagga for commercial purposes is still highly illegal in South Africa, although the law may soon change upon the outcome of the Cape Town High Court judgement to change the Drug & Trafficking Act of 1992 to accommodate the personal cultivation, possession and use of dagga it will have no impact on the commercialisation of legal dagga.
While the promise of a dagga revolution is noble, and a goal every daggafarian must strive towards, there is currently no way to legally grow dagga.
We did not get correspondence from House of Hemp in time for publication on the legitimacy of the e-mail sent by Daluxolo Kunene.
