A Note From SKYF.CO
What a journey it has been over the last two months since dropping our first edition.
There have been birthdays, parties, events and of course the endless confusion about what is, or is not, legal when it comes to cannabis.
Whilst we at Skyf appreciate the benefit of being in a pleasantly confused state from time to time this is one area where we could all use some clarity.
To this end, our Skyf team has been hard at work and they have come up with the following basic guidelines which we believe will take us all from a state of confusion to understanding.
So here goes.
In 2018 our Constitutional Court (which is our court of choice being the highest court in the land) ruled that:
the right to privacy entitles an adult to use or cultivate or possess cannabis in private for his or her personal consumption;
dealing in cannabis would not be decriminalised;
The 2018 judgment is the foundation that future legislation will be built on. We are still waiting for this legislation and what we currently have is a Cannabis Bill which is not law.
It has not yet been determined as to how many plants you can grow or how much cannabis you can possess for it still to be regarded as being for personal use. This has been left for Parliament to determine (remember the Cannabis Bill is not law).
While we wait for Parliament it will be for the police to determine, on reasonable grounds, as to whether the quantity in your possession puts you in the category of a personal user or dealer. So, for the moment less quantity and better quality seems to be the simple answer.
An adult may privately/discreetly possess cannabis in public for his or her personal consumption in private.
In terms of a directive issued by the South African Police Services an adult passenger may travel with cannabis on a domestic airline provided that the quantity of cannabis is small (for private consumption) and it is stored discreetly.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, we can move onto happier news in the Cannabis community.
