SAPS warns that selling dagga and related products remain illegal

November 4, 2019

VAAL TRIANGLE - The South African Police Service is warning that the establishment of illegal dispensaries, online sites and social media platforms which are marketing and selling dagga and related products remains illegal, except where specifically allowed in terms of the Medicines and Related Substances Act. Last year the Constitutional Court ruled that it is not a criminal offence for an adult to use, possess or grow dagga in private for personal consumption. The police’s Vishnu Naidoo says they are mandated to and will act against businesses that sell dagga illegally but also against the customers who buy the products.
