4. Attend the annual Global Cannabis March & the 420 Dagga Day celebrations.

The annual Global Cannabis March takes place on the first Saturday of May every year. This year the march will take place in Cape Town, Johannesburg & Durban. Find the Global Cannabis March on Facebook

  • Durban march will be from Bulwer Park to Essenwood Fleamarket
  • Jozi march will start and finish at the famous Mofolo Park in central Soweto
  • Cape Town march will start and finish close to the Cape Peninsula University of Technology: CPUT

The 420 Dagga Day celebration takes place on the 20th of April each year in Johannesburg and is hosted by The Dagga Couple.

5. Become an activist.

Activists are people who see the need for change and devote their time to doing something about it. They are driven by passion and a vision for a better future. Activism comes naturally to some, while for others, it’s thrust upon them when they experience situations that hurt them or those they love. Whatever your reason for wanting to become an activist, you have the ability to do so no matter your age, your means, or your background. It’s people like you, people who believe they have the power to make a difference, who end up changing the world for the better. See How To Become An Activist to learn more about becoming an activist. You should be independent because that shows you are committed to the situation.

6. Research, read a book & share what you have learned.

There are so many good ebooks available. Read them, share them.

7. Start a Dagga Party Ward in your area.

If you put a Dagga Party Majority into a local council, that council would legalize in that district. – Jeremy Acton

Unify with all daggafarians in your neighbourhood to form a local co-operative Dagga Party group. This group must include all who use the Herb, and would be an inclusive group of all races, and all religious faiths. Each ward should have a group, and where two or more wards cover an area, those wards can make positive co-operative contact for the good of their neighbourhood. Where two groups form in one ward, they must amalgamate, with the elected officials working together rather than competing against each other.

For the Gathering you can download the Ward Group Constitution, (aka the Constituent Association Constitution). You fill it in to name your group and to keep a register of members. Ensure the membership info is hidden from outsiders as the Herb is still illegal. http://www.daggaparty.org/download/CAConstitution.pdf

By doing this we effectively reshape the politics of our townships and of South Africa as a whole.
Your group must also elect a President of the Group, a Secretary and a Treasurer, and must encourage youth membership. Doing this is more important than just voting a distant leader into a Parliamentary seat, and then to just allow the Dagga prohibition and socio-economic situation in the townships to continue.

8. Become an Active Member of the Dagga Union of South Africa

Help the union gain momentum. Stand up for daggafarian rights. Currently the members group consists of over 15,971 people.

10. Be Proudly Daggafarian: Get out of the ‘The Dagga Closet’!

End the dagga taboo. Show South Africa that being a pothead does not mean you are lazy, unproductive or a good for nothing.

Dagga is a taboo subject to some members of society. As a result, there are many dagga consumers that limit the amount of people they admit their dagga use to. For instance all of my friends and family know that I consume dagga, but it’s not something I told all of my co-workers at my last job due to employment policies that would fire me if my dagga consumption became known. I have never looked at it like I’m ashamed to be a dagga consumer. I just have always felt that I am protecting dumb people from themselves by not telling them about my dagga consumption, as they will no doubt react in a harsh, illogical way.

A case study would be legendary Olympic athlete Michael Phelps. Michael Phelps won 14 Gold medals (16 medals overall) for the United States so far in his life, with possibly more to come. Michael Phelps was considered as an American hero by all of society until pictures surfaced of him taking an Olympic sized bong hit. He was labeled an outcast by conservative America, condemned by parents as being a bad example for children, and lost numerous endorsement deals. This is the same guy that up until that picture surfaced, was considered the standard of what American awesomeness looked like in the new century. The fact that one dagga bong hit picture can outweigh a lifetime of achievement at a world record level in some people’s eyes is disgusting to me.

There are countless people that I worked with that knew me as a hard worker, as someone that they could rely on to get the job done, and that I was a very articulate communicator. Unfortunately, their perceptions would change if they knew I consumed dagga, despite the fact that I still possess all of the qualities that they thought made me a good person. That’s just how strong reefer madness is in some circles of society. It’s sad and unfortunate, but it is what it is.

I know that my experience is pretty standard for most dagga consumers. dagga consumers encounter uneducated, biased people everyday that are easier to avoid than confront. Have you ever argued with someone that is ‘gone off the reefer madness?’ There’s absolutely no way to change their minds. I conserve my energy by avoiding people like that and looking for people that are on the fence about the issue. I love ‘coming out of the dagga closet’ when I talk to those type of people.

I like to talk to ‘luke warm’ dagga supporters that I meet at a workplace or some other settings, and I encourage others to do so as often as you feel comfortable with. These type of citizens, which are a majority of South Africa, generally agree that dagga prohibition has failed, and that there is a lot of false hype that has kept dagga illegal for so long. I once heard Radical Russ Belville refer to a study that stated three in four people support ending dagga prohibition, but only one in four thinks their neighbor agrees. These people are just waiting for someone to bring the issue to a personal level, as some likely don’t smoke dagga themselves. However, if you are known to them as a hard worker, that you are someone that they can depend on, and you can articulate your stance on dagga to them, chances are you will sway them from being on the fence to supplying their signature for a dagga reform initiative or more.

Have you ‘come out of the dagga closet?’ If so, do you have any tips for others that are hesitant to ‘come out of the dagga closet?’ Can you elaborate in the comments section about your experience so that others can benefit from your knowledge? If you haven’t ‘come out of the dagga closet,’ why not? Is it due to employment reasons? Fear of backlash from family or friends? Are you in a relationship with someone that you don’t want to know about your dagga consumption? Some other reason? I look forward to what readers have to say.

The #DaggaGate Conspiracy

The Plandai Conspiracy to steal your Cannabis.

This conspiracy consists of Plandai (ref 1,2,3) The Dagga Couple (ref 5), the late Mario Ambrosiani, (ref 19, Source 1 & 2)  MP,  Advocate Robin Stransham Ford (ref10) founder of the Cancer Treatment Campaign or CTC (ref 20) and Tony Budden (ref 6)(ref11). They are all agents in a plot to steal from us, the people in this cannabis struggle!

In this piece I will expose the scheme to steal your right to cultivate and the creation of a MONOPOLY! The foundation of which is the single license stipulation in Robin and Mario’s; Medical Innovation Bill of 2013 (ref 13).

As a busy activist in the South African Cannabis legalization movement I have often had many upsetting stories pass my way. About two months ago I had information sent to me about a monopoly (ref 18) in the pipeline conspiring to fully control the emerging Cannabis market in South Africa.

Today I will speak clearly and expose a forthcoming disaster that besieges us all! I will stand up and speak from the conviction that forces these fingers to the keyboard! Ready yourself for the heartbreak!

Recently I started to see a pattern emerge with a common theme. This is a pattern of meetings, circumstances, recordings, social media chat conversations and press releases that pointed to the emergence of a corporate takeover of our Cannabis in SA. I was first made aware of this when I read about a company called Plandai!

Plandai is a pump and dump company (ref 4) who manipulate media to create spikes in their share prices. A ‘’dodgy’’ company conspiring to control the process of cannabinoid extraction in South Africa. Their cannabis subsidiary is Cannabis Science, inc. (ref 21) They have filed all necessary patents for cannabinoid control in Europe (ref 17). Luckily their proposal (ref 18, 19) here in South Africa has not been approved as yet.

The result of their successful proposal would make extraction by anyone other than them a crime. Indeed any part of the plant would be their sole concern and anyone who grows without their consent, would be outside of the law and liable for criminal and civil prosecution.

Their proposal will make Plandai the single license holder to grow and extract Cannabinoids (ref13, 19) for medical purposes in South Africa.

This will make them and their shareholders filthy rich as South Africa is set to be the Cannabis garden of the world. Not to mention we have more than twice the average amount of cannabis consumers according to the U.N.

Exciting for them! However not for you! Leaving you paying high prices; reliant on their monopoly. They presently have a loan from government (ref 2) to finish their ‘Senteeko’ tea farm and green tea extraction facility (the same machinery they plan to extract cannabinoids with )(ref 7) which resides on 8,500 acres of prime farmland in Mpumalanga. Due to open its doors in March of this year for green tea extract production.

The plan is to have; unlicensed growers growing on the land of Sovereign Bantu Kings (ref6), throughout South Africa. Which one can only assume will be sold to Plandai, who shall supply their Senteeko (single license holders) estate with flowering heads for extraction. Tony from The Hemporium will facilitate this, the sovereigns will make their cash from the raw fiber left behind.

This company has a CEO Roger Duffield a who resides on the senteeko farm with second in charge director Calum Duffield {son} and director Doran Duffield {wife}. With the shadowy figure of Jamen Shivelly (ex Microsoft Executive and Director in Plandai) (ref 8) wielding influence over them from the states. Hand in hand with Robin Stransham Ford linked to Plandai through The Cancer Treatment Campaign (ref 20), Tony Budden from Hemporium they plan to implement ‘Let our people grow’ this ploy vital to their plans is already in the pipeline (ref fogfa 42:08).

The Duffields are not activists they have not contributed an iota to this movement. Yet if this matter of an attempted monopoly is not addressed they will have full control of something we should all have free access to, our CANNABIS!

It’s interesting to note that the ‘Dagga Couple’ (ref 12) have on occasion visited Plandai’s Senteeko facility with a personal escort from Roger Duffield. Feel free to ask them! It’s also important to note that I have seen emails sent to Roger from Myrtle Stobbs (ref 16). Why would the Dagga Couple be in correspondence with Plandai? Why are they visiting the inner sanctum of a rogue company conspiring to curb the market? Well midnight contracts and financial incentives make sense!

Jules(ref 12) has no plans to grow after legalization he remarked “I will retire” I wonder how they are going to afford that; after all they run a non-profit organisation (ref fogfa2 08:24) and had all their assets seized when their oil operation was shut down, just how do they plan to do this?

It’s astonishing that a non profit organisation can book out uber expensive venues for their meetings, when they have only 40 members. One can only wonder the true cost of their loyalty to Plandai.

The DC’s business partner and bed fellow Robin Stransham Ford is another blatant Plandai agent. A racist (fogfa2 3:42) advocate who considers himself in-charge (fogfa 21:20) of the legalization movement and who according to his son (Robert Berkeley rec 16:10, 18:33 ) is in constant contact and deep discussions with Roger Duffield. Robin is involved in of ‘Fields of Green for All’, ‘Join the Queue’ ‘Stop the Cops’ and ‘let our people grow’ all apparent ventures associated with the non-profit organisation Fields of Green for All. He is a blatant agent profiteer; who hopes to leave a great financial legacy for his already affluent family.

Are they all shareholders in Plandai? Why do they align with this companies immoral cause? Why did Mario preach exclusivity in his and Robin’s ’Medical Innovation Bill’(ref14)? Well ask them! I think we all deserve an explanation for their greedy aspirations! However there can be little doubt when looking at the evidence that they are all involved in this conspiracy! We must stop them and this bill in its tracks!

And from now on; be aware of those hoping to profit from the suffering of others.

The conditions outlined above are contradictory to the public rhetoric regularly issued by the conglomoration. While all efforts to legalise Cannabis should be applauded, the activities thus far of Plandai would lead to the eventual hijacking of the numerous voluntary citizen efforts in the legalization campaign.

Comrades the Medical Innovation Bill is not the only option available and in other suggestions there is a place for all.
