A couple days ago a friend notified me of the terrible and untimely death of a friend, warrior and mentor, Jules Stobbs. Him and his partner, Myrtle Clarke have for just over a decade revolutionized cannabis culture in South Africa. Not only SA, but really the rest of the world. They were brutally attacked in another farm murder in South Africa during the early hours of Friday morning.
“Former Royal Navy sailor Julian Stobbs, 59, was murdered in cold blood while defending his partner after armed robbers broke into their farmland home near Johannesburg.” link
I thought of just making a quick post about this very tragic event. May he rest in peace, hells bells, hippy heaven with loads of plants and good people. My heart breaks for his partner in crime Myrtle and their family and friends.
The official public statement from Fields of Green For All:
“During the early morning hours of Friday, 3 July 2020, an armed robbery took place at the property of Jules Stobbs and Myrtle Clarke, best known as The Dagga Couple. The attackers entered the couple’s bedroom and shot and fatally wounded Jules Stobbs. Myrtle was physically left unharmed and the attackers made off with two cellphones and two laptops. The Cannabis community is mourning the passing of our hero. The family is requesting that the public respect their privacy and allow Myrtle and the family some space during this difficult time. Thank you for the outpouring of love we have already received.”
