    The South African cannabis cases has been postponed to later this year with no date set. It leaves more time for the dagga couple to fund raise some more and to book more people to testify.

    It is really important for South Africa to change it’s cannabis laws because A – it helps fight cancer and we need everything that can help fight cancer safely. B – legalizing cannabis will help South Africa’s economy greatly and I mean fucking greatly.

    Cannabis is non harmful, safe, non addictive, won’t cause lung cancer, helps depression, reduces seizures, ect. Cannabis is there to help the body.

    Support Cannabis legalization in South Africa.

      that’s just her view on people who do the 4:20 thing.

      Fuck. I didn’t even know it’s 4:20. who the fuck cares if it’s 4:20, we need the cannabis laws to change here in south africa, people are dying of cancer around us.

        Actually agree but for different reasons, “war on drugs” is total waste of tax payer money and police force.

        If adults want to willingly engaged in self destructive behavior why try stop them, too many people especially in this country. Rather regulate and stop the spin off crime.

          yes that is one of the main issues about legalizing cannabis in south africa, to stop the war on drugs.

          and to that argument, cannabis is safe, non harmful, non addictive, if an adult wants to ingest a plant that is non harmful to one self and others, he/she should have the right to do so.

          cannabis was made illegal in south africa because of racial issues and not because it’s bad. another reason why cannabis laws need to change because it’s a racist law.

            a judge in america i think has ruled that driving a car while “high” does not impair your judgements because that’s not how cannabis works.

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            April 20, 2016 at 17:22

            Driving while high on any form of drugs impairs your cognitive and motoric abilities, more importantly,cannabis lowers your reaction speed, don’t be an idiot, a judge doesn’t have the right study base to prove that claim, something you could possibly learn from, study, prove and repeat…

          • Ryanza

            April 20, 2016 at 17:28

            any form. you need to learn that different drugs does different things.

            cannabis is not a drug. it’s a plant. and concerning driving while “high”, drive at slower speeds and more aware of the surroundings because they driving 60. driving slower doesn’t mean slower reactions.
            and you will find bad drivers where the cannabis can not be blamed.

            Let’s not act like cannabis is the same as lsd while driving.

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            April 20, 2016 at 17:35

            Have you seen what a crash at 60kph looks like, into a static object? Have you seen what it looks like when the other object is heading the opposite direction? Don’t dude, just don’t…

            Certain responsibilities cannot be given to people under the influence of anything.

          • Ryanza

            April 20, 2016 at 17:39

            there are breaks on cars hence why many crashes are avoided. Do you think a cannabis “high” person don’t know how to break.

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            April 20, 2016 at 17:52

            I would suppose that you mean brake, and no, I’m not referring to the inability to brake,I’m referring to the inability to drive, let me give you a little lesson in something we call science when you are traveling at 60km/h you are being displaced at a rate of 16.67meters per second, now, if you come to a full stop in one second, assuming you have an average mass of 80kgs, you will be exerting 1.3 tonnes of force on yourself, grim picture yet?

            If you have one second to react and your reaction time has been reduced by say half, you’ll be flat, literally in a second, so please, don’t do drugs and drive if you do, you’re a f*cking moron

          • Ryanza

            April 20, 2016 at 17:58

            i’m the fucking moron? i told you want a judge ruled in a court case about this topic.

            to me it seems you arguing against something you refuse to understand. And now you with name calling.

            ya fuck you too buddy. that’s where i stop with people like you. name calling to prove your points. great job.

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            April 20, 2016 at 18:15

            Have you ever read anything within context? If you drive while under the influence of a drug, you are a moron, that’s quite simple really, do you do drugs? Yes/No, do you drive while under their influence? Yes No, well if yes you are said moron, but I guess, and this is a wild guess, that by you believing that I’m insulting you directly, that you do drive under the influence, if that is true, it means that you are admitting to breaking the law, in writing I might add, on an open forum, and judging by the overwhelming knowledge of scientific evidence you’ve provided to back your claim about the effects of drugs on human reaction times, you fully understand what that entails.

            Anyway, I’m sure, that if you had children or had a sense of responsibility, you wouldn’t condone the use of drugs while driving…

          • Ryanza

            April 20, 2016 at 17:53

            the point is that, driving while under the influence of cannabis, was taking to the courts of law where a judge went through everything and ruled that driving while under the influence of cannabis doesn’t impair one’s judgement while driving.
            Court of law ruling. And it makes sense.

            Yes there are bad drivers on the roads and the serious accidents are bad because of bad judgement. But those accidents are not attributed to driving under the influence of cannabis. Let’s not blame the one on the other.

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            April 20, 2016 at 18:01

            Maybe you don’t understand the point I’m trying to make, let me spell it out then, the judge is not qualified to make the call on whether driving under the influence of cannabis will impair your abilities, this has to be proven by a scientific institution, medical or otherwise…

          • Ryanza

            April 20, 2016 at 18:02

            Well your last part, it happens in any case.

            Rather focus all energy on stopping inebriated people, keeping it all away from children (schools and playgrounds).

            The fact is all illegal drugs were perfectly legal for years some time during the last century and when criminalized abuse and much worse surrounding crime increased .

            April 20, 2016 at 17:27

            Controlling any form of a substance is near impossible, raising awareness only goes so far and a police force can be trusted about as much as they’re trained.
