South Africa just implemented a potential new framework for cannabis laws, and it sucks. - unlimited for seeds and seedlings
- four flowering plants for those living alone, or eight for homes with two adults or more
- 600 grams of dried cannabis if you live alone, or 1.2 kilograms in homes with two or more adults.
It sounds great from face value, and yes decriminalisation is really happening, but the law is open to abuse and in corrupt SA its already been seen that the new law is going to be used to punish growers. Dealing in cannabis you can face up to 15 years in prison, this is a problem, but on the bright side it is down by 10 years from the old laws of cannabis.
Bottomline is it great to be able to “legally” grow cannabis, even if you are limited to only 4 flowering plants.
