Legalities of the sale of cannabis products: Gerald Zeederberg
The Constitutional Court says it’s legal for personal use, but most of us remain pretty confused about the future of dagga in South Africa – in a world where the cannabis industry is taking off. The South African Police Service is issuing a stern warning that the establishment of illegal dispensaries/outlets, online sites and social media platforms which are marketing and selling cannabis and cannabis-related products to the public remains illegal, except where specifically allowed in terms of the Medicines and Related Substances Act. They say some of these illegal businesses, purporting to be operating legally in terms of the Traditional Health Practitioners Act (No. 22 of 2007), are also being sold to members of the public as franchises authorised to deal in cannabis and cannabis-related products.
To talk about this is Gerald Zeederberg, National Head of Agriculture: Cannabis Development Council.
