Summary

By signing this petition you are not admitting to using Dagga, you are calling for the relegalisation of the use of the Cannabis plant for all applications - industrial, health, spiritual and responsible adult use for over 18's. In terms of the Freedom of Expression Act in South Africa, you may not be prosecuted for expressing support for this cause. Your signing of this petition may not be used as evidence against you in any way.

Description

By signing this petition you are pledging support for The Fields of Green for All in their quest for the Relegalisation of the Cannabis plant in South Africa. In doing so you are in agreement with the following core principles of The Fields of Green for All's campaign:
  • The laws prohibiting the use of, and trade in, the dagga (Cannabis) plant are unjust, irrational and based on outdated propaganda. These laws are rooted in our colonial past and its racist agenda.
  • The South African Drugs & Drugs Trafficking Act of 1992 contains no scientific basis for its claims that Cannabis is a dangerous and dependence producing substance.
  • There is widespread ignorance when it comes to the real benefits of the Cannabis plant. This can be seen on both public and law enforcement levels. Widespread education and information initiatives are essential to dispel this ignorance.
  • The punishment far outweighs the crime". Smoking Cannabis is a "victimless crime" and should not be seen as a crime at all. The enforcement of the prohibition of Cannabis costs the South African taxpayer millions every year. Cannabis users are soft targets and prohibition contributes to the scourge of police corruption and organised crime.
  • Relegalisation of Cannabis would pave the way for the development of an Industrial Cannabis industry in South Africa. Industrial Cannabis (similar to Hemp, but with no restriction on the Cannabis plant's THC content) can be used to create jobs in the agriculture, bio fuel, paper, textile and building industries. By doing this, South African industry can reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and pave the way for a more sustainable future.
  • The health benefits of the Cannabis plant are significant and vast amounts of research has been conducted around the world. The law states that there is no medicinal value in the plant. This is blatantly wrong. As Cannabis users, we reserve the right to self-medicate and claim the sovereignty of our bodies above the law.
  • By arresting Cannabis cultivators, traders and users, South African law enforcement is in direct contravention of our basic Human Rights as enshrined in the Bill of Rights & the Constitution. Ordinary law-abiding, tax-paying citizens are arrested every day in South Africa for using Cannabis. This ruins lives and must be stopped.
