OLX now allow dagga related accessories, but they don’t

Since the legalisation of dagga OLX have decided to change their policy to allow all dagga related accessories to be bought and sold on the OLX platform.

When the state recently lost their appeal against the Constitutional ruling giving South African’s private dagga rights, the Dagga Shop opened up a store on the OLX platform. However after posting their ad for the Phantom Premium vaporizer to the platform  they soon learned it was rejected.

Dagga Magazine decided to investigate the matter and contacted OLX when it learned of the discrimination against the online advertisement of the daggafarian smart shop, this while tobacco and alcohol accessories are freely advertised on the platform.

Max, a service consultant at OLX responded to Dagga Magazine’s questions in an e-mail: “Since the legalisation of dagga, we have revised our moderation rules and have since decided to allow accessories of dagga only. OLX does not discriminate against any group and that includes daggafarians. All items that are an accessory to dagga are allowed on OLX, excluding dagga. OLX has no interest in the tobacco industry. Similar to dagga paraphernalia, we allow the accessories relating to tobacco but not the tobacco itself to be sold on our platforms. Our posting rules are only dictated by the South African laws. Should the South African laws change regarding dagga, we will review our moderation rules accordingly.”

The Dagga Shop have since updated their ad to read Phantom Premium Dagga Vaporizer, however the ad has since been rejected. Upon inquiring about the reason the ad was denied, OLX stated in an email that it was due to the website url that was included directing to Dagga Shop’s online store.

The daggafarian smart shop has since tried editing the add to omit the link. However the ad has been rejected, contradicting the statement OLX have made earlier.

Guilty by association?

It is not clear whether AbaThembu King Buyelekhaya Zwelibanzi Dalindyebo does smoke dagga or has the media just got him wrong but his association with dagga in the South African media certainly warrants the King to be on this list.

Victims of Prohibition

A massive public debate was triggered in 2001 by the revelation that six members of the touring party of South African cricketers admitted smoking dagga in an Antigua hotel room to celebrate South Africa’s fourth Test win over West Indies on April 10 2001.

The guilty players were Herschelle Gibbs, Andre Nel, Justin Kemp, Paul Adams and Roger Telemachus, along with team physiotherapist Craig Smith.

Our Government Must Be Drunk As Fuck

2016 is halfway gone and South Africa is still in the dark ages on the restoration of dagga rights.

This begs the question: Is our government drunk as fuck on their crackling from the Parliamentary basement cellar?

No, seriously!

Dagga funded politics

The current ruling party funded their political agenda with the help of a dagga industry during apartheid even though it was at the time and still is today considered by “authorities” an illicit industry, the African National Congress have always known the roots of apartheid dagga law.

Major advances in dagga science

They have witnessed the amazing scientific discoveries regarding dagga research of the past 15 years.

With the most abundant and most liberating research being released in the last 5 years.

Yet more than 22 years into their reign they are now responsible for jailing a segment of the rainbow nation whom chooses to self medicate with dagga

The bloody agents still only focus on the propaganda, the negative and misinterpreted information while the positive & liberating research is ignored and somehow non-existent in their reality.

Corrupted consensus of the masses

To the consciousness of the general South African public dagga is a sin, a harmful gateway drug instilled by 100 years of propaganda, lies, pseudo-science and the brutal enforcement of unjust laws.

Thus the general & lawful consensus of dagga in South Africa is corrupted and delusional meanwhile politicians in Parliament get drunk on their legal drugs from the basement cellar before choosing to ignore or make irrational decisions that effect all daggafarians of South Africa.

Is government too drunk to legalise the herb?

Cape Town Gang & Drug Task Team Receive DEA Training

Statement by Cape Town’s Executive Mayor, Patricia de Lille

The City of Cape Town actively encourages the creation of cooperative partnerships with the international community and stakeholders in order to boost knowledge sharing of best practice.

We believe in undertaking joint ventures in order to empower our staff and our communities. The ultimate objective of such partnerships is to improve the lives of Cape Town’s residents.

As part of our commitment to building a safe city, we have entered into international partnerships. These have allowed for training and models of best practice to be applied to improve our Safety and Security Directorate.

A partnership that we believe has been especially fruitful is one that we have fostered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) of the United States Department of Justice. They have extended an invitation for eight members of the Safety and Security Directorate’s Gang and Drug Task Team to attend an advanced drug agent course from 26 to 30 January 2015 at the International Law Enforcement Academy in Gaborone, Botswana.

The eight members of the City’s Safety and Security Directorate will be representing South Africa. There will also be representatives from Ghana, Namibia, Uganda and Botswana. We would like to express our gratitude to the United States Government for bearing the cost of our delegates’ travel, meals, accommodation and local transport.

The training course will further develop the knowledge and skills required for a law enforcement officer to initiate and develop a counter-drug investigation and to analyse information. The course will also introduce more advanced topics such as clandestine laboratories, diversion investigations, managing undercover operations, and controlled deliveries.

Our Safety and Security Directorate has received extensive training support from the DEA over the last four years. Our relationship with the DEA started in 2009, when five officials attended drug enforcement training in Botswana. In the last three years, 63 training opportunities have been provided through the following seminars:

  • Advanced Enforcement
  •  Basic and Advanced Drug Enforcement
  • Undercover and Surveillance Practical Applications
  • Chemical Diversion Investigation

In addition, in 2012 the DEA arranged for a chemical diversion specialist from Germany to assist the Safety and Security Directorate in Cape Town upon our request.

The United States Government has invested R10 million in our Metro Police Department through drug enforcement training, study tours to the United States, School Resource Officer training, and FBI management training.

We have already seen numerous improvements in operations from our Gang and Drug Task Team since they embarked on this training. During their most recent drug bust, the unit confiscated hashish, cocaine and two wine bottles filled with suspected liquid MDMA with a street value of more than R1 million. The suspects who were arrested are possibly linked to a European syndicate.

Another major drug bust took place less than two months ago, when Metro Police recovered tik to the value of R1,2 million in Maitland.

Our latest available statistics indicate that the Metro Police made 2 042 drug-related arrests and confiscated 43 020 units of narcotics during 2014.

These successes are the direct result of the intelligence-driven operations of the Gang and Drug Task Team, which can be attributed to the training that our officers have received from the DEA.

Through the effective use of resources and models of international best practice, the City has created an efficient and successful Metro Police service.

In the presence of Consul-General Teddy Taylor, we would like to thank the United States Government, and the DEA in particular, for their investment in our staff and, in turn, the lives of our residents.

Top Cape Town Cop Loves Reggae Music

A T-Shirt worn by senior policeman Jeremy Vearey caused every national publication to pick a bone for a piece of sensationalism last year.

The photo went viral after DA official, Mark Wiley, caused a stir in public about the image showing  a top Cape Town cop wearing Rastafarian clothing. “..brandishing a dagga leaf logo” described Wiley.

Senior policeman Jeremy Vearey came under fire for wearing a t-shirt bearing the word “Rastafarian” and a dagga leaf, given to him as a farther’s day gift from his son, to an Equal Education march to parliament in June of 2013

Jeremy laughed it off as he explained that the T-Shirt was a father’s day gift from his two sons. He had only intended to wear it on the day to show appreciation to his son, after they had dared him to wear it to the march, and did not do so to condone drug use.  “There is nothing more to it,” he added.

Jeremy’s love for reggae music is well known publicly. Facebook users complimented him on his choice of clothing.

“Nice hey, like the T-shirt”, wrote Deon Safers.
